Default Editing Tags for Files Already On Pilot?

So, as I've said before, I still prefer iTunes as my MP3 player/library organizer. I'm slowly moving away from it for obvious reasons, but that's all besides the point. One thing that I like about it is that it isn't case sensitive when you're browsing your music. For instance, Outkast is the same as OutKast. However, the Pilot treats the two as separate artists. (I haven't decided whether I like that or not. On one hand, it's the same group regardless of what's capitalized. On the other hand, all of my music should be consistent on my computer in the first place.)

What I don't like is that when I hook up the player to my computer in media mode, I can't alter the file properties/tags. When I switch to file and folder mode, it allows to me think I'm changing the tags, but it's not really changing them. The Pilot reflects no changes.

The files aren't "Locked" in the Properties. They are, however, showing up as "Archived" or "Archives". I can't remember. What gives?

Am I really expected to remove the files from my Pilot, fix them on my computer, and then resync them? That just doesn't seem right to me.

If the BestBuy bundled software can do it, I'll use that for now, but I think it's kind of weird/crappy that I can't change the files on the player with Windows Explorer/Media Monkey/WMP. It's showing up as a disk drive. Why doesn't it act like one?
