I can't upload from my laptop because the upload program I have isn't compatible with my OS, don't know why that is. I tried to download the mp3 on this computer (a cybercafe near my apartment) and was able to make mp3 lower case but it won't let me change the ID metadata :evil: . Odd, as I don't remember saving the file as write-protected.
I'll put my tech support hat on for a moment :) You need to provide details about issues like this. Just saying "I can't" or "It won't let me" does not cut it. Exact error messages and screenshots are in order.

I think this certainly sounds more confident now. More could be made of it, but it's good as it is.

Not sure what your problem is with adding ID3 tags. Windows Media Player and iTunes can do it, and there are several free ID3 tag editors available on the web (just Google for free ID3 tag editors). If you have a specific issue, please post the details. The devil is in the details, is one of my favourite sayings.

Thanks, Monica. Wonder how you were able to edit the ID tag info? It just gave me option to "remove properties and personal information" but didn't allow me to edit it.


I am running Windows 7 on my home computer. In order to display my suffix's (which I could then edit), I did the following:

1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Personalization, and then click Folder Options.

2. Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:

To hide file extensions, select the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

To display file extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.

After I clicked the OK tab, the upper-case .MP3 that was showing in your file, automatically turned into a .mp3 (lower-case).

I use XP at home but have Windows 7 Professional here at work. In the control Panel there is no such item called "Appearance and Personalization". The settings must be made on your current folder in Windows Explorer, then (if you wish) apply it to all folders. Microsoft is great at putting things in different places depending on their current mood.

Nice, but this would not convince me it has indeed changed the name on disk. To be sure, better to rename to another suffix, then rename back.

If I had not somehow lost the source code of my upload program, I could change it to convert uppercase to lowercase and avoid this once and for all. I'll see if maybe I had the good sense to put a backup copy on the server.

Re: the changing the tags on a public computer, I downloaded the file first. Second I right clicked and got to the properties box. Third I scrolled to the details tab, and I tried to click on the Name, Subtitle, etc. I didn't budge, meaning highlight the field in blue allowing me to edit the text. I didn't try Windows Media Player.
