Also I am unable to grant Read/Write access to "everyone", I get a no permission error when doing so.
Unable to delete XDJ RX2 Recordings - locked files
I have the same problem as mentioned in this post, and the offered solution does not work. I am unable to delete most saved recordings made by the XDJ-RX2 on a USB drive:
In the "Get Info" screen I can uncheck the Locked checkbox like so:
but still I am unable to delete the file after having unlocked it. According to the screen above I have Read & Write access to the file. I am no longer getting the "file is locked" warning when deleting the file and am asked to fill out my password:
After doing so however I still get the following error:
I have copied some of these files to my harddrive and now am unable to delete these files from my harddrive as well. Please help in providing a solution.

I was able to delete the files via the terminal using the 'rm' command as superuser (either by using 'sudo rm' or by becoming superuser using 'su' and then using 'rm'). Why it doesn't work through the regular route (I'm an admin user) I have no idea.
Detailed instructions describing the workaround can be found here.
I finally found the reason why these files can't be modified or deleted. They have the unix 'uappnd' flag, which makes them immutable.
Using the following command as superuser will make them modifiable/deleteable using the Mac Finder, even when the file is locked:
$ sudo chflags nouappnd <FILENAME>
