How come everytime I want to play the MP3 examples from the web pages, they don't work? I get this from the window's player:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct.

I can't get any of the examples to play, I don't know what to do. Are they broke?

thanks.

I assume you're talking about the examples on the Guitar Noise lessons pages. I just tried an old one and a recent one and both worked fine for me. Do you have one in particular that doesn't work?

Also I can download the files. It seems a problem with his/her computer.

Thanks both of you, I now know I prolly have a problem with my computer. I just don't know what it is. And yeah, it's with the audio examples in the tabs of guitarnoise. I guess I need to check some of the proxy settings, I just don't know what would cause this as far as a setting on my computer.

Anyway, thank you for the comments. At least I know it's not guitarnoise.

Try this, right click on the MP3 icon and save the file to your desktop. Then double click on it and see if it opens. If it does, then the problem is most likely not Windows Media Player. Also, what kind of connection to the internet do you have? Broadband or Dial-up?

It's certainly advisable to do this anyway to save GN the bandwidth. :)

Nevertheless, do try downloading the file then opening with your preferred media application.

If you're having trouble streaming it then it's probably a browser plug-in fault as a best guess.

Good luck.
