    Hi :)

    I need a little help - I go to midi sites and try to download the midi to my desktop by clicking 'Save target as...' (WinXP) and usually it works, but when I listen to it later I get to hear only about 1/6 of the song! :confused2
    I used to have Win95 and everything was ok there.
    I add the midis to favorites and listen to them from Explorer... :(

    thanks :)

    I use win98 and Netscape browser and usually right click and save link target as to a folder, it saves usually as a midi file though odd times is doesn't so I just change the file extension and it works. Use winamp to play it back. Hope this helps.

    check the size of the file before you download it.they might be just short samples (demo).

    yeah i think its demo. myself, i check the length of the orginal song & since i've been dealing with midi files for quite some time now, i already know how many KB to expect for a midi file before i download it.
