For some reason I'm thinking you want to do this to the actual mp3 and not a file... I'm not sure if you can even do that with the registry.

If you right click the file it displays information i want to change, is that in the registry?

I am pretty sure you could do it with some tricks. I have been figuring a way to do it myself. You simply have to edit the ID3 tags where they are stored usually in the first line or two of an mp3 file and are separated by weird hex characters. I have been trying to create a script to batch edit my id3 tags. I will post the script in scripts and scraps when i figure it out. It isn't impossible, just very complicated and confusing. :P

It would be stored somewhere in the beginning of the file(or the end). I can't say because everything is in hex code and i can't read hex code.

Tag is a command-line ID3 editor - maybe you could use this programmatically in AutoIt?
