If you right click one of your DivX AVI files
and choose...Properties / Summary tab /
Simple or Advanced button...you will notice
you cannot enter information the way you
can on a JPEG (for example).
IOW...there is no way for Windows to 'write
back' to the .avi file. Your tags will be archived
in the Pictures.pd4 file so if you delete or
rename the .pd4 file...your tags are gone.
