i have windows vista home premium with windows media player. i bought my first ever download. it went into my music folder, but windows media player doesn't see it, says it can't find it. i decided (I can't recall how i decided) that the problem was most likely because the download had a .htm file format. (It seems odd that music would be in .htm format, and that's one of my questions). anyhow, i downloaded a free translator to attempt to put the file into some form the player might recognize, but i could never figure out how to get the file into the translator, i couldn't figure out how to run the translator. finally, i got scared of goofing up my puter, and deleted the translator. I am totally lost! I can't find info anywhere on what file formats media player recognizes. I'm really excited to start learning this stuff---i havn't listened to my favorite music in about 20 years, and i really wanna do it. I don't know quite where to start and i feel discouraged.:(

.htm isn't a music file, so you're right about that.

It sounds as though you may have saved the LINK to the download instead of the song itself.

Where did you download this song from?

i bought the download at a site called PANDA. i liked it cuz the price was only 1.50 for the whole album. when i downloaded , i did exactly what they said and clicked how they said, but i will go back and look and try to figure out if i did what you said.
I had never heard of an .htm file format so i did a bit of research...i learned that it is essentially html, which I am very familiar with since i used it in my work 20 years ago ( i havn't been in the workforce for 20 years, so i'm really rusty) so the music download must be imbedded in a bigger file which has htm format i think.
it's funn learning about computers again.
