Windows 7: Music properties in Windows 7 not read

Music properties in Windows 7 not read

This is an odd problem, but apparently Windows 7 doesn't play kindly with my music files. I try to edit the properties and I get this error:

"An unexpected error is keeping you from applying properties to the file. if you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.
Error 0x8007000D: the data is invalid."

Down where it says the musical properties such as the artist, the song title, and everything now says: Specify an artist, Specify the track, etc etc.

It works perfectly fine in Windows Vista as I went to Vista to see which ones were like that, but all of them were perfectly fine. I don't understand what is causing this problem as I even reformatted and installed a later build.

I'm on Windows 7 RC 64 bit.

EDIT: Also, it seems like when I go to set permissions and such, it only goes through my iTunes folder and maybe 2-3 bands. I have about 122 musical folders so it should take a long time, but it's not.. I don't know if that's a problem as well or not.
