  • Using IShellItem2 and the shell property system allows you to edit the metadata of most media files, including MP3 and WMA.  There would need to be some interop/pinvoke code to do this from .NET however.  I am not familiar with any media metadata handling in .NET.

  • Windows Media Format SDK includes C sharp sample: Managed/MetadataEdit: "This C# application can be used to view and edit metadata from Windows Media files."... that includes Mp3 too (lucky us). Does this help?

  • There's also the Windows API Code Pack, which provides direct .NET interfaces for most metadata through the Shell Property System.
