Hi

before I changed my laptop I burned my mp3s from iTunes to a cdr. Now I want to load them on again, whats the procedure? Is it straightforward? I notice the songs have a .m4a extension. What is that and can these tracks still be played in, say, MediaPlayer and/or burned to a cd compilation as normal?

Also, if i buy from Itunes can the tracks be played on any mp3 player, and/or burned to a cd ? I dont think it used to be possible but Im just wondering if the situation has changed?

Many thanks

I tried to open one of the songs with Media Player and it wont play. Heres what i got:

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

You see I was considering maybe using Media Player 11 but it looks now as if I will have to reload iTunes and use it. Weird how they're not compatible. So Im stuck with iTunes...

What happened to Media Player anyway. I have songs uploaded from purchased CDs that MP11 will not allow me to burn. It doesn't error out, it just doesn't do it - passively noncompliant. I think they have changed the codecs so that if you don't buy it from them, forget it! I downloaded a nifty freeware app that burnt a great CD for me - CD burner XP3.
