    Details? (File type - e.g. nicesong.mp3, nicesong.wma ...; what burning software do you use?)

    dbPowerAmp will convert almost any format.

    You have to convert to WAV format (44100Hz, 16 bits, stereo). Any burning program can burn WAV files to an Audio CD directly (the data inside a WAV and a CD-DA is the same).

    There are a lot of programs that can burn MP3 files to a CD-DA directly, because they decode the files while burning.

    I recommend you Feurio because it warns you if the MP3 files are corrupted. It's not an easy program, but the help teaches you everything about audio discs.

    The extension of the files should help you to identify them.
    Windows default is to hide the extension of known file formats, which is one of the most stupid things I've ever seen.

    Disable "Hide file extensions" in the options of your Windows explorer, and tell us what is the format.

    Most music in the net is in the lossy MP3 format, but maybe those files aren't MP3.

    what is the name of the files as tigre asked you?
    The extension is the letters after the dot and usually indicates the format of the file.

    song.MP3 ?
    song.OGG ?
    song.APE ?

    Yes, you have to convert to WAV 44100Hz, 16bits, stereo format.
