I have some music that is a wmp file, I think (we moved and I have to dig them out to be sure, but saw this post and wanted to ask). Will this convert them so I can listen to them? I know before we moved, I tried and the program I was using wouldn't recognize this kind of file.

Please forgive me, because I think I have the format wrong. I found the music cd's, but Windows MP won't play them. I think it's a whole album that or an album wrap? I can't even see what's on the cd's to say for sure. Very frustrating. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my question though. I feel bad I didn't have my info correct.

Hey, Pete. You seem like a knowledgable guy. I am new to making my own cd's. I made 2 cd's of my favorite songs using windows media player and now they won't play in my car or main cd player. They will only play on my computer and my daughters late model cd player. They are showing as .cda files. What's up? Why can't I play them anywhere? What do I need to do? Any free help you could provide would be a blessing to me. Thanks, Pete.

Try making a music CD using your CD burning software. I use Roxio 6.0 and the CDs play anywhere.


Be advised, many older CD players, especially those in vehicles, don't play MP3s. So if the music you want to burn is in that format, you will need to convert them to wave files.
