    "Burning" playlist to a CD

    I'm a newbie here, so this simple question:

    Is there an easy way of copying the songs on a playlist to a CD without plucking them out one by one?

    If so, how?

    Guess that's two questions. Thanks for any help.

    Save your playlist then drag it into foobar2000. Burn to Cd is just a right click away...

    saving to Foobar

    Well, I imported the playlists (m3u, right?) into foobar, but it doesn't recognize the playlists. I mean it names them but finds nothing in them anbd says it's an unrecognized format.

    Any more specific ideas? I've got Foobar2000 opened side by side, but I can't figure out how to have Foobar recognize the playlist.

    s.d.

    Will ITunes enable me to import an m3u playlist?

    What's the file format? Did you made the playlist via Slimserver or some other application? Make certain the playlist is pointing to to right files (open the m3u file in a txt editor an look at the song paths). Should work...

    i'll point

    thanks, yann. I made the playlists in slimsever for my squeezeboxes. Perhaps I'll try the editing. I have no idea why the files (m3u) don't show up.

    on further inspection

    My m3u files made by slimserver will play my playlists but show up in windows explorer as empty with zero bits. Odd! That, obviously, is having a kinda negative effect on things.

    Any thoughts out there?
