cant burn Music

By Chester Peterson ·
I have a 12x8x32 burner using Nero v5.0.4.9.
I can burn data onto a cdr easily but I cant burn music. When I drag music files across it says "The WMA (MS Audio) file could not be opened. Either the Windows MS Audio System extensions are not installed or the file may be damaged"
I have no idea what this means and the music plays fine on the PC using Windows Media Player.
Please help!
p.s. The PC is running fine and I have Scandisked and defraged

It sounds like all you need to do is get the WMA plugin from the Ahead website.

Doesn't look like Nero supports wma drag and drop for music, just tried it. So you will need to convert the files to something else. Alternatively if you are using a recent versio nof Windows media player to listen to the files, then you can also use it to cut the CD (Copy to CD or Device" option), as it will do the conversion for you before it starts writing.

Hope this helps

WMA - Windows Media Audio - its the same principle as MP3, but WMA was created by Microsoft. To created audio CDs using WMA sound files you need a extra Plugin for Nero Burning Rom, which is free to download, see the download section on the site. http://www.nero.com/en/#root

I had a similar problem and I uninstalled Nero and reinstalled it. This solved my problem.
