    midi file

    I have a friend who is trying to SAVE a midi file from the internet - when he right clicks and chooses SAVE TARGET AS, he is not given the option to save it as a MIDI file - he is given the option of a MEDIA CLIP or ALL FILES. Then when he tries to play the file he has saved, he gets an error message saying "MMSYSTEM281. This file could not be played. Check the filename or install a driver that supports this type of file."

    HELP!!!

    Perhaps the file is being saved correctly, but not given the correct extension. He could manually change the extension to .mid or resave it from the net and enter the filename plus extension in the Save As box. This of course assumes that he has a MIDI player installed... I wonder what extension appears when MEDIA CLIP is selected?

    Potentially simple solution - install one or two extra media players and see if they play it (ie Real, Quicktime, Media Player etc). Manually open the file in each one. Don't forget Windows Sound Recorder. Also, try downloading it with a different browser.
