    I edit the properties of my mp3 files frequetnly in Media Library, most often
    the year and album title, however although the changed year will appear
    inside Windows Media Player, if I look up the same file in Windows Explorer
    and enable year column the newly added information will not appear or old one
    will still be displayed. This happens rarely, but still often enough that I
    noticed it. Any ideas why is that?

    Unless you use Advanced Tag Editor, metadata edits are queued in the
    background and may take a bit to apply. You can use WMP's Tools:Apply Media
    Information to force the application. Does that resolve this, or is the
    file simply never editable?
