Windows 7 Beta - Fix for MP3 corruption

If you install Windows 7 Beta and plan listening to some MP3 with Windows Media Player 12, make sure you download and install the hotfix (KB961367) that is available from MSDN Subscribers and TechNet Downloads.  Not sure if it's available elsewhere.

This will fix a problem where approximately 2-3 seconds will get shaved off the beginning of MP3s if you have set your Windows Media Player 12 settings to retrieve information from the internet and update files.

Thanks, I needed to hear that. I was trying to figure out what the problem was.

I have a different issue with MP3s, WMP12 doesn't know how to tag them? It found all my WMAs but all my MP3s it didn't tag?
