How do I download music from alt.binaries.multimedia.disney?


New Member
Forgive me for asking such a simple question. How do I save the mp3's posted to alt.binaries.multimedia.disney? I've got an mp3 player, but simply saving the messages and changing the file extension doesn't seem to work.

Thanks very much,

It really depends on what newsreader you are using. Outlook Express requires that all parts of a message be highlighted, then right click and choose Combine and Decode. XNews and Newsshark (and I think Forte's news products [the Agest series]) combine the message parts into one easy to download header.

Here is a site that explains the process a little bit better

I use XNews and have no trouble.

Hope this helps!

I have a Mac, and Outlook Express is unable to "combine and decode".... Is there anyone out there with a Mac who can give me some advice on how to "combine and decode" mp3s from the newsgroup?



Forget about OE for dowloading binaries... and use MT-NewsWatcher (it's free!) instead

There are two versions of MT-NewsWatcher available, one for Mac OS 8/9 and one for Mac OS X.

Both are great apps.
