    i'm downloading mp3s in a directory on a website, there is over 1000 mp3s and its annoying clicking on each 1 of them. is there any programs that will list the directory n just download all files automatically, or any other ways?

    Look into the windows version of wget, it does exactly that. Scans a HTML document ( this case a website ) and follows and downloads all links.

    try using opera... there is a panel on the hotlist bar that lists all the links on a page.... you can download all links with one click... you can also make a selection and download that

    i cant use flash get coz it uses a script..

    downloadMP3.php?tune=blkdnen-crypted code-id=choon.mp3/dfkjlskfj

    i know the actual link to the folder where the mp3's are stored but when u go there they use a javascript that directs u to the mp3 script page... so if i wonna download a choon without usiong the script i gotta get the file name of the mp3 from the script page and put it on the end of the path... there is over 1000 mp3s in the folder and doing that is taking forever... so what i need to do is to get a program and be able to enter the folder link 2 the mp3s and then it will scan the folder for all the files and download them 1 by 1

    I'd say the purpose of the redirect is to keep peple from doing just that. Saves the site op money on bandwidth and so on. Give this a try though, just make sure the link depth is 1 so you don't download the whole site. Also, you should be able to filter extensions, to only download .mp3 files.
