    I had the MB cash for a kar file I wanted. So I carefully clicked on it, and it said - 'are you sure you want to spend $25MB?'. I was so, I clicked yes, and it opened a new window.... with nothing in it.

    But my MB cash still got depleted by $25MB.

    Now I don't have enough to do it again. How can I stop this from happening??
    I don't want to have to keep wasting MB on files that I don't get.

    Please read the FAQ. Reload the page on which the file resides. Right click on the link and select 'save target as'. Save the file.

    I've tried that. It doesn't give me the option.
    I'm normally quite computer literate - so I've tried all the things I thought I should do.

    The text doesn't look act like a link - though it is underlined. The only thing you can get it to do is come up with the box asking if you want to spend your MB, and that appears when you click on the text with your left mouse button. The right button gives me no useful options.

    Any more ideas....

    (I did read the FAQ - but couldn't find the answer to my problem./

    After you purchase the file you will discover that after you reload the page, that the underlined text is now a blue link. If it isn't then you didn't purchase the file. You cannot be double charged for the same file.

    i'm having the same problem. it's underlined in blue, but when i right click to save target as, it saves as a .html file since it links to another site instead of the MIDI itself.

    Either you get the whole MIDI or you get nothing. 47 seconds was the total time for the track, unmanipulated. You should know, it's fake dough, bro. Gotta go.

    you can guess by the # of bytes in the files (as listed) Whether each file is "complete" or not - but its only a guess. If you've bought a "demo" in the wrong forumdo 2 things... #1 hit the report button and ASK the mods you report it to to "move this post to MIDI demos please".... #2 in the meantime leave a comment like "so and so's post contains only a demo, does anyone have the full file?"

    You're outta luck this time... sorry... but this board is run by the integrety of its memberage. We can't 'catch' every idiot who loads a file to the wrong place as they do it... but you, as a member, can keep others from having the same issues.

    Don't worry guys, I had this same problem for ages, after you click on the file that you want to download and after it takes your $25, if it doesn't let you download, click on the refresh button on the toolbar of your page and it refresh itself and the link should work, then save the link sa you normally would. There you go, this should work for you......
