    When I burn CDs I like to print a CD label with the song list.

    Does anyone know a way to copy or export a playlist from Windows Media Player v9 so that I don't have to retype the song titles?

    I know how to export the playlist to a wpl file. The problem is that Word and other editors don't seem to be able to read .wpl
    files.

    I'm trying to get the track titles into a format that can be edited and formated to be printed on a CD label.

    Hiya and welcome

    Don't have WMP9 myself, but see if this works.

    Export the playlist into the wpl file. Rightclick on the file, and choose Open With...
    if it doesn't offer that bit, just highlight the file. Then, with the Shift key pressed down, rightclick again.

    From the list, choose NotePad or even Word. make sure that the box Always use this program... is Unticked.

    Now, if you can read it in Word, can you edit the list properly? If not, you can save it as a Notepad somewhere, and Open that in Word.

    Regards

    It sort of will work, it will look something like this:
    This is from Notepad.....

    <?wpl version="1.0"?>
    <smil>
    <head>
    <meta name="Generator" content="Microsoft Windows Media Player -- 9.0.0.3075"/>
    <title>mp3</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <seq>
    <media src="..\My Documents\My Music\KoB[1].E.-04-holday.mp3" tid="{59FC6B86-1090-4ABE-B449-77E94FA9055E}"/>
    <media src="..\My Documents\My Music\5song.mp3" tid="{25517A16-9810-45C4-B85D-636E2DC9A6D6}"/>
    </seq>
    </body>
    </smil>
