Ok.. I'm at work and cannot download these MP3s from a website... Website will not allow you to save the MP3, only to stream it, and I have trouble with the proxy here at work going to any site other than an http site. Can someone please try grab these MP3s for me, save them, and e-mail them to me in an attachment... I will PM you my e-mail address at work. I would greatly appreciate it!

There's something up with MMS:// that won't let you direct save. I haven't done any extensive searching, but as yet I haven't found a way to directly save anything from an MMS:// address.

I have also done searching on stuff like this also and have found no way. It kinda pisses me off. What you can do is to play it through your sound card and record it with something. I use the Microsoft Media encoder that comes with XP. It will save it as a .wma file, just open it up in Goldwave and encode it to mp3. You dont get the same sound quality as the original but it works none the less. I do this with streaming radio all the time if I know a song is coming up that I want to keep.

No other posters were flamed, ridiculed, persecuted, belittled, berated, judged or otherwise in the making of the above-posted reply. It is with respect all are asked to observe this and to provide the same courtesy bestowed upon those who have posted and those who will post. Yada, Yada, doublespeak and so forth!

I did find a website today for an application called Streaming Download Project. Looks like this program records the stream from a Microsoft Media Server site for you...If you are interested, here's the link:
