    I am trying to help my sister who recently got a new computer with Vista. it
    came with windows media player 11 BUT she is trying to burn a cd with audio
    files on it that will play in her cd player (does not have mp3 player
    capabilites) but all her music on her computer is in wma or mp3 format. How
    would we go about changing them from wma and mp3 to audio so it will work in
    her cd player?

    In windows media player, create a play list with the desired songs, then
    select burn.
    It should default to 'Audio CD' which is what you want. If it is burning to
    'Data CD or DVD' you must change it.
    (the little arrow under the burn button).

    'Audio CD' should play fine on a regular CD player, some do not like RW CD's
    however (esp if older)

    ========================
    Are you saying you cannot burn
    a music CD with WMP11?

    Maybe the following link will offer
    some ideas:

    YES that is the process we are taking and it is on the CD although it stays
    in MP3 format therefore it does not want to read in an older CD player that
    does not have MP3 capabilites. which that same cd player has read cds that i
    had burned off my computer. which my computer gives us the option of
    converting the file from mp3 to audio. i know under the burn tab it says to
    either audio or data dvd BUT even on the audio option it will still not play
    when it is burned off the WMP11.

    ==============================
    If you follow steps in the article,
    the finished CD should have files
    with the .cda extension. If the .cda
    files are not there...I have no idea
    what the problem is.

    Do you mean convert a music CD to mp3 files? Use Windows Media Player and
    click on Rip.
