How to Convert MP3 to CDA using MS Windows Media Player

By Mitchell White

CDA files are used on music CDs to help play your music. Converting the MP3 songs on your computer into the CDA format means burning music onto a blank CD-R using your computer's burn drive. The Windows Media Player program will allow you to convert and transfer these files onto a CD. This program is "native," which means it comes with your computer's Windows operating system.

Things You'll Need

  • Blank CD-R
  • Computer with burn drive
  • Windows Media Player

Step 1

Insert a blank CD-R into your computer's CD drive.

Step 2

Open the Windows Media Program under "All Programs" in the Windows "Start" menu. Click the "Burn" tab in the program. Select "Music CD" under the drop-down menu there.

Step 3

Click on the MP3 file in the folder where it's saved on your computer, and drag it over to the "Burn List" in Windows Media Player.

Step 4

Click the "Start Burn" button. Your MP3 will be burned onto the CD-R using the CDA format.
