I'm having some trouble with a couple folders in my music collection. I'm using W7 x64 ultimate, and for most of the folders the description tags are visible and sortable within explorer.exe. However, within some of my folders the files appear untagged to explorer and WMP, but the tags show up fine in programs such as WinAmp. When I right click on a file within these folders and go to properties/details, I am unable to edit any of the fields.

When I load the file in a program such as TagIT 3, the tags show up fine. I tried to use the Convert Tag from 2.4 to 2.3 function and it had no effect. Does anyone know how to force explorer (and Windows Media Player, which also can't see the tags), to read them?
