    If the files you downloaded had the .php extension then 1 of 2 things happened. Either for whatever reason you just downloaded a php page, text file with php code.
    or
    You did get the audio file and all you need to do is change the extension from .php to .mp3. Simple file rename and you're good to go.

    honestly, it was probably the first one. often times, you have to click on the link and then wait for the "Save As..." dialog.

    in these cases, the link isn't a direct link to the music, but rather to a page of code that makes sure you have permission to download the file. then when the code runs and confirms that you're logged in and have permission, it pops up the "Save" box. if you right-click and save these links, you won't download the audio file, you'll download the output of the code!

    in fact, try opening this 'audio file' in a text editor like notepad and see if you can read it. :hs:

    Then he would be happy with it since he wouldn't know the difference (assuming he isn't looking at any sort of visualization based off the file).
