I have some .MP3 files that I got off of the web (legally), but the filename is really long, and won't fit on the display screen of my MP3 player (an iRiver). I changed the filename from the original to a shorter one, but when I put it on the player, it changes back.

OS: Windows XP SP3
Player: iRiver

Does this happen if you try it on a different player? If not, it's the iRiver's issue and you can either reinstall for ask for support.
If the other players suffer from the issue try redownloading and renaming before you play it.
"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." - Bertrand Russell

I always edit the tags on mp3's

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
