With correctly filled MP3 tags all my music is from Unknown artist in Windows 8 RTM music app

All of my mp3s have the information on the artist, album and title, but in Windows 8 (RTM, 90 days evaluation version) music app all of them are from Unknown artist with unknown title and unknown album. In Windows Media Player, all of these informations are displayed correctly. The files are the same, and ID3 tags worked well in both W8 Consumer Preview and Release Preview as well. Now, only 4 of my files look correct in music app, and I don't know why exactly these 4.

Can anyone help me about this problem?

Answer
I have solved the problem doing the following:

Right click on the folder --> Properties --> Advanced --> Check the first two checkboxes (I don't know if checking only the Index one does the trick, I checked both)

I went back to the Music app, and now it is indexing all music fine.

I am experiencing this same issue with a folder in my SkyDrive folder.  Interestingly, when I select Play from Music Tools in the ribbon in File Explorer, the music will start playing in the Music app with the correct ID3 tag info.
