Windows 7: Recorded Programs - Metadata Problem

Recorded Programs - Metadata Problem

Like many users, I archive my favorite shows/movies by removing the commercials and then renaming the title to "Archived TV" so that the content shows up in a specific folder. I have been doing it this way for years without issue. However with Windows 7, the behavior seems eratic and random. Example: I edited two recorded programs yesterday then renamed both the titles to "Archived TV" and now one shows up in the correct "Archived TV" folder, while the other shows another "Archived TV" folder all by itself?

It's driving me crazy as everything is now scattered into two different folders...

Your help is greatly apprecaited!

Can you post a screenshot of WMC and your Video folders?
Have you checked event viewer for any error messages?

WMP metadata problem
Has anyone had trouble lately with getting correct metadata? Just got T.I.'s new album and after getting album info, there are no contributing artists. I have noticed over the past month, it seems every CD is doing this. Kanye West's new album did, so did The Black Eyed Peas, Kid Rock, and Taylor...

Can FLAC hold metadata? As in Album Art, Artist, Album, Compositor etc. ? I just ripped all my Linkin Park CD-s and they sound beautiful in FLAC, much better than MP3, but I can't seem to add any metadata to my files... Is there any plugin/add-on for Media Player to be able to read/write the...
