From time to time for the last few years about 100-200 of my MP3s get randomly corrupted metadata and I have no idea what is causing it. Could it be Windows 7, foobar2000, or what?
I guess unchecking "Update music files by retrieving media info from the Internet" checkbox can fix that (don't recall other options that mention writing to media files), it's in "Options-Privacy" tab.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows...ws-Media-Player
Now I'm seriously considering switching my personal collection back to old good APE tags (that MS software doesn't recognize) or using another format than MP3 (again something that MS doesn't support).
I would imagine that, by definition, read-only files would not be able to be altered.
