    I regularly distribute audio files of which I am the author. I am getting
    feedback from users of my audio files saying that they cannot burn the audio
    (coming from an M3U file) because of a messag stating that they do not have
    the media rights. How can I give them the rights since I own the original?

    Make sure you send the files in MP3 format and not WMA.

  3. There's some mistake here. AN M3U file is a playlist not a media file.

    Assuming you have created the files as WMA and not MP3 files, do you
    remember applying DRM to the files ? Or if you created the files on a
    CD, and ripped the CD to create WMA files, check in Tools -> Options
    -> Copy Music to see if you set "copy protect music" (which will only
    allow your computer to play the files)

    Best plan is to convert them to MP3 so they can be played on multiple
    devices, or WMA lossless if you want the recipients to retain complete
    fidelity with smaller file sizes than the uncompressed audio.
