I found the most reliable way to fix tags is to fix the tags per your preferred method, then move the files out of your music folders, then rescan files. Once that's done, move them back into their original place and rescan again. It will probably mess up your playlists and such, but I've no other way to reliably get the system to see MP3 tag changes. You can also use the built-in tag editor as well, which seems to make changes to the database as well so you won't need to rescan.

This would probably the easiest (maybe not the fastest) solution, if you aren't a "tag-nerd". Means, you don't know and care what ID3-type is written, you're not interested in multitags and other specialities you could care about. I maybe work out well, but I don't see a reason to test it with my music and my very important metadata :-)
