I am exporting files to my Windows Media Player (MIDI files), and I want to burn them to a disc, but it says I have no media usage rights. What should I do? (The playback works just fine though, for the MIDI files, BTW.)

You'll have to make .wav files out of the .mid files before sending the wavs to CD in Media Player. Unfortunately, SW/Ov only records directly to .wav when VST instruments are used, not MIDI instruments, so a third program will be needed to record to .wav in realtime while the .mid file is playing in Media Player (or while the .scw file is playing in ScoreWriter). Sound Recorder is an MS barebones program, though it needs to be set up correctly in order to record at CD quality past 60 sec:
XP_STARTbutton>AllPrograms>Accessories>Entertainment>SoundRecorder

There may even be some fuller 3rd party wav recording programs already on your computer, or you could get the freeware Audacity:

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/

Once those .wav files are created, they should then be burnable to a CD in Media Player. (I'm not sure why WMP would give a "usage rights" error since it has nothing to do with copyright protected files.)

----------



Microsoft's own reply to that question explains that .mid files will not record to CD as audio, since, unlike .wav fles, they only contain instructions for the computer's synthesizer to play. An analogy is the roll within a player piano vs an LP record of a piano performance, or a recipe vs a prepared dish.]

Yeah, I downloaded audacity and it turned my file into a wav file but it distorted it into one agonizing sound.

In the Audacity help files, Contents tab, see:
Toolbars> Mixer Toolbar and Meter Toolbar.
During a test recording, adjust the Recording Volume slider until the wave form levels off and the meters dont peak.

If you want to record MIDI music from Windows Media Player to wave files, this software may be useful. It's not free but can be used for a trial period of 14 days.

I have used Goldwave - http://www.goldwave.com/ - for years to make CDs from music I've made with Overture.

It's not free, but does have a free evaluation version available.

OK, thanks everyone, I will try this stuff. I'm always happy to try software that has a trial period!

I think you need to format your disk one time. Sometimes their viruses
