    .wma files are not a valid cd audio file format and have to be burned as per the .cda spec. your software is apparently converting said wma files to cda files. are you having any problems as a result of this?

    When you burn an 'Audio CD' - the format is converted so that it will be recognised in everyday CD players. If you want to preserve the WAV format then you need to burn them as a Data CD, but this will not work in an everyday HiFi that does not support Data CDs.

    Hope this helps!
