    Went to the following website, http://www.purevolume.com/riesinclair , and
    clicked on the grayed out "download" button for "Just You and Me". I
    didn't get the normal download/save window. The song just played in it's
    entirety. Has Firefox stored it somewhere in it's temp files? Where could
    I find the song on my harddrive? I know it's here somewhere as each time I
    play it, I don't have to wait for it to download again (I'm on dialup).
    There's no place on this site to purchase the music and I can't find it
    anywhere else. I've looked in several folders in Windows Explorer. I
    tried right clicking on the website's player thinking I might get a "save
    as" window. Help!....please :)

    if you right click the link for the song, you should get a "save as" option.
    if not...
    the temp files for firefox are under
    documents and settings\username\local settings\...
    documents and settings\username\applicaiton data\mozilla\...
    check in there...
    you may need to show hidden/systemfiles.

    Hummm, not there :( And I tried the right clicking on the song link. Oh
    and show hidden files were already unhidden.

    my firefox cache files are stored in firefox at this directory
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Jay\Application
    the profile name will be different for you so check them all.

    perhaps you also have offline files turned on, and it could be saving
    those as well, that would be saved under system32 i believe.

    Well I guess it's just not on here afterall. I finally navigated thru all
    the folders but nothing was there that indicated a music file or any file
    that I could actually open.
    Thanks for your help tho :)

    Firefox cache files, unlike Navigator's, are either scrambled,
    compressed or both. There might be something like Firefox Cache Viewer,
    though. Do a Google search? If you do find one, could you post the

  7. Certain formats (like Real) only leave a stub on the computer and stream
    the media, so you may not find it. In Windows XP, Mozilla Firefox's
    cahce is (by default) in C:\Documents & Settings\$USERNAME\Application
    Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[8_random_chacters].default\Cache, chances
    are if it's anywhere, it'd be there. For the Mozilla Suite (now known
    as SeaMonkey), change /Firefox/ to /default/ and exclude the .default
    from the following sub-directory (but it will start with random characters).

    There's methods of capturing a stream if that's the case. Certain
    formats can be copy directly via software, and at worst case you can use
    a program like AudioJacker or TotalRecorder which record anything that
    passes through your sound card (downside is this occurs in real time).

    OK guys, I've looked and looked for these programs. Lots of hits on google
    but none lead to where I can download either one of them. Even went to the
    "darkside" of the Internet and couldn't locate it there either. Anyone have
    a working link to either program?

    I use this one for recording. If you get the LAME MP3 Encoder plug-in, you
    can save your recorded audio as mp3 files.

  11. I think it will be in your Cache folder, but with a jumbled name & no
    ..wav tail.

    And this program and plugin will record a song on the Internet that plays
    but doesn't give me any way to save it?

    I did it!! Thank you all so much especially *alien* :eek: Downloaded Audacity
    and the LAME.dll and thought "what the heck am I'm going to do with this?"
    <lol> It was pretty straight forward. Recorded my song with "What U Hear"
    then with the help of the LAME.dll converted it to a mp3 :) Thanks again!

  14. I'm glad you got Audacity to work; it's a great project and I'm
    definitely looking forward to version 1.3 (I run that version in Linux
    and its a great step up). Anyways, I'm not sure why you had so much
    trouble finding TotalRecorder; I admit it its been about 4 years since I
    last used it (had a class freshmen year of college that required you to
    use LiquidAudio to listen to it, but LiquidAudio had some limits like
    you had to stream it, etc.), but anyway...I just googled TotalRecorder
    and click I'm Feeling Lucky. This takes me to
    http://www.highcriteria.com/ and the link (top center on the page) is to
    a download page for TotalRecorder.
