    okay this is getting really annoying. For the past month or so, I have not been able to download videos or audio off the internet... like whiteknights video, or RJ's MP3 thing. Before I could, and it took a few seconds... now the media player just opens up and says connecting... then a box pops up and says it cant play... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    any computer guys know how to fix this?

    I tried saving the files, but when the little downloader pops up, it doesn't even start to download or anything... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I'll probably just live without it, then when my mom gets her other computer back, I'll tell her to mention it to the computer fixers...
