WMP 10 conversion to CDA format for burning CD fails

    When burning a CD from a licenced WMD file (or from a bunch of licenced WMA
    files), the conversion from wma to cda creates files that are 1k in size
    (instead of 40 or 50 Mb). The actual burning is fine, but a CD of 1k CDA
    files is pretty useless!

    This worked perfectly in WMP 9. I recently upgraded from WinXP SP1 to SP2
    as well. Any ideas what might be causing this?

  2. Your created on Audio CD, that's not useless. That's what an Audio CD
    should "appear" to be. You are thinking you are burning the data files to a
    CD, which you are not.

    Chris, Thanks for taking the trouble to reply, but you have misunderstood my
    problem. My point is that an Audio CD (which is what I am trying to create),
    is NOT created; or, to be more accurate, I am getting an audio CD with tracks
    1k long - i.e., it will play as an audio CD, but each track lasts about 1
    second, and is mere noise. I uninstalled WMP 10 and reinstalled 9, and it
    works perfectly, so forgive me if I conclude that the problem is with the CDA
    conversion in version 10.
