    I'm really hoping that someone here can help as I have an issue that is
    driving me crazy.

    I'm currently using WMP 11 and attempting to get it to read my MP3 files
    into the library but it will not read the ID3 tags on the files and imports
    everything into the library as "unknown".

    I have tried rebuilding a new machine and get the same issue.

    I have worked through and know that the ID 3 tags are there on the files
    (ID3v2.3) and that these can be read in winamp and Itunes (tested on other
    PC's) as well as in WMP11 (on my colleagues PC's).

    This also happens if I try to use WMP to rip CD's, whilst it finds the info
    from the online DB it does not populate of write the Tag info.

    I have tried installing a fresh copy of WMP and also deleted and re-created
    the WMP DB but this has not helped.

    Has anyone seen this before or can give me any pointers?
