    Don't you want wav format for the car (I've assumed it's a normal CD player) - or does your player play wma's?

    If it is wav you want, then Windows Media Player will do it, along with other programs. If it is wma that you need, then I don't know. Wasn't aware that there are in-cars that play wma's!

    As above mate.

    Just make a standard Audio CD using one of the CD/DVD authoring software available (i.e. Nero, Easy CD Creator etc)

    as above, but if your head unit doesn't support MP3 then i would very suprised if it supported WMA...
    you would need to burn the files as a .cda format.
    which any burning software will do as standard when chosing the audio cd option.

    Yep, all car CD players will play wav files - that's the format of normal CD's. As long as the unit can play CD-R's.

    Your initial post mentioned wma files - so now I'm confused! lol Do you still want to convert mp3 to wma or did you mean wav? 'cos I'm pretty sure the CD2013 won't play wma files.
