    I had this problem the other night. I had to have my DH do it for me.
    You download them as torrents, using a program that can then translate it. He went to a site called utorrent. Then you can listen to it from there. I use itunes to listen to it eventually.

    It is quite confusing, but once you get past how to download it, it is quite easy.

    Actually you're not "translating" anything. Here's the deal...

    Mousebits stores their files in "torrents". Torrents are essentially maps for a program such as "Bit Torrent" to use to find their way to the bits and pieces that make up the file(s) and download them. Once you download a torrent you open it with said application and the application goes out, finds the files you want, and begins to download them. Once they are downloaded they'll be in their actual correct format, n this case, an MP3 (in most cases - some files on mousebits are .flac), and you can use them however you wish. So... if you broke it out into steps...

    1) Download the torrent file
    2) Open the torrent with a torrent downloader (i.e. BitTorrent)
    3) BitTorrent (or uTorrent or whatever app you use) begins to download the MP3s you selected
    4) The download completes and in your "downloads" folder (specified in the application preferences) you'll now see the MP3(s) you were downloading
    5) Close BitTorrent (else it uses you as a "seed" to feed the others downloading the same file and will take a bit of bandwith from your connection)

    The last step is optional. Mousebits actually encourages you to seed the files to help with quicker downloads etc. They also keep track of who seeds and who doesn't and it makes your profile look bad if you don't.

    I'm a big mousebits user and a torrent fan so if you need any help just let me know.

    Thanks Jenn!
    It is kind of nice to know in normal people english what it was I was doing rather than my DH using his computer geek language and just doing it for me.

    I think tonight I will see if I can find Wishes and Boo To You.

    HAH! Yes well... it was work for me to put it in "normal people english". I'm a techy so I was actually having to translate for myself. LOL!!
