Recently started using "LIMEWIRE" and some of the audio tracks i have downloaded have come in the m4a format. Now , i know m4a is supposed to be the next step forward from mp3, but i cant play back any of these tracks on my computer. I use media player 10 for ripping and burning cds, but this doesent recognise them. my default player is my creative audigyzx2 player, but this also doesnt use the m4a format either.
Can anybody tell me a bit more about these files and how, if possible to get one of my players configured to play this type of audio when neccesary.
KEV.

You can use Winamp which I prefer, its free and you can download it from their website, it supports playing .m4a files.
