EDIT: Just checked, Windows Explorer also won't let me edit the file information. I could in Windows 7.
Its because you always relied on UAC being disabled. You should fix your directory security rights rather than fully disabling UAC. Odds are your actual problem is that your user doesn't actually have full access to the directory holding your media. If you rely on the Administrators group to gain access to folders, UAC elevation is required before the group grants any rights to its members.
To fix your directory access level: Get properties on the root folder of your media directory, go to the security tab, and add “everyone” granting “full control”. If you reset inheritance at the same time it should resolve the problem. You can also disable security inheritance on this folder if it’s not part of Windows so the only group is Everyone.
Security rights changes like this will exist beyond one install of Windows, and can move with the folder, but will not survive being merged with another folder or if the folder is duplicated through Explorer. If you have a drive dedicated to data storage, you can grant Everyone full control at the drive level instead.
