Yes folks, I'm back and in recovery mode.
Another answer for this topic is a freeware program available from www.cnet.com
called 'Power MP3 WMA Converter'. This allows you to convert audio files between WMA / WAV and MP3 and, believe me, the rsults are 100% assuming that you've used a package such as Nero to make the original recording. Said package, if used, can then 'burn' your CD ready for the stereo system.
By the way, for UK members, if you want cheap but quality blank CD-Rs try your local Toys'R'Us. Unusual, but extremely cheap...
Thanks to all who've sent emails about my time in Asia. They were well received and all I can say is THANKS!
