Boxes, when editing .mp3 tags (properties)

When I edit .mp3 tags (properties), I usually end up with little square boxes after the Artist Name. Sometimes I get a box for every tag I edited. What causes that?

I can get rid of them, by re-editing the Artist Name and deleteing the boxes. What a Pain!!!

Any Ideas?

Sounds like your tag editor is buggy. Try others?

Re: Buggy

It happens with XP Pro SP3 MCE 2005 & Win7 Ultimate 64bit on 2 different computers.

I'm editing the .mp3 properties using Windows Explorer, so doubtful both Windows Exploders are Buggy.

But you just proved it.

You proved them to be buggy. You have a choice of calling Microsoft or using something that you find works.
