A folder can not be renamed, if a video is selected. It is evident already reserved by the player. Only when you put your mark on a photo, the folder will be renamed. This is a bug.

Ein Ordner kann nicht umbenannt werden, wenn ein Video markiert ist. Es wird offensichtlich schon vom Player reserviert. Erst wenn man die Markierung auf ein Foto legt, kann der Ordner umbenannt werden. Das ist ein Bug.

Might well be a design limitation.

A workaround is to go to Grid mode.

When renaming a Windows folder in Lightroom 4.1 I have found that I receive an error message that "The folder could not be renamed or moved" IF a video is selected within the folder. However, if I select a picture instead the folder can be renamed as normal.

This is a repeatable error on all my folders and as such I would consider it a bug.

Relevant debug details - Videos and pictures are from a Canon 5D Mark II directly imported into Lightroom with added metadata and location information (all using Lightroom). Platform is Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit.
