    I wanna throw a pie in his face too

    I'm asking a girl to homecoming next week, and following the advice, that girls love corn, so if guys think it's corny, girls'll love it, I'm singing, "Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?" Anyway, I got a midi file that sounds somewhat realistic, and I need to put it on a CD. Windows Media Player is having a problem with that step. Is there the same problem with all MID files, or is the file corrupt, do you think? I would test with another MIDI file, but I only have one-time-write CDs. Kind of a waste of 50c, and CostCo is a long way from here...

    edit: So after banging my head my head on the keyboard until I had alphabetical scars on my face (they should have airbags so that when your computer crashes you don't bang your head on the monitor or anything), I decided to go ahead and waste 50c. It must be the MID files because several other files caused the error. Will it work if I get MIDI -> mp3 converter, and then burn?

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    The problem probably lies in the software, not the file. It should be able to copy to a disk if it plays on your computer, as just a file. You may be trying to burn as song or music file and it wont convert that properly. You may just need to burn it as a file. Hope you know the difference, and your software allows you to change. I would suggest getting nero burn software, or something better than media player.
    The keyboard is the standard device used to cause computer errors!

    I know where to find conversion utilties. Much less expensive than that, too.

    If I burn it as a file, it won't play on a standard CD Player.

    Actually talking of conversion utilities gave me an idea. The only time I've ever successfully burned music, it was taken off a CD with Windows Media player. I just got a MIDI - WMA conversion utility and it works.
