    Ok, I have a MAC & i can't seem to be able to download anything - I get a message:
    "the document could not be opened because the application program that created it could not be found. Could not find a translation extension with appropriate translators"

    I click on the download button & when its complete, I get an icon on my desktop. I double click it & that's the message I get. I have always used PC's so I am in new territory.

    what type of file is it? if it's an .exe or any other PC filetype that can't be translated by mac then you're out of luck

    Sounds like you need a program to deal with downloaded files (i.e. process them so they're either decoded or uncompressed or both)...

    Stuffit Expander is a good do-all program that should be able to handle anything with the following extensions:

    .hqx, .sit, .sea, .bin, .dmg, .img, .uu, .zip, .gz, etc... it does most compression/encoding algorythms.

    You can download Stuffit from http://www.versiontracker.com - do a search there and it'll come up.

    Hope this helps! What was the file, anyway?

    ^^^^This is a work computer, right...........

    Problem may be a Firewall, but I don't know shit about this stuff. They may not allow you to download off the internet for security reasons. ;)

    Kazaa is not supported for Macs, so you won't be able to do anything there. was it an mp3 or an exe?

    you're trying to open a file that has no application associated with the type. what OS are you running - OS9 or OSX?

    It was an exe I believe. It says mac OS 9.1. Oh well I probably can't download because its for PC's. that's ok. Will try something else.

    use audiogalaxy for music if that's what you wanted the program for. download sputnix from versiontracker.com

    and, yes and .exe is for windows only and can't be run on a mac. you should also upgrade to os x.
