Hi! This is just a small ususual problem that I have recently encountered for the past 2 or so days.


Normally, whenever I right click a mp3[or any file for that matter], then click "properties", then click the "summary tab", then finally I click the "advanced>>" button, I am entitled to edit a multitude of things on that mp3. Now, for some reason I can only edit three things. I've uploaded a picture of what it looks like when I try to edit my music files. I also added the picture as an attachment in case the host site goes down.

Also my computer is working just fine aside from this little problem. Please :tazz: !

Ok, im not sure if im 100% :tazz: correct but, i assume that the file is a music file. Make sure that the "Read Only" is not selected, i hope this helped, please tel me if it did. that is the only solution i can think of. Goodluck

It sounds like the files may not be associated with a player anymore... Please do the following. Open windows explorer..then click Tools/Folder Options..
Click on File Types and scroll down to MP3 and see what the description says about this extension....


To reassociate this with your media player..click change then select the program you play the MP3s with.

^^^The only thing significant that I have done is add a codec pack to my computer. It's called the defiler pack. I thought maybe my problem resulted because of this codec pack, so I uninstalled it, but my problem still remained........ The pack I downloaded is located on this site
