Re: Recording of me
first of all, change those settings or (even better) download Mozilla and use that for internet.
As for a cd ripper, I use YAMP. It works well for the little I ever use it.
or you "could" get a copy of Cool Edit and re-record the cd on your computer. But I think that's over your head since you can't fix security settings.
I had a copy of "stream anywhere" by sonic foundry. It allows a person to save a file in a format that allows streaming from a website. Really handy tool to have laying around.
but for gods sake, fix it so you can download things. It's really hard to get a cd ripper, or anything, when you can't!
