cannot download/play free mp3 from dotmusic

  Cosmic Guerilla 14:32 25 Oct 2003

I am running XP and have Windows Media Player 8.0 and RealOne v 2.0 build

I have been trying to download 3 free Raveonettes tracks from the dotmusic site at click here

Unfortunately, if I right click on the links on the page Internet Explorer attempts to save them at HTML, if I save as All Files I still can't read/play them.

I have tried right clicking and then saving them using Flashget. This saves the files as MP3 files but they are only 27K each so that doesn't seem right?

If I then try to play the files Windows Media Player gives the following error when I try to play the MP3: Cannot play back this file, the format is not supported.

RealOne says A General Error has occurred. File Format cannot find MPEG file header. This may not be an MPEG file.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a problem on the dotmusic site?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Think there must be a problem with the site - just tried all download methods with the same results as you.

Thanks leo49, for checking that out for me. It's good to know that the problem wasn't on my side.

I subsequently got some 30 second samples from the Raveonettes home site so was able to get an idea of what they sounded like before going to see them at a gig here in Dublin at the weekend.
