Using our Store:
1) System Requirements (Back to Top)
To play music downloads from our site, your computer should have a media player application installed and have the components necessary to support such a player.
These are the minimum requirements:
Hardware and Software Requirements and Suggestions
Windows 98 SE, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OSX. Unfortunately,
Mac does not support encrypted WMA and WMV download files.
Updated browser that supports 128-bit encryption ("Cipher Strength"), such as:
Internet Explorer 5.01 or later (note that some operating systems and versions, such as Windows NT 2000 with IE 5 and 6 for example, do not support 128-bit encryption)
Mozila Firefox 1.0 or later
Netscape 7 or later
Safari (see format restrictions above)
A 233 megahertz (MHz) processor (such as an Intel Pentium II or Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) processor) or faster

Supported Players and Jukeboxes
Make sure your computer has a supported player installed before you start downloading. The player's company website will provide you with details about hardware and software requirements when you download and install a media player. Please ensure you are operating the latest version provided by your choice player for best results.
Windows Media Player (www.windowsmedia.com)
Real Player (www.real.com)
iTunes (www.apple.com) supports MP3 downloads only (will not support secure WMA and WMV)
Also: Different combinations and configurations of players, browsers, and operating systems behave very differently. You may need to research each application's settings before you are able to play your downloads. For example, it helps to make sure that only one player on your computer is the default player for audio files.
If you are having trouble configuring your media player, please consult their help documentation.
