Hi Pam, I am wondering if something in Replay Av got checked to make M3U files. these are for MP3 playlists that have links to a file in them for a player like Winamp. if the files would be for windows media player they would be wax or asx or even wmv. it sounds as though you are attempting to record podcasts. most of the streams aare real audio or windows media 9 type, 22 to 35 kbps. I can't think of a reason you would be getting an M3u file.

Recently I have come across some entries in the Replay Recordings folder where I can find no .asf or .mp3 files, but only .m3u and .cab files. I trued opening a .m3u file to look for the recoding itself, but could not find a way to do it. I suppose I should have coped it to Notepad,but didn't do it. I did find a number of .cab files and am not sure how to handle these. Of course this begs the question of why the recordings and conversions didn't complete correctly. This drive is getting rather full and I have deleted a number of old broadcasts and try to remember to delete each as soon as I'm finished with it; but it is not a dedicated drive and shares space with many other files. I'm wondering if the scarcity of space, only a couple of gigs or so, has anything to do with the problems I'm having. The problem largely seems to affect recordings from a certain site which streams with Media Player; though I have seen some .mp3's there. Should I try converting to .mp3 after recording has been completed? I'd like to maintain the ability to listen in Media Player, but for the most part these are not to be kept permanently so MP3 would be an option over not having the recording at all. Any help would be appreciated, including strategies on working with the output files that have been created. Thanks in advance.
