I want to rate media in my library but those ratings are being applied only partially to my files themselves.

Please note that I want to do this for all kinds of media, not only music.

Oh, the ratings are stored in the metadata properties, not the ID3 tag, my bad... What do you mean by partially? Do some files not work or do files of a specific type not work? – Tom Wijsman Mar 30 '11 at 0:32
i have only tried it with movies. i cannot recognise any pattern. – elluca Mar 31 '11 at 7:22

Press ALT, then go to Tools > Options > Library.

How is the bottom option set there? Have you tried toggling that setting?
