    I've used Nero and Alcohol 120% quite a bit for buring data CDs. My daughter wants to burn some MP3 albums to CD. All the tracks are in MP3 format but there is one that is listed as an M3U file. What is this for and what does it do?

    Also, should each MP3 track be copied in individually or can you just copy the folder containing them?

    One more. After you burn the MP3s and pop the CD into your player, will it auto-play or is there something that must be done to ensure this?

    Sorry if I sound like a total doof.

    The M3U file is a playlist. It won't matter if you burn that to the CD or not.. If you want to be able to play the files in a normal CD player, you'll have to burn the disk as a audio disk in nero. Nero should convert the files so they are uncompressed.

    If you plan to use the CD in a PC, or in a mp3 capable player, you can just burn the folder's contents to a disk, it will not autoplay though..
