Windows 7: Can't make changes to Audio (mp3) Files

Can't make changes to Audio (mp3) Files

Hey guys.

My problem is this: I can edit audio files (ie. Add artists, titles, genres etc) but the changes don't save. I have tried clicking Apply and then Ok and no luck. It just reverts back to what it was previously.

For example, if the artist said muse and I changed it to Muse, clicking Apply and then Ok wouldn't work. I would go back and find the artist wuld say muse.

I'm stumped. I am an Administrator with full privileges and if I use another program like iTunes to edit my files, the changes stick.

Anyone got any ideas I can try?

Thanks.

Try playing with the 'properties' - 'security' tab settings.. i.e. advanced / change permissions ....etc
It sucks I know..!

Hey.

Thanks for the reply.

Nope. No success there. I am a full administrator and can access the file.

Any other ideas?

I always use another application to fix mine.....usually one called mp3tag. Works like a charm, once you figure out what you're doing with it.

OK, try this :
Go to 'properties' of you MP3 file, 'details' tab then 'Remove properties and personal info. " low on the window..
Try the changes here.. click OK to exit the properties ,then open it again and go to 'details' to see if u can now make the changes ..It should work as it worked for me..

P.S. 'Read-only' box should be unchecked, is it ?

Hey all.

Thanks for the replies.

The box Read Only is unchecked. I tried your solutions Ahmed with no success. Removing the properties doesn't work as they are still present in the file.

I would prefer to not have to use a third party program, if that is possible. On XP I never had this problem. > . >
