Windows Media Player 12 isn't updating metadata in music folder

Hello,
Windows Media Player 12 isn't updating my metadata for my music files in my music library. I click "apply media information changes", and it sits and works for a while, then says it's done. But none of my music files have been updated with the changes I made in WMP. I know for a fact that you can make WMP 12 update the tags in your mp3s by applying media changes, and I know that there is a set of hoops you have to jump through regarding permissions and such, to make WMP actually do what it says its doing. But I forget the steps needed to do that, and I can't find the information I used last time to get it to work.

"write media information to files" is checked in the options menu, and my music folder is set up with full read/write permission given to the WMP network service, as well as all users and system.

I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thanks for your help!
