    I recently received an email with music files attached. To play them you click the song and an internet website opens to play them.

    Is there a way to save this email music to my music libray and burn them to a CD? When I look at the file properties it says HTML document. How do I convert them to music files, if possible.

    You haven't been sent the music files themselves, you've been sent links to the songs which live on a website somewhere. Do you have to click on another link on the web page to get them to play or does it start up automatically? If you are allowed to save the songs then right clicking the link that plays the song, 'save target as' may allow you to download it. The songs may not be available for download though.
    Post the link to the song here if you want so we can have a look.

    The music is only "streamed" to your PC. It's not downloaded in the normal sense.

    Visiting the site you can select the songs to listen to, but as they are copyright they have removed the ability to dowload them.

    They clearly state this on their website.

    While there may be technical ways around this, the forum rules prevent discussion of how to steal such copyright files.
