I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64-Bit. I have some avi files with messy names, so I renamed them to something more manageable. No problem, when I play them in windows media player it shows the new name in the list pane (on the right). The problem happens when I move the files (before renaming) to a shared folder for streaming to my ps3/xbox 360. Once they have been put in that folder it's like there is some sort of memory on the original file name. I can rename the file to whatever I want, and that name stays, but then when I play it in windows media player or on the ps3/xbox 360 it shows the original (messy) file name. The only solution I have been able to find is to rename the files first, and then drop them into my shared folder. Once they are in the shared folder it is the point of no return and the name they have is the name they keep. I have tried "abcAVI Tag Editor" and that is showing the file name as the title name. So the original file name doesn't appear to be trapped in the tag. I tried moving the files out of the shared folder then renaming.. it worked until I put them back in the shared folder, then it's back to the original name. Do I just need to refresh the shared folder somehow? Any help would be great. Please and thank you.
