Windows 7: Copy mp3s to new folder using an m3u file

Copy mp3s to new folder using an m3u file

That is to say, I have an m3u file that calls mp3s from different folders. I would like to burn those mp3s, about 640MB worth, to a cd with ImageBurn. I don't want to spend time finding and adding each mp3 to the list in ImageBurn. I once had a program on Windows 2000 that would read an m3u file and make copies of all its mp3s in a new folder, allowing me to just select that new folder in the burner. I can't find anything like that for Windows 7 (or even my old one for win2k). Does anyone know of one?

Hmm, this is probably the one you used on your Win2k machine all those years ago.

m3u Playlist Copier - Programm m3u listis olevate lugude kopeerimiseks (don't worry the page is in English)

Basically, search the internet for "copy mp3s from m3u to another folder". I remember opening my m3u playlist a while ago, it's a readable text file with each song's entry being a path to the song file, should be trivial to write a utility to parse this to do what you want. I don't move my song files around much so haven't had the occasion to try this out.

Yreka!!

There must be several programs with this name, because I had tried a couple, including the one Trucidation suggested, to no avail. But upon searching again using the search string suggested by Trucidation, I came upon this M3U Copier at M3U File Copier that works perfectly. Thanks again.
