How to record wma, wmv, asf files as audio tracks onto CD with Windows Media Player
Audio tracks of recorded Windows Media streams (wma, wmv, asf) and downloaded Windows Media files (wma, wmv, asf) can be burned on CDs as follows:
- Open Windows Media Player.
- Add wma, wmv or asf files to the Playlist:
- Click Media Library, and then find the item you want to add to a playlist.
- Right-click the item, and then click Add to Playlist.
- Click the playlist you want to add the item to.
- You can also drag items from My Computer or the desktop to a playlist.
- You can add items to a playlist in Now Playing by dragging them to the Playlist pane; however, these items are only added temporarily.
- You can add items to a playlist as long as they are listed in Media Library. For example, you cannot add items that are displayed in the Now Playing category of Media Library if they have not been added to Media Library previously.
- To add several adjacent items to a playlist at once, press and hold the SHIFT key while selecting. To add several nonadjacent items to a playlist at once, press and hold the CTRL key while selecting. Right-click the selected items, and then click Add to Playlist.
- To add items to a new playlist, click New in the Add Playlist dialog box, and then type the name for the new playlist.
- If Windows Media Player is not in Full Mode switch to full
- Select Copy to CD or Device. The selected playlist
will be displayed.
- Optionally you can right click on each song, select Advanced
Tag Editor and add / change the track Info (song name,
artist name, etc).
- Insert a blank CD in your CD burner and click Copy.
This process will allow recorded audio to be played on any CD player. Note that many older CD Players will only play CD-R discs, and not CD-RW discs.
