change an M3U into a direct file.

  1. Ok, I was told the M3U file was not a direct file so that's why it can't be
    imported. I understand that but how do you change it to make it a direct
    file? It's in my music folder except when I go to import to Movie Maker then
    it's gone and I have to select all files to even see it on the list. I can
    play it everywhere I've saved it to but I just cant change it over. Please
    tell me how to do that. Thanks!

    What do you mean 'change it over'?

    M3U files are playlists for Media Player / Winamp etc and I don't think
    Movie Maker can import them.

    Assume a playlist M3U file is a list of 3 MP3 music files.... then instead
    of trying to import the M3U file into Movie Maker, you need to go and find
    each of the 3 MP3 files and import them directly.
