Oh, also, for the love of Pete everyone, please include a .m3u file in your mix?
Can somebody confirm that my last mix did download as MP3s? My computer "conveniently" shows all of my audio files as windows media player filesThey were indeed MP3s. I think what you're seeing there is program association - in other words MP3s are associated with Windows Media Player. If you use another app to play MP3s then all you need to do (assuming you're using XP) is right click on an MP3 file and select Properties. In the Properties box you'll see Open With: and a button next to it labelled Change - click it and then select your favorite MP3 player. Now just click OK and OK again and you should be fine.
I don't even know what an .m3u file is. Would Pete know? Is that why we need to love him?Ooopps, forgot this. An M3U is simply a playlist file and most apps that play MP3s should allow you to create one. Check your MP3 player and see if it creates playlist files.
