  1. Hello....I would greatly appreciate help before I commit myself to the
    nuthouse. I running Windows XP, service pack 2, Windows Media Player 10.
    Everything updated, everything fast, everything good...EXCEPT music file
    folder properties. This happened before and I was able to fix, but am pulling
    my hair out now trying to remember how to do it...it's been 3 days and I've
    given up. Here's the problem: Before (and on my laptop which has all the same
    files (music) as my desktop)...I could go to the "My Music" file...click on a
    file (we'll say a AC/DC song that I ripped to my computer from the actual
    CD)...right click that file, click properties, click summary and then have
    tons of information to edit (in the advanced part). Things like Music (with
    artist, album title, etc.)...Description...Origin...and Audio (with all of
    the bit rates channels and etc.). Now there is only the Description area with
    Title and Comments as subsections. Everything is available for the exact same
    file on my laptop...but I am limited on the desktop and it is extremely
    frustrating because that is the File Name and using Advanced Tag Editor in
    Windows Media 10 does not change it in the file. Plus...I shouldn't have
    to...it was working great, and then I did something...who knows. Oh yeah...I
    also tried sharing a music file from my laptop (that has all of the
    properties available) with my desktop. The desktop was able to take the
    file...but without all of the customizable properties! ARRRRGHHHHHHH!!!!!! So
    basically I have some setting somewhere on my desktop that I don't want...and
    I don't know how to do it. I am so grateful for any and all information that
    anyone can supply to me. I thank you in advance...take care. Mike
