Can you zip the files then link to the zip file? That will force a download.
I know this isn't what you want to hear, but most websites just give the user instructions:
"To save the file, right-click and 'Save As', 'Save Target As', or 'Save Link As'"
They are actually audios and videos. Right clicking won't give me an option to download.
I also tried zipping the files individually but that didn't help either. Instead, it opens a path to the folder where I have the file stored with an option to extract the compressed file. Maybe because I am still working directly from my desktop. I'll try to upload and see what happens.
Hey Mike_Watt, this is what the forum is all about. Trying to assist the best way we can; meaning, I really do appreciate every and any contribution.
Let me make few corrections. As for Make_Watt's suggestion, I wasn't getting the option to download the file when I right-clicked because I was using a "Flash Button" instead of an actual link or an image. However, after I changed the button's format, I am now able to right-click and have the option to "Save Target As...". Thanks again.
Unfortunately, I am still not able to download the audio using the compressed format. Whenever I click on the link/button, I am taken to the folder hosting the file and I am given the option to extract the file(s). I guess I may be doing something wrong.
Can you provide a link to your website so we can see what's happening?

If you are previewing this locally without a web server, then that is expected behavior.
Thanks guys. It works.
I had the problem because I was previewing locally without a web server.
For media, Wimpy also have download functionality.
