After downloading just right click and rename it to .mp3 if you can already see the file extension. Or leave it as it is if using winamp, as it will still play it. Winamp will still be able to decode it if the original was renamed for whatever reason (i.e. host doesn't want mp3's files users sites for downloading) to another file extension or if the file is even zipped.
I don't know what's going on. It is definitely my computer only. I installed Download Accelerator today, and I am able to use that to download the files as MP3s. I went into my filetypes and deleted the mp2 format hoping that that might do something. Now when i download the files, they aren't recognized, but are still saved as mp2s. i am able to change the file extension through that though. i don't know if it is a problem with internet explorer or what. i might just try reinstalling IE. is there a way to do that. also, for future reference, anyone know how to make it so you can see the file extensions all the time? is that possible in XP. thanks.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
