Downloading Files

Downloading Files in the Archive

When you click on the download link for a given file, one of two things may happen, depending on the settings in your computer. On most computers, you will see a box asking you where you want to save the file. Check to see that you're downloading to a appropriate place (such as your desktop) and click "ok".

On other computers, left-clicking the "download mp3" link will cause your media player to start up. It will then begin playing the file from our server rather than downloading it. If you wish to download instead, turn off your media player and RIGHT click on the download link. You will see a drop down menu. On it will be the instruction "Save Target As" or "Save Link As". Left click on this and your computer will prepare for the download.

If you wish to listen without downloading, you may do so by right clicking on the download link, then selecting "Properties" from the drop-down menu. Copy the URL that appears there into your audio player and the file will play without being downloaded.

Uses of MP3 Files

MP3 files may be copied to MP3 players that have enough memory or hard disk space. They may then be played anywhere you can take your MP3 player. They may also be burned onto a read-writeable CD, if you have the proper disk drive and burning software in your computer. You can burn two or more Dreamlands in MP3 format onto a CD. These CDs can be played in any CD player that is able to play MP3 files. In general, a CD player that can play MP3 files will say so on the case. Older CD players do not have this capability. Many modern stereos and DVD players can play MP3 disks.

If you wish to play Dreamland in your car, and your car's CD will not play MP3 files, you can get a dongle such as an Irock that broadcasts your MP3 player's or MP3-capable portable CD player's output onto any nearby FM radio. You can purchase an Irock from Radio Shack for $25-$35.
