  • Get "access denied" when I try to change tags

    Got a new computer recently and I have to change some of mp3 files got wrong tags now. Can't change anything on them now. I'm adminstrator on the computer and have change so what I got all the rights to change a file in the music folder. I'm running windows 7 64 bit. Anyone got any solution?

  • Remove read only bit... maybe you've to take ownership before

    I had the same problem after replacing my main OS from XP to 7. Music on my external HDD went all read only because folder belonged to my previous username which had different SID, privileges and stuff. What's more, attributes on files were stuck.

    Workaround:
    1. Log in as an admin
    2. Take ownership of your music folder / files
    3. Grant your username needed permissions to change file attributes
    4. Delete old usernames/groups/stuff [files can still store them in permissions]
