Hi -

I'm here now and again.

I've an old Dell Dimension 3100 with XP SP3. I cannot download streaming audio/video: I have tried Freecorder/Audacity - nix. Someone mentioned to me that Dell's creepy legal team advised turning off this capacity.
Can anyone verify this and, are there any remedies? I'll be grateful for any guidance.

What are you trying to download and where are you trying to download it from? Link, please. If it is DRM protected, you won't be able to download it.

I've been trying to download a serial episode on 5US. Nothing. My wife's Compaq Netbook has downloaded it.
I have friends who download iPlayer stuff from BBC using Nero. not me.
I have now learned that Dell did indeed, disable the built-in soundcard's streaming audio capacity.

Tks by the way, for your response.
