Windows 7: Synchronize data between iTunes and Zune

Synchronize data between iTunes and Zune

I use iTunes primarily for my music listening. All my music has been arranged, album sort titles changed to place albums where I want them, etc, and all my ID3 tags are 2.2, as it seems that that version is the only version where all my changed information and album art will stay in place.

Then there are Zune and WMP. With those two programs, the changes in iTunes are never acknowledged.
For example, I have soundtracks for all three Raimi Spider-Man movies, as well as The Amazing Spider-Man. I changed the sort title for TASM in iTunes to "Spider-Man 4", so it would show up right after the Raimi trilogy, rather than at the beginning of cover flow for "A". Zune and WMP will just place TASM at the beginning anyway.

If on Zune I try to change the settings for an album's sort title, it will then show up in the new order in that program, after Spider-Man 3, but going into iTunes, I now see that TASM has changed its ID3 tags to 2.3, which throws everything out of order and deletes my album art and information.

Is there any sort of way to adjust settings on WMP and/or Zune so they reflect the ID3 tags and info changes done in iTunes, so that when I want to use one of those two programs, my entire music library will show up identically everywhere?

It's a total OCD sort of question, but I'd appreciate any answers.
