M3U files

  lintony 21:18 27 Mar 2003

I have music that I downloaded from an arabic website using Real Player. The properties show that these files are M3U files. I have burnt this music to a CD but it can can only be played on my PC. How can I convert these M3U files to MP3 files so that i can play the CD on my stereo?

An m3u file is a play list not an audio file. It points to the MP3 file on your computer, that's why it can't be played on your Stereo, because your sterio doesn't have the MP3 file. For it to play on your PC, you must also have the MP3 on your PC, so try a search for them on your PC's hard disk. Go to Start > Search > Files and Folders and type in "*.mp3" (without the quote marks).
