    Hi,

    I have Windows XP Pro. I would like to record an audio lesson from an internet class to my computer, but I have no idea how I can do this. Can someone give me some guidance?

    Thank you very much.

    What audio format is it?
    In many instances you can retrieve it from your browsers cache.
    Just clear your browsers cache prior to going to the site so it will be easier to find.

    Thanks for your response, Clint.

    The recording is using Windows Media Player (but I am not sure of the version). How do I access and clear the browser cache?

    I am using IE8 and Windows Media Player 11.

    Thank you.

    To clear browser cache in IE:
    Open IE browser, go to tools, internet options. Select "delete".
    Clear the browser cache prior to going to the website you want to collect the audio file.
    Listen to the audio file in it's entirety prior to retrieving it from the cache.

    To see the files in the cache in IE:
    Open IE browser, go to tools, internet options, settings, then select "view files".


    This may, or may not work. You should also check to ensure this does not violate any copyrights.

    Thank you Clint. I guess it was by happenstance that I found a solution. I

    (1) right clicked on the Media Player icon,
    (2) left clicked on Properties,
    (3) selected the File tab,
    (4) and there, under Location at the bottom of the File tab page, was the URL that played the recording.

    Now, any time I want to play that particular recording for review, I just execute the URL.

    Your instructions on how to clear and view the browser cache for data retrieval I have saved. I did not know how to do that, so your instructions were especially valuable to me. Again, thank you very much.
