    I go to a legal site that has mp3 samples... when I click on one it opens a new
    page and say's page cannot be displayed.. I have a new pc, and I do have
    media player set to play mp3's. I believe on my old pc the same thing
    happened until I changed a setting. In IE6 settings I do have play
    multimedia checked and allow active content... when I click on the link
    media player should open and play, it does on my older pc ??? If I copy the
    shortcut and paste it into media player that works, so I know the link is
    good. So what am I missing ? I also tried a link on one of my sites that plays wmv files, also associated with media player and I have the same problem

    it's a registered site... but there just simple mp3 samples, and I can open them on my other pc no problem.. and actually I installed Nero today and accidentally let it become the default mp3 player, so when I went back to my site it worked with that progtam, but I want media player to be the default... somewhere there's a setting ???
