Instead of clicking on the filename to hear it, right click and click "Save Target As" or the equivalent.

Course you can. Once you click on the file and it opens up media player or whatever your default is, back on the internet page there's now a link at the top to rightclick and save as. It's now on your machine :)

That's in firefox, I assumed he was using IE. Firefox gives you the option of saving the destination of the link, but in IE you can only save as, in other words if the link doesn't directly go to the file it'll save the forwarding address as an HTML document.

Yes, but if you click on the file to play it the page will then give you a link at the top that you can choose SAVE TARGET AS and save the file with.

Good point, think if we repeat it often enough that people will actually catch on?

Perhaps there should be a FAQ category on how to save the files with various browsers (at least IE, Opera, Firefox, and Safari).

I know Opera and did some checking with Firefox, and have something written up for both.

I use 98lite, so don't have IE. Maybe someone with a Mac could put together something for Safari.
