Default D2 refuses to recognize changes in id3 tags

I am using a free program called AudioShell to edit my id3 tags on my music collection. It generally works fine, and most of the time, the changes I make with it are recognized by the D2. But sometimes, apparently randomly, it won't recognize the changes, or it will recognize some and not others, with no apparent order to it.

A couple example problems:
I put about five albums by "Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds" on there. They showed as three separate artists, "Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds," "Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds," and "Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds." I deleted them off the d2, went in with AudioShell and made them all "Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds." I know I made them all exactly the same because I copied and pasted. Then I put them back on...and this time, the same three artists show up, but with different albums under in, it "took" for some of them, but not others! Wtf?!

Same basic thing with "The Pineapple Thief." In this case, some songs on the same album appear as "The Pineapple Thief" and others as "Pineapple Thief"! And this happened to an album that I ripped from the CD, so I KNOW the id3 tags were all made at the same time, with the same program....

And then another album I put on there just straight up never shows up, not under any artist, not under the list of albums and none of the individual tracks are in the track list...

Is this just a result of the id3 editor I'm using not meshing with the d2's interface? Or what the heck else could explain this?
