Frequently Asked Questions
1.) I'm using FireFox. Everytime I click on "DOWNLOAD", it opens up the browser with a Quicktime player inside and streams the audio. I want to download it, how can I do this?
Open your Quicktime Player and click on Edit > Preferences > QuickTime Preferences. On this screen, please uncheck "Play movies automatically" and "Save movies in disk cache".
Then click on the MIME Settings button. Uncheck "Streaming - Streaming Movies" and "MP3 - MPEG layer III movies and streams". Close Quicktime and all your browsers. Re-open your browser, you should be prompted with a download box.
2.) I want to put the songs I've downloaded on either CD or MP3 player so I can listen to it on-the-go. How I can I do that?
The tracks that are available for download are un-restricted MP3 files. If you transfer them directly to an MP3 compatible player, they will play back.
Also, there are some modern conventional CD players now that will play them back as well.
Converting these MP3 files to play back on a car CD player is easy, but you need to go through one more step. The most common application used to do this is Apple's iTunes program – which works on PCs and Macs –and is free of charge.
You would download that program onto your computer and "import" the Miles Davis tracks.
Once they are recognized by iTunes, you create something called a "playlist" which is like a folder for playing them back. Each hour will need to be in its own playlist, because it will need to be on its own CD because it is one hour long. Then, you select "burn playlist to CD" and insert a blank CD.
It sounds more complicated than it is. And after you do this once, you’ll see how easy it is.
