Brian (c: DJML)--
     When i burn CDs on my Mac, the sound-file format has the 
extension of ".aif" (or ".aiff", for Audio Interchange File Format). 
I had thought that ".wma" (Windows Media Audio) was the format for 
IBM-type machines, so i'm puzzled why it won't work for you.  Maybe 
it's just ".wav" that works.  I would presume that there are also 
other formats that work.
