Windows 7: WMP12 Albums Revert To Original

WMP12 Albums Revert To Original

This is indeed a strange 1...

I have recently ripped my entire Bonkers collection to MP3 (yeah I know but I like them ). Only issue is that the first album is catalogued correctly from data taken from the 'Find album online' selection. Now, when I try to do the 3rd album I go to the online finder and it finds 100% of the correct data and saves it...

Seconds later, it reverts back to it original state (appart from 1 track) even if I 'Apply Media information changes' before this time...

All of the files are 'Owned' by me and none are read only. Any ideas why this would happen?

Note   Note
The album in question is Bonkers, Vol. 3: A Journey into Madness Disc 1

It's worth noting that i've disabled 'Automatic retrieval of information' so it shoudn't be getting anything off the net automatically

This is indeed a strange issue. I notice that the album name contains the "disc #" monstrosity that I personally always despised using in tags, instead of enlisting disk numbers in proper tags.

Can you tell us which software you used to rip the disk in question and which tag format was written to the files?
