    Whenever I used to click a link in a web page that is for sampling an MP3 clip, I would get a download dialog box asking to save and where to save the file. Just recently, I went to a familiar web site that I frequently download sound clips of guitar pickups. Now, when I click the link, I get no dialog box. On the bottom left hand corner, it says "Downloading from site" and eventually it will say "Done". The problem is I never get the MP3 sample. It leads me to a blank web page. I was curious, so I tried several other web sites that offer free MP3 sample clips and have experienced the same problem. I opened explorer and went to tools/folder options/ file types and selected MP3 and made sure that there was a check in the "Confirm open after download", but still can not download these clips.

    Try right clicking and select "save target as" then save it to a folder on your hard drive. When the download finishes it will give you the option to open it. If you select yes it will then play your clip via whatever program you have set as the default mp3 player.
