    Okay, let me explain the entire situation for you guys:

    I downloaded a program that would allow me to download streaming files. The problem is, that after downloading a few of them, it seems as if I'm unable to play them - I can't seem to understand why, though. I tried using every program I have: Winamp, Real Player, Windows Media Player, VLC Media Player (Which usually plays everything), to no avail.

    Here's the file I get when I click on the Winamp screen:

    Network received: 10424403 bytes
    Server: Mp3 ToolBox/v1.0 beta 5
    Content-Type: audio/mpeg

    So here are my questions:

    1.) Any idea why they won't play?

    2.) Is there ANYTHING out there that would allow me to play this file?

    Would really appreciate some help with this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, have never seen a file like this before, it's an "@@@" file. What the hell is that?

    Is that the extension or name? Also what is the size of the file?

    It's the extension. Instead of .MP3, it's [email protected]@@.

    And the size of the files range anywhere from 200 to about 300MB.

    p.s.

    And I've tried changing the extension to MP3, Wav, WMV, Avi, and still no luck.

    hi
    your best bet might be checking the help section of the software itself or trying the support section at their website

    did it ever work or has the trial period expired maybe?

    if the files your trying saving are just audio you could use audacity
