ID3 Tags Missing from WMP11 Library

    Platform: Win XP (SP3)
    WMP 11.0.5721.5268


    Problem:
    I have an MP3 file with ID3v2 tag metadata, such as artist, composer, etc.
    The track is playable and displays ID3v2 metadata in WMP10, iTunes and Winamp
    successfully. Now, in WMP11, just playing the track (Steps to reproduce: in
    File Explorer, right click on the track, choose “Open With WMPâ€. In WMP11,
    click "Now Playing" to view the metadata) displays ID3v2 metadata
    successfully. However, when I try to add the track to WMP11 Library all
    ID3v2 metadata (album name, artist, composer, etc.) disappears, only the
    track title remains.

    Has anyone encountered this problem?

    Thanks,
    Dina.

    As far as I know, WMP11 supports ID3v2.2
    http://thewelltemperedcomputer.com/SW/WMP/WMP_ID3.htm

    You might try a tool like MP3Tag
    Inspect the tags maybe you see something strange
    It also has an option to read ID3v2 and write them to ID3v3

    Found solution here http://forums.techarena.in/media-player/906600.htm

    Sometimes McAfee includes WMP in its 'Application Policy'. This results in
    preventing MP3 tags from being read/displayed in order to protect against
    possible malicious executables.
