Where are mp3 files temporarily saved to in my PC

    I know someone previously told us where mp3 files are saved to on your pc. So if you go to certain MP3 ringtone sites and play a file, you could then transfer the mp3 sample to your phone., thus free!

    Can someone let me know where these files get saved to please???


    it don't work like that, they are streamed into your pc and not stored anywhere

    go to your "temporary internet" folder arrange files by type, could be on the list somewhere

    sorry - where is my temporary internet folder located!?!

    Found this :
    These instructions explain how to find the location of Temporary Internet Files. Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) uses the Temporary Internet Files feature to store copies of Web content on the local hard drive. This feature improves network performance but can fill the hard drive with large amounts of unwanted data. IE allows many aspects of the Temporary Internet Files feature to be controlled. This page explains how to find and view the Temporary Internet Files stored on a computer.
    Difficulty: Easy
    Time Required: Here's How:
    Open either Microsoft Internet Explorer or the Windows Control Panel.

    In Microsoft Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu and choose the Internet Options... menu. In Control Panel. open the Internet Options list item. In either case, a new window titled "Internet Properties" appears.

    In the Temporary Internet Files section of the Internet Properties window, click the "Settings..." button. A new "Settings" window appears.

    In the "Settings" window, click the "View Files..." button. After a brief delay, a new Windows Explorer window appears. This window displays all of the Temporary Internet Files stored on the computer and their location on the local hard drive. The window also displays the URL where each temporary file came from.

    Yes I too suffer from this quite regular !

    listen guys, you cannot get these files on your computer, just coz you listen to the song it doesnt mean it's on your computer, normally if you go into a site that has an mp3 playing on the web page that mp3 file is stored onto your hard drive, but the company's know about this and won't let you have there ring tones for free, so they stream them into your computer, without saving them
