Alright, I checked the how to forum but could not really find anything related to this. I have M4A files on my system. They were given to me by a business partner from an audio book he purchased. I want to get these onto CD so that I can listen to them while on the road. Now, when I burn them to CD, they will not play in my any of my vehicles. I even converted them to MP3 and some other file that I can not remember the extension for. Anyways, they will still not play. I have a CD-R and was using Windows Media Player to burn. I had a program to convert the files but clearly the conversion didn't work. I want to say it was called "Free M4A to MP3 converter"

Any help will be immensely appreciated!

NB - I tried to post in the how to forums but it said I could not start a new topic there as it contains answers to the most common questions on site.

I can't think of any reason why the mp3 file did not work on your vehicle. After converting, were you able to play the .mp3 file on your PC? If not, it might be caused by a corrupted converted file. You can use a free site such as this one: http://media.io/ to convert the file and then download it. And I'm not sure about Windows Media Player but check out Nero Start Smart which is my favorite disk burning utility. It helps you burn files much easier and efficiently.

My daughters car won't play any MP3's whatsoever because they need to be in Audio CD format and this is what I use when she wants some cd's for the car.
