I'm using Windows 7 on an HTPC as TV, PVR, DVD player. This really is the best thing MS have done in a looong time.

One issue though - I decided to try using it for music as well, potentially replacing my squeezebox. I loaded my music but some tracks seem to have had the tag info stripped off.

I had the MP3's sitting on a FAT32 partition on my laptop, copied them to an external USB drive (NTFS), then loaded them to the Win7 box. Out of several GB's of music 6 tracks have lost the tag info. Gone. Also when I tried re-adding it using both Win Explorer and also MP3Tag the media center library fails to pick it up. Still says I have 6 tracks with no genre, name or artist.

I will try re-transfering just these tracks, but does anyone have any clues as to what has happened here? I read about some early issues they had with MP3 corruption, but that was actual audiocontent, not tags.

Common problem when the mp3 file is corrupt. At least that's what I have found.
