    One problem with the WMA format is that most users are using the Default settings from Windows Media Player, and when you create a WMA file with this default setting, you are preventing anyone from writing this to a CD.

    It's a protection feature they have. You must first disable this from within the Window Media Players TOOLS -> OPTIONS -> Copy Music settings, and disable the Protect Content option.

    When you first install Windows Media Player, it warns you of this.
    WMA files that you buy from the internet are also protected and can not be burned to CD with Nero.

    You may also need to download a "Plug In" for Nero, to use WMA files.

    Look on Google for more details.
