SYMPTOMS

Windows Media Player may not recognize playlists that you created by using either the CD Deluxe or the CD Player program.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Windows Media Player only recognizes playlists that are stored in the .asx file format.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, create new playlists by using Windows Media Player or the PowerToys Data Conversion tool in the Windows Media Player Bonus Pack. To download this tool, visit the following Microsoft Web site, and view "Windows Media Tools and Services":

Note The Data Conversion tool is only available in the Windows Media Player Bonus Pack for Windows Media Player 7.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
