Windows 7: Error is keeping me from applying properties to files

Error is keeping me from applying properties to files

I was trying to write properties to some music files. I have done it before to the same file on vista, but forgot to save so im redoing it. When I attempt to save what I have just entered I get this:

"An unexpected error is keeping you from applying properties to the file. if you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

Error 0x8007000D: the data is invalid.

I have all updates, and the files are good.
Any help would be great.

BTW I can write info to most file but some give me this error. They were all off the same backup hard drive, transfered at the same time and I have writen properties to these files before.

I get this error as well when I try to edit metadata via the windows explorer toolbar. It only affects some (not all) songs, and the ones affected are missing all of their metadata. Strangely enough though, my music programs like winamp and songbird recognize all metadata for these files--the problem arises when I try to move these song files to my mp3 player, as it cannot find any artist or album information with which to organize the files.

As far as I know, all metadata was intact pre-windows 7.

Same exact problem, same exact error here. Can't determine causality. For example, one album has 12 tracks; 11 are fine with editable metadata but one does not allow any changes. So far the only solution I've found is to re-encode. I encode to FLAC (so as to not lose any MORE detail than needed) and then back to MP3. Then I can edit. There are some significant differences in the hex data of these files than of other MP3's, but so far I've not been able to determine the specific bits that are corrupt.
