That's strange. I just tried it w/ the 7/8/95 show and it worked for me. You have to left click on the box first to take away some "shield" or something, then just right click on each individual song and a box pops up from the right click that has a bunch of options in it (stop, play, next, previous, DL this song, etc.)

As I try and download the song by right-clicking, it just opens a quicktime player in another window. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Also, I tried the temporary internet files and couldn't find them there.

And I have found the address of the m3u, but it is to no avail, for when I find the addresses of the songs I type them in and the quicktime player comes up.

I believe you'll only find them in temporary internet files if you allow the whole song to load.

I don't know about QT but windows media player has a progress line that shows you when it's downloaded.

If you're not sure, let the whole song play and then check. My connection speed is pretty quick, usually about 20 or 30 seconds until its downloaded depending on the size.

Also be sure you're looking in temporary internet files and not 'temp'. If you're using IE7 you'll have to type in 'temporary internet files' on the address line in the file directly before.

For me the address looks like this-

C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files.

That right click download thing doesn't work for me either. It just opens the song in my media player.

I suppose it may work if you have nothing set as your default media player.

If you still don't see the file in your TIF folder you should check and make sure no files are hidden in the view options.

I lost the ability to DL with the "right click" when I upgraded my IE to version 7. I switched to Maxthon browser and can right click again. I use Winamp as my default browser. I had problems with the Window media players so I took it off of my machine. Quicktime sucks so only use it for QT files. Maxthon is free and a very good browser as is Winamp. I suggest using both of those if you want the conveinence of right clicking.

much simpler way....if you type download were it says details in the web address it will take you to a directory of all the files, however you can only get the vbr files but if you must have the show it's there....just right click and save link as ... sbeok.shnf
to >>> ... sbeok.shnf

or has 10-09 shn

Is there anyway to convert from VBR so I can add these to the iTunes? Or can I still put them on there in this format?

These VBRs are a type of MP3s. So in reality, all the files are just MP3s. So no problems with iTunes.

Thanks mucho to both of you!

I've got both shows from 5-15-70 now, and they're smoking!
