Problems downloading bought music,please help.

I have paid for a 48 hr download,called a bonoweekend with weblisten. This expires tomorrpw morning so urgent help needed. The prob is that I cannot seem to download and save music to the destination of my choosing, no option given when dloading.WMP9 takes over and plays the file and music is stated as being saved to temp folder. Under win explorer i cannot find the files in temp at all.All empty so not dloading, just playing.Previously, months ago, I had been able to dload to my docs but not this time. have tried closing ZA and also uncheck mp3 file in wmp9 to no avail. Maybe ie6 is interfering? Help!

Can you right click the link and choose "Save AS" and save the file from there?

Sorry "Save Target as..."

Will try this Powerless again. I think I have tried so many options since yesterday I have forgotten.

Powerless, I can't.Just tried. Its greyed out. The thing is when I dloaded the free sample, it was ok but not music which I have paid for on the same site.I am tearing my hair out. I still think is ie6 or wmp9 intercepting the dload.Any more suiggestions

Try this...

In Internet Explorer Click on the MEDIA icon at the top. A window will open on the left and at the bottom just above the round play button click ok MEDIA OPTIONS then click SETTINGS then go onto click RESET PREFERRED TYPES...

Now click "ok".

Try your music again.

Tried what you suggested yesterday and also just now but it then tries to dload to temp folder automatically which does not exist in explorer. Does not give me the option for dloading.

Has the site got any help/contact links you can use? (Though I'm sure you've tried this.)

Long shot and not ideal - but once it has played in Win Media Player can you selct file menu and 'save media as'?

Thanks for response. The answer to your suggestion is no, I can't. I have given up and cut my losses. They have not replied to my queries so far. Maybe I can try for a refund this wk.The prob still bothers me though.
