this is a bit on the obscure side so any help is greatly appreciated... i just recently reformatted my computer to Windows XP (i had Xp last time) and i notice a difference in audio file 'properties' options. i don't know if it's a driver issue or not. before i reformatted when i right-clicked a wav or mp3 file and clicked properties, the general and summary tab would pop up, i could then edit the song title, year, artist, etc. now the summary tab only displays title and sometimes it doesnt even show the summary tab just the general tab.

any insight? kind of a weird issue but deeply important to my file maintenance system

much appreciated

Did you do a clean install or simply repair the previous installation of Windows XP?

Can you update your Audio Drivers to the latest version and see if that fixes things?
