    I am using MP3Tag as of now. It works but I have a feeling files on Windows Media Player show a different tag (probably downloaded from the Internet) as against the information in the tags I created/edited. Wonder if that is default characteristics of WMP or weakness of MP3Tag. Needs to check out this tag editor.
