Re: NEWBIE question

The files you download here are are not the same as MP3 files. They are compressed into a lossless format, usually FLAC or SHN. You need to have something to decode these. Winamp has plugins for both. You can get the SHN plugin at I forgot where to get the FLAC plugin for Winamp, but if you google it you should fine it easily. Or for FLAC you can use dBPoweramp.

You're getting mixed up because you're expecting the files you download here to play without doing anything special. They are specialized formats and don't play without the proper decoder.
