Can changes to Media information in Media Player Library synced to the music source file?

Original Title: Window 7 and WMP version 12

I am using Windows 7 with the latest Version 12 WMedia Player.  As I have updated my music library on WMP, I would like this update (changes to title songs, Genre etc) to be updated or synced to the Music library souce file.  I have tried selecting and droping from WMP to Music but this does not work.  Please help.
