    My computer has Windows 7 OS. Originally, it contained WMP, but I found it too intrusive. I wanted to use VLC and WMP interrupted me. I deleted all WM folders from my computer using the regedit to find and delete.

    Now that I am driving longer distances on the interstates, I want to listen to my MP3 files on my car's CD-ROM drive. I cannot find a program, freeware preferably or other, to convert my MP3's without WMP. Can someone please suggest a program or a method (other than use a friend's computer!)?

    I understated the problem. The audio I want to burn on a CD-ROM is not on an MP3 file. It is in a folder of MP4 files. Is there a program that will strip the audio from an MP4 and burn it onto a CD-ROM? Or must I first use a program to create an MP3 from the MP4, one file at a time from the folder, and then use the ashampoo software you kindly recommended to burn the audio? I don't think ashampoo will burn a CD from MP4 files.

    Now thats a more complicated question mp4 files are usually video and audio.Audio only mp4 files have an m4a file extension and to be honest I don't know of a program that will convert those files to a format that will play on your car player.Some one else might .
    With regard to your first post it should not have been necessary to delete the wmp files,you should have associated your mp4 files to play on vlc by open with and then choose program, also ticking the box to always use vlc.
    Good look with your quest.

    I extract audio, as mp3, from mp4 files using this
    http://www.pazera-software.com/products/audio-extractor/

    I don't burn CDs any more but I have in the past and played those CDs in the car. I think the files are cda or possibly wav files. (I might experiment and see if our cars, which are old 2002 and 2005 can play a CD with mp3 files on it.)

    Now I simply put the mp3 files on a micro sd card and put it into an mp3 player. I have the player connected to a portable speaker and listen in my car that way.
    A tiny 2GB card holds close to 500 songs which can play with no repeats for days.
