Windows 7: Problem adding video information on some files

Problem adding video information on some files

Hey there folks, I'm having one of those problems that is really frustrating and it's really starting to irritate me. So I have a bunch of videos on my computer, and I want to add some basic information for them, such as title, album information, and date. I can easily add the title and album information, but when it comes to the date (which I just want to be the year which the media was made in) it hardly ever works. Some files I can simply just right click on it, go to properties, click the detail tab and enter the year where it says media.

On some files, I can get to the same exact spot where it says Media, but it wont let me edit anything on it

And on some files, it doesnt even show that part, it just shows some other random information

Does anyone know a way to fix this so that I can put a year for all my videos? I want this so that I can just sort all my videos by the year in which it was created.
