wma file

what is a wma file and can it be played on a normal car stereo after being downloaded from Kazzaa?

WMA is a Windows Media Audio file , no it cannot be played on a cd player in your car , it would have to be converted to a wav file first .

It seems wav files are few and far between is there no way of changing wma and mp3 files to wav files?

Are you burning to CD?

Windows media player or Nero will convert the files to CDA format before burning automatically.

Convert them to mp3 using this software click here then burn them to disc as audio files and they should play on any cd player.

I have burned a couple of discs now. MP3 files that are on my computer (windows media player. )And I use Nero and I use Nero 5 (audio setting) to burn it to disc. It does not play on my own stereo or my car stereo but it does play back on my computer. I was told Nero would change mp3 files to files that could be played on own stereo too? Really confused now. Please someone help - either it does or it doesn't....

What media are you using CDR or CDRW?

  leo49 16:40 24 Mar 2004

It definitely does. Are you finalising the discs?

  cass27 18:03 24 Mar 2004

I am using cdrw. What does finalising actually mean. (it plays on the computer so it should be ok shouldn't it? At the very end of burning last time it ended burning and I had to press next. Another window came up asking me what I would like to do next. There was nothing so I chose exit. It then disappeared from the screen. Any ideas?

as most domestic cd players and car cd players won't read CDrw discs.

In Nero choose make audio cd and drag the Mp3s into the compilation, Nero will then convert them into wav files that can be read on any cd player.

Do Not Use CDrw.
