    I have an older cd player and it won't play mp3s. I would like to convert them ( I think ) to wma files. Or should I try wav.? I'm not real sure. I have Roxio Creator 10 but it confuses me on how to do anything. I'm just computer illiterate! I'm running windows Vista. If anyone would take the time to explain in easy to understand language as to how I might do this, I will greatly appreciate it. Thanks, touk

    If the CD player won't play mp3's then it probably won't play wma's either. So what you should do is create an Audio CD which is similar to store bought CD's.

    In Roxio look for an option to burn an Audio CD and it will do the conversion for you. The music on Audio CD's is measured in running time and you can put a maximum of 80 minutes of music on a standard CD.

    Inability to play MP3s may also be a file extension association issue. Open My Computer, click Tools then Folder Options, then click File Types. Under Registered File Types scroll down to MP3. The lower part of the screen should show an application that is supposed to play MP3s (e.g: Windows Media Player).
