[Techpowerup.com] Windows 7 Beta Suffers from MP3 Corruption Bug Before it Even Reaches the Public
The first official public beta of Windows 7 launches today (Build 7000), but already there is a serious bug which can corrupt your mp3 files. Although it will not render them unplayable, it has the potential to cut off the first 2 or 3 seconds of the mp3 recording. According to a poster on the Neowin.net forums:
The problem only happens when you edit metadata on a certain class of MP3 file (a file with a header larger than 16KB). When the new metadata is written, it corrupts the beginning of the file. This can happen either when you edit the metadata from inside WMP or Explorer, or it can happen if you have WMP set to automatically fill in missing metadata using the online service and add the MP3 to your library. This problem is only present in the recently leaked build (7000)This same problem has been noted on Microsofts MSDN and TechNet websites when you click to download the beta:
To protect your MP3 filesAlthough there is no official support page for KB961367 yet, Microsoft have the updates ready for download.
You can download the 32-bit (x86) version here and the 64-bit (x64) version here.
