Windows 7 Search No Longer Searching Mp3 Tags

Hi everyone,

The new Windows search in 7 is horrible. Can someone tell me how to search the inside "metadata" of mp3's? Ridiculous to now have to add search variables and not be able to just turn the option on as XP.

Does anyone have an alternative by any chance? I have been using "Everything" search which is lightining fast for searched unlike Windows 7.

Just to expand. Using exact field names works kind:=music comment:***** extra.

Would still be interesting in having something easier to search multiple fields in mp3 files.
