Windows 7: Unable to add Mp3 tags in win7 properties menu

Unable to add Mp3 tags in win7 properties menu

Hello all,


For a long time now, when I retag my mp3 files using VLC or songbird, I realize that I cannot edit them in Win7 anymore. I can access the menu to do it (right-click -> properties) but all the fields are blanked off such that opening it in VLC, the song name will show but in Win7's file explorer; it will not show it.

Is there any way to rectify this? I did try saving them over using Adobe Audition (the only software I have that can do it) but that is a bit time consuming.

Here is picture if the menu in case I described it badly:




(As you can see, I can click on the fields, but cannot type in them)

Have you ever attempted to use a dedicated tag editor such as mp3tag?

I have not but I remembered that it used to work before (well in XP and Vista).

I can get a dedicated one, but I just wanted to know if there was any way to fix the problem with Win7 itself.
