Burning WMA files in Vista / Windows Media 11

Burning WMA files in Vista / Windows Media 11

April 5, 2007 | Misc

More fun with Vista.  I love the OS, and there’s so much to recommend it, but I keep running into WEIRD problems!  Here’s another one…  I like to listen to DotNetRocks, Hanselminutes, and other podcasts during my commute to and from client sites.  They offer downloads in both WMA and MP3 formats.  I’ve generally used MP3, but thought, “Hey, I should switch to WMA, since that’s native to Windows Media.  Unfortunately, when I tried to drag any WMA files onto Windows Media 11 in Vista, it won’t allow me to drop them onto the ‘To Burn List’2013-08-28 13:41:29’, or add them any other way I was able to see.  However, MP3 files can be dragged onto the burn list easily.  Weird.  So, I guess it’s back to MP3s. 

NOTE:  For those of you writing to tell me what I’m doing wrong and how to fix it so that it works, I appreciate it.  However, my main complaint isn’t that I can’t spend 30 minutes (or even 10) trying to figure it out and making it work, it’s taht Vista/WM11 seems to choke on native files, but easily support MP3s.
