Updating Mp3 tags error?

When I try to update the tags of my mp3's it gives my an "info updating error" that says "error updating file: <file location>"

It lets me edit the tags if I uncheck the box that says "Update file tags if supported by the tagging format," but does this mean that it only changes it on Winamp and not the file itself? If so, how to fix this to where it edits the info on the actual file?

Are the files in the folders that Winamp 'thinks' they are in (iow, have they been moved since they were added to the library database)? Is the 'read only' attribute enabled on these files?

oh. yeah. They were set to read-only. I changed that, and it worked! Thanks
