BPM updates in beaTunes but not in iTunes for some songs

I am running into a problem where I have analyzed all my songs in beaTunes for BPM and for some songs, they appear in both beaTunes and iTunes but for others, they don't appear for both. Manually clicking on BPM in beaTunes and going into edit mode and then clicking enter does update the BPM then in iTunes, but after Analyzing the song, the problem songs don't update automatically. I could manually click on each BPM in beaTunes to have it update in iTunes, but for the rest of my collection that task is unfeasible.

I have uploaded a video to show what I mean. This only happens for certain songs, and I have already googled "bpm from beatunes not showing up in itunes" and looked around for various resources but none has helped. I am on the correct iTunes xml file and all the song files are not read-only (I made sure because I unchecked "read-only" for the parent folder of all the music files, yet the problem still occurs)

Here is the video: http://youtu.be/pb4of2M-9hI

If you need anything else, feel free to let me know. Thank you.

    Hi Kevin,

    I noticed that you are using a fairly old version of beaTunes.
    First thing to do, is to update to the most recent version, 3.5.7, from http://www.beatunes.com/beatunes-download.html
    Since you already own a 3.x license, the update is free.

    Does the problem persist with 3.5.7? If it does, please send me your logs. http://help.beatunes.com/kb/troubleshooting/where-are-the-beatunes-... tells you where to find them and how to send them (whole folder, zipped).

    Thank you,
