Windows 7: Can't edit mp3 tags in explorer pane

Can't edit mp3 tags in explorer pane

I can't enter the tags and all I have is the title of the mp3 showing. Something makes me think it has to do with the tag editor I used and maybe not though. I'm using Win7 Home premium. It seems like there is something in the registry blocking modification. I hate to lose all the mp3s that want let me edit.

I have checked full control of the files under my user name.

I don't know about the error dialog, but as far as I know, you can't modify the tag info with Explorer, regardless of which version of W7 is used. However, you should be able to edit it with some third party software. I know that Creative's MediaSource player can do this, so I'm sure that others can also. How those changes might appear in Explorer, I don't know.

Yes you can...I am talking about Windows Explorer folder view. At the bottom you can enter tag information for all your mp3's. Most of mine I can edit I just have a few in each folder that want cooperate. I used ID3-TagIT3 to enter data and I think that is what may have corrupted my files. I made them Ver. 2.3 which should have been O.K. But when I tried to get Windows Media player 12 to import them I just got a bunch of unknown albums.
