I downloaded some mp3s which I want to burn to CD-RW. I converted them to WAV and then burnt them to disc with CDBurnerXP. After burning when I open the disc on my computer it says the files are CDA, which won't play on a stereo (which is what i'm trying to do) any idea how to solve it?

Does your stereo recognize .mp3's? If so, what happens if you just burn the .mp3's straight to a CD?

Some cd-players will not read CD-RW try burning them on a CD-R instead it might help.

CDA (CD-Audio) is the default format (same as if you buy a brand new music cd at the store).
WAVE is the uncompress format for windows.
MP3 is a song compress.

If you take a MP3 song and put it back to WAVE you will never get back whatever sound was taken out (unhearable sound for the human ears). Just burn your MP3 directly (you will save time and and less steps) to your cd-r as a CDA or as suggested as a MP3 if your cd-players reads them.

You have to use CDR, not CDRW.
