    Save the iTunes playlist as an m3u file. If you then put this file in
    the Music folder, it should get picked up by WMP.

    I assume you are referring to "export" function, which in iTunes only allows
    ..xml and .txt formats. Can't find a way in iTunes to save as .m3u. I was able
    to convert the .txt to an Excel file if that is any help. Do you have another
    clue?
    Thanks

    I had same problem also and have just sorted it.
    Copy your files (songs) to "My Music" folder. Then go to internet and put
    in your search engine the words ".m4a". When I did this it gave various
    websites who provide Converters. The one I chose was "Switch Sound File
    Converter" provided by NCH Software. It allows you to download free. Its
    simple to use. Just add the list of files you wish to convert, choose the
    "m3u" option and press "Convert" button. By doing this it lets you store the
    music in Windows Media Player and it plays them also. They were stored in
    "Recently Added" after I had converted my files (songs).
    Hope it works for you too.

    Didn't you see my previous post? The first result when searching for
    "itunes m3u" is http://www.ericdaugherty.com/dev/itunesexport , which
    looks like it will do exactly what you want. Using a format converter
    for this seems a bit overkill to me...
