Problem writing ID3 tags

    When editing ID3 tags for MP3 files, I have no problems editing files on my
    internal C: , but I cannot edit them on my external I: .

    I use Windows Media Player 11, but also Ultra Tag Editor and TagScanner to
    edit tags. Tagscanner does not even let me change ID3 tags for these files,
    and MediaMonkey does but then "forgets" the changes if I switch folders then
    go back to that folder.

    The files are not read-only and I dont think there are any file permission
    issues. Any ideas what may be causing this ?

    And, if I move the album to my C:, then move it back to I:, I can then edit
    the ID3 !!

  5. Have you examined effective permissions before and after moving a
    file/album?

    Right click a file or folder. Choose
    Properties->Security->Advanced->Effective Permissions.

    TOP NOTCH GUYS!! !

    You fixed the problem. For some reason, permissions such as write were not
    enabled (despite being enabled on other drives, and despite me being the
    only user on the system).

    Thanks !
