Ok, here is the deal. When I try to download an MP3 file, my save as option is gone. Instead it starts to download the file thru my browser....bottom left computer icon with a red arrow - almost as though I were downloading a Quicktime Movie. When it is finished, it always comes back with an error message saying the plug-in did not do something correctly. Regardless of that, I just want my save as feature to come back. I have looked thru my file types in folder options to check what is the default program for mp3s....it is winamp, which is my preference. Any ideas?

hi jaycjayz,

Are you sure that the file link that you are trying to download when you right-click, is a direct link to the MP3. I know it sounds simple but it could be a link to another file or control.
Also depends where you are downloading from, the best place I've found is Limewire ... it's great, you can get most general mp3 files - and interestingly for you, they have a file integrity check on you mp3 downloads - it'll tell you if the file you are trying to download is corrupt.
Another place for MP3...
Limewire...

The file is on the web, not on someones computer in a p2p network. This doesnt just happen on one mp3 file, it happens on ALL mp3 files.

Help!?
