This particular streaming radio station generates .asf files.  That's what's 
so crazy about the thing.  I believe I will uncheck the box to create .m3u 
files, though there are some .mp3's that play just fine and I just ignore 
the .m3u's listed with those before I delete both after hearing the show.

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