Got this from WMP9 Help:
Changes made to files when media information is updated
When you copy tracks from audio CDs or when you copy other types of music files to Media Library, the Player automatically obtains related media information if the Update my music files (WMA and MP3 files) by retrieving missing media information from the Internet check box is selected and your computer is connected to the Internet.
You can also manually add and edit media information.
Media information is stored in both the files and the Media Library database.
When the Player automatically retrieves media information, it may make the following changes to your files:
By default, missing media information is appended to any existing media information in your audio files.
Media information is added to the files in the form of tags. For example, the Player may add the following tag to an audio file: <artist name=Beethoven>.
Album art is added to files and music folders in your My Music folder.
The date modified is changed when media information is edited or obtained.
In addition, if the Rename and rearrange music using media information check box is selected, changes to media information in your files may cause the files to be moved to another location in Media Library and to another location in the folder to which the files were copied.
Might have something to do with it.
