- You'll need appropriate software/hardware such as Windows Media Player or Quicktime to listen to mp3 files on your computer. If you do not have a media player currently install one.
- Using a streaming media player like Windows Media Player or Quicktime will allow you to listen to the MP3 file as it downloads. Other media players may require you to download the entire MP3 file before playing it.
- Be patient as most of the audio MP3 files are very large and may take awhile to download.
