Windows 7: Find Album Info and Metadata Formatting issues

Find Album Info and Metadata Formatting issues

In past versions of WMP (9-11), I've relied heavily upon the Find Album Info feature supply correct information regarding song titles, contributing artists, years released, etc. Part of what I liked about it was that the data provided by AMG was consistent insofar as that it used the same 'rules' for capitalization, punctuation, and the like. It's probably me being a.r., but it annoys me slightly when I've got some titles in ALL CAPS, some with The First Letter Of Every Word Capitalized, and some in all lower-case (AMG, for the record, seems to capitalize every word, save for most prepositions and words like "and" and "the," unless any are the first or last word the phrase).

At any rate, in the past, I've been able to use Find Album Info pretty reliably for editing the metadata. Unfortunately, that's not the case with WMP12. In some cases, I've been able to get the changes to 'stick' by running the function two, three, even four times. Sometimes, even that doesn't work, and the genre or title or whatever reverts back to its initial form after toying with me in the new form for a few seconds. So far as I know, I've got all the features set the same as I did with WMP11, and yet I never had this problem then. Is anyone else aware of this problem, and, more importantly, are there any steps I can take to correct it?
