    I want to edit the artist of this song, album, and comments but iTunes(10.5b 43) won't let me. Is there a way to edit this information?

    Is it an MP3? Locked? Open cmd+i on the file from Finder.

    It does this for me too. What you need to do is play the song (you don't even need to play it all the way through, it just needs to played at all). Quit iTunes. Then, relaunch. That seems to fix the editing issue for THAT song. It's a pretty big bug, though, so hopefully it'll get fixed soon.

    Playing all of the songs that I have problems editing the comment, and then shutting down iTunes didn't work. Shutting down my computer didn't help either.

    Some of these songs had their comments changed this fall - and I can't edit the comments now.

    I don't know what is the difference between these songs and songs that I *can* edit the comments for.

    The .mp3s are not locked.
