I saved music files as MP3 and saved playlists, saved as BurnAudio etc., or in Music as playlists, and then made new cds.  Now I try to "add files" and the playlist comes as m3u. Screen says files may have been removed or deleted.  However, the m3u files can be recognized by iTunes or Windows Media Player.  What happened, and how do I add these music files to the Burn Audio screen in such a way that the program will recognize them?  Example: below is 1 track on a demo cd playlist.  But the playlist won't load -- it seems now to be in m3u, Which Roxio doesn't seem to recognize.  Yet it saved the playlist as m3u, and it didn't used to. 


Need help on this.

Right.  I know that m3u files should direct the program to wherever on the computer the individual tunes are.  In Roxio Creator, when I click on Add Files and then click on the particular playlist I want, the message says the file may have been moved or deleted.  Properties says it's an m3u file, which BurnCD should find and open.  I also saved the files as BurnAudio, which Properties says are Rox Image Files, with the extension .rox.  It would seem that Roxio should open these as well, but the message says the files may have been moved or deleted.  So why doesn't Roxio work anymore.

I don't know what your talking about when you say "In Roxio Creator,& BurnCD" use the correct program name so someone knows what your doing!


Roxio Image files have to be mounted and played on a emulated drive or added to a burn project, so what do you mean by "Roxio should open these" ??

I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

If you add your .M3U file to a player that supports playlists, do the songs play?  Is the .M3U file and all of the songs its pointing to in their original folders when the .M3U file was created?  If not, then you could get the message(s) you're seeing.  If the .M3u has a relative path to get to the songs, and you move the .M3U file to a new folder, then that relative path won't work any more.  It sounds to me like you may have moved some of your files so that the .M3U file is no longer properly pointing to the songs.

Many thanks to both of you.  Quite right that I was unclear in what I was trying to ask.  I started over and made a test playlist with 4 tunes, each up to about a minute in length.  Then I added a tune to make a total of five.  And everything worked.  I'm not sure what the problems were, but I think I know how to make the system work.


I'm using Roxio Creator 2012 with Widows 7.  I open the Roxio application, then hit Burn Audio CDs.  Then under Add Files (with the green + sign) I now go into MyMusic/Playlists and click on the playlist I want (provided I haven't tinkered with it and changed tunes) and the tunes properly come up under Add Files.  When I make a playlist I click on Save Playlist, and the list is saved under MyMusic/Playlists.  When I close Roxio, I'm asked "Would you like to save your current BurnAudioCDs project?", it seems to save the project as a Roxio Image file, which I can then double click on, and the Roxio app automatically starts.  


I'm thinking that I must have added a file or somehow tinkered with the playlist or changed or moved something. 


However, now it seems to work quite OK. 


Thank you for you all your help.
