Windows 7: 7 not recognizing ID3 Tags?

7 not recognizing ID3 Tags?

When I had Vista all my ID3 Tags were recognized. So before I did a clean install I backed up all my music to a separate partition. When i started playing music I saw many songs were missing artists, years, albums,etc. And when I try add them back it ides not let me. No error code or anything. It just takes it and nothing happens
