    As far as I know you're never going to be able to convert an m3u file to an
    mp3 file. That's because an m3u file isn't an audio file, it simply contains
    a playlist. It's probably just a simple text file that points to the audio
    files in a playlist. If you want to find the audio file... I'm not sure if
    this will work because different players may have different formats for their
    m3u files... try opening up the file in textpad. It may have the names and
    locations of the actual audio files that you want to convert.
