Windows 7: Error 8x8007000D: The data is invalid

Error 8x8007000D: The data is invalid

I am using Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 alongside on my notebook. They both have separate partitions, Windows 7 has an NTFS and Linux have az EXT4 one.
My music files are on the NTFS one, with the Windows 7.
When I use EasyTag on Ubuntu to edit the tags of the music files (.mp3 ones), than I can't see the tags in Windows 7, all fields are blank and if I try to edit any of the fields, I get the following errorcode when trying to apply the changes:

Please help me to find a solution, I have found nothing about this problem with Google...

I have only seen that error code once before, it had to do with the windows not being legitimate though. That doesn't seem to be the case here. It looks like for some reason Windows 7 will not read the data that was altered using ubuntu.

I think windows is throwing up that error code simply because it has no idea how to deal with it. The only thing I can think of is to go back into ubuntu use easytag to try and blank the fields, then see if windows will read them.
Support back and forth between linux and windows has always been a tad problematic.

I know that Windows don't like anything related to Linux (let's start with EXT4...) but I thought that at least the ID3 tags are something those are compatible.
Any ideas how to get things work?

I believe there is another app for ubuntu called cuetag, you could try it instead. I don't know if it will solve the problem or not though. My personal experience with ubuntu is not zero, but is limited.

I changed the settings of EasyTag to write ID3v1 tags and now Windows 7 is willing to read them, too.
Please help me, how can I put that check mark out to sign that problem is solved? Can't find it... :S
