I'm sorry... but I just went to your site and my computer still reads your mp3s as Mpegs-to-be-played on RealPlayer...

then that is a problem with your computer! Thats impossible though, they are mp3 files!

Maybe the problem is that when you downloaded Real Player you let it be the default Media Player for all media types. You may need to download a new media or mp3 player (such as MusicMatch or WinAmp)to change the settings...if you have no other media player, that could be why it keeps wanting to play them as Real Audio (sucks) files!

You can download MusicMatch at wwww.musicmatch.com

Ok, my LAST post on this subject, I SWEAR...

check this out...
http://www.thetimebeings.com/tbsounds.htm

Technical note: We have found that in the Internet Explorer 5.5 at times the MP3 files try to automatically stream instead of download. We suggest right clicking on the MP3 link and then choose "save target as". Again as Bill Gates and company try to kill MP3, they have rigged IE to change the file type to a .mpga extension, to remedy this, after clicking "save target as" make sure it is saving the file with a .MP3 extension and not .mpga. Also you can download the file as a *.mpga file and simply rename the file after downloading to have a *.mp3 extension.

The mp3 stream is an ActiveX plugin.

IE 6 does not try and trick you into downloading an ActiveX for mp3s, like IE 5.5 did. And, as for the *.mpga extention, I never heard of that. I never had that happen to me the entire time I used IE 5.5, which was well over a year.

As long as the file ends in *.mp3, you are good, no matter what application it opens in. The application (i.e., RealPlayer) is with your Windows registry and has nothing to do with whether you can burn it or not.

I use IE 5.5 and I've never had it change an .mp3 to something else. I have no trouble downloading, playing, burning or converting .mp3's I've downloaded with IE 5.5.

However, if I ever do have a problem, I'll keep these tips in mind. Thanks.
