    You'll need some sort of midi player on your computer (I guess most have Windows Media Player at least, since that's a default install for Windows). If you've got a player, then check the filetype associations for it - it might not be recognising the file type and therefore, isn't opening when you click on the respective links.

    Same difference - check the file associations with WMP.

    I pressed select all for file types so it should play all of them but it still doesn't....?

    Does the program open up and make it look as if something should be playing? It may still be that you have not selected a valid MIDI Out device in the multimedia audio properties control panel.

    Start > Run > "control mmsys.cpl" >
    audio properties > MIDI > Output >
    Microsoft GM S/W Synth

    Try other MIDI out devices you may have. Some synths are better in quality than others.
