What format to play in home CD player

Friends in the USA have e-mailed me a private recording in wma format. Its about a 4Mb file.

It plays fine on my PC, (using windows media player), but I would like to burn it to a CD to play on my ordinary domestic CD player.

Do I need to convert the format?, if so, what format should it choose?.

Finally, if it needs converting, can anyone suggest a good free converter. As I am doing it just for this one recording, I really don`t want to pay.

When you burn the converted file to a CD-R do it in multisession mode.

You can then add similar files to the disk until it is full and it will save wasting a 700MB disk (OK, I know they are cheap these days but why waste one?)

I think the format is .cda,but most software should convert it to this automatically.

Thanks for your replies.

ACOLYTE: I tried Nero 6, and it made the Cda format recording without any problem. Just tried it on my home CD player; perfect.

I did not realise that Nero would do the conversion.
