These posts were placed in "IDEA:", but I think the little free program in mention, AV Media Copy, is worth knowing about in general - more people than JeffK and me must sometimes want to copy a playlist's content, the actual music files, to another location without burning anything:

... find a program to copy the music files in my daughters Windows Media Player 10 playlist (.wpl file) to another directory while maintaining the original folder structure. AV Media Copy from www.avsoft.nl does something similar ...
It hasn't been updated for more than five years, (yes, this is a very old thread), but I had no problem at all, installing and using it on Vista. The GUI is logic, the procedure easy, and the copying is fast. Of course it can handle several playlist file types, including M3U playlists, not just WPL. The organization of the new folders were not important to me, so I just unchecked that option, and all 372 files from my playlist were soon gathered in a new folder.

The msi installation file is merely 428 Kb
(look for the sentence: "Download the application here before you go on."
This little program made my day. Thanks for telling, JeffK
I have just used AV Media Copy to update the above mentioned collection, using the same long playlist. The program didn't protest or ask silly questions, it just skipped the already existing files and copied the two new files into the folder.
Yes, AV Media Copy
is old, and it has extremely few features, but they work
It should be said that Media Copy specifically needs Framework 1.1
