    Just found out another strange thing happing on my computer. Don't know if it's suppose to do this or not, but I though see what everyone here had to say.

    When I click on download links on the internet to download mp3 files, the save as box pops up, but it saves it as an MPEG instead, with no option for mp3. The linked file appears as an mp3 file on the info bar. How come it doesn't automatically save it as an mp3.

    I could probably choose 'All file types' and type '.mp3' at the end of the file and then choose save, couldn't I. But, I want it to come up as an mp3 by default.

    What's the deal?

    I accidently posted this topic in the Software forum. Sorry :( So I made a new topic here :p

    possibly because of the music player you have defaulted.

    example... windows media player doesn't play MP3 format

    it uses a different codec

    Hmm :confused: How would I do that then? Change the default I mean. I have Creative Play Center usedd to play Mp3. It's always been that way, and Windows Media Player is what I use to play all the other types of files. What would I have to change?
