I want to burn MIDI files to a CD. How do I do this? First, add the MIDI files to your Media Library in the Player. The files will appear in the Other Media playlist. However, because this playlist does not appear in the Items to Copy pane, you must create another playlist, and then add the MIDI files to that playlist using the following steps: In Windows Media Player, click Media Library. Click Other Media. The MIDI files should appear in the right pane. Right-click on a MIDI file that you want to copy (burn) to a CD, and then click Add to Playlist. In the Add to Playlist dialog box, click New. Type a name for the new playlist, and then click OK. Right-click on the next MIDI file that you want to burn to a CD, and then click Add to Playlist. In the Add to Playlist dialog box, select the new playlist, and then click OK. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for additional MIDI files that you want to add to the playlist. Now that the MIDI files are all in the new playlist, use the following steps to burn them to a CD: In Windows Media Player, click Copy to CD or Device. From the Items to Copy pane, select the playlist that contains the MIDI files you want to burn to a CD. From the Items on Device pane, select Data CD, and then click Copy. The playlist and all its files are burned to the CD. If you use Windows Media Player to play back the CD, you can click on the .wpl file to play all files, or you can open the CD in Microsoft Windows Explorer, and individually select the files you want to play.
Note MIDI files are not music files, they are instructions for how a computer or keyboard can reproduce sounds. To be able to play the MIDI file, the CD player (or computer that hosts the CD player) will need to be MIDI-capable.
