    m3u is only a playlist, it does not contain any audio & as such cannot be converted into an mp3.

    Open the m3u file in a text editor and it may point you to some mp3s (maybe)

    Thats correct

    It's useless on any pc but your friends mp3 files.
    Load your in
    and create your own m3u file.Its only for Winamp Player.

    Actually many applications can read m3u files, even Windows Media Player if I'm not mistaken but it won't change the fact that it's simply a playlist, a list that contains tracks (& their path on the computer) to play & the order in which to play them.
