    I just recently started messing with album art and trying to organize my mp3
    music files. I'm having a problem that when I update a specific song by
    pasteing art, it is somehow updating multiple files. There is probably
    something I am doing wrong but can find nothing to clarify how this occurs.
    It seems that this will also edit the album title and update each line item I
    have done during that session. Has anyone any idea as to what I might be
    doing wrong?

    When it's updating multiple files, are these all files (tracks) of the
    same album? If that's the case, then there's not much that can be done
    about this, except for removing some internal tags with a tool like Mp3tag.

    If they aren't files of the same album, perhaps they are all located in
    the same folder? Try moving some of them to a different folder and see
    if that helps.

    BTW, what exactly do you mean with "update each line item I have done
    during that session"?

    Regards

    Thank you for your time in trying to help with this. I'm not sure how to
    explain exactly. I'm not on my computer daily and this problem has proven so
    irritating it's makes me crazy. An example. I display my library by Artist.
    This gives me a display with the artist name and an album picture (if only
    one song) or a faned display in the event of multiple songs on multiple
    albums. If I spot an error, I go into the advanced tag editor, correcting the
    title, artist or art, as need be apply and exit. What I've found is that
    seemingly unrelated songs are updated. These have now multiplied my problem.

    You're saying that unrelated songs are updated, so they all aren't or
    weren't part of the same album? Which fields (title, artist...) of the
    unrelated songs get updated?

    Does the same thing happen when you don't use the Advanced Tag Editor,
    i.e. when you right-click a song's field and select Edit?

    If you go to WMP's Options, Library, and uncheck "Retrieve additional
    information from the Internet", does that help?

    Regards

    Tim, Thanks again for your time in replying. Short story is I'm recovering
    from some surgery and not been on the computer. I've read your responces and
    am in the process of trying to check what you've suggested. I'm not sure how
    long it will take or the time it will take me to try and narrow down some
    insight. I have tried updating individual lines via the "edit" function line
    by line. My files are all messed up with wrong titles, artists and album
    titles (as well as art). I've also found that apparently, my cd burner has
    problems (having just read some posts on the HP site. Again, thank you. I
    just don't want to seem ungrateful for your time in helping..
