How To: Download mp3's from the internet

I don't know if this has been covered or not, but I recently found a way to download mp3's from the stock ie browser on unlocked wp7 devices that have TouchXplorer.

When you normally download a mp3 it will just stream, What I noticed is that if the mp3 is in a zip file, you can use Touchxplorer file manager to browse My Device/Application Data/Volatile/Zip View/ and see whatever song that was played from that zip file in the internet browser after the download finishes. All you have to do is copy and paste it from that location to My Documents/Zune/Content and pick a folder to paste the chosen file. It will not be viewable from the music and Videos app, but it will be perminantly stored on the device to play from the TouchXplorer.

I noticed this when downloading the new Pusha T mixtape from a trusted website and the songs were in a zip folder. I clicked on the zip file to display it's contents. When I clicked on one of the songs, it was totally downloaded and did not need to buffer before playing. I opened TouchXplorer and found the zip view folder in Application data/Volatile. This Volatile folder would normally be empty after a fresh boot. After downloading the zip file and opening each song inside of it that I wanted saved, the data from the zip file is cached in a folder that says Zip View. Some simple copy and paste work stored the mp3's in the Zune/Content/0100/???

The mp3's can then survive a soft reset, the just can't be viewed from the Music and Videos app. Hope this info can be useful to someone out there. I'm sure it will be.

Or a more superior way to do it is convert said .mp3 file to .wma pro format then sync to phone from PC. The file will be smaller in size and have better sound quality. This works with wp7 devices with NoDo update installed as opposed to the above.

Syncing to a computer and downloading on the phone are TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS. I think you missed the point. WP7 already has the ability to sync with a pc and that has never been a issue. It can sync with Zune or as a removable disc if your registry edit the pc your syncing with. Your way is NOT superior. It's just different. The purpose of this is to be able to download mp3's from the internet permanently on the device itself without the need of a pc. I know it may seem foreign to a geeker to be away from a pc for a substantial period of time, but this is the real world and people want this ability on the go and to not feel ball and chained to a computer. I'm just trying to find a solution. Either help or not.

Re: How To: Download mp3's from the internet

I am trying to help. The wp7 devices that have the 7389-90 builds (NoDo update) Do not have the ability to unlock so I suggested an alternative for those people.

Re: How To: Download mp3's from the internet

thanks for this i made a thread on xda asking if anyone figured a way to save mp3s with touchxplorer that u download now whenever verizon releases the trophy and they release a unlocker for the nodo update ill be giving this a try. i wish there was a way to update the zune library to add mp3's and files u download on the go without the need for a computer

thats what pisses me off about wp7 everybody is not at a comptuer 24/7 i used my touch pro 2 to download new albums mixtapes and songs all the time without my computer and it was simple and i could update my library on the phone in windows media player no problem. i hope they can remedy this in the future it seems like android is the only platform that can do this right now

If you were unlocked with the 7004 or 7008 builds and upgraded to NoDo, it seems to keep it unlocked as long as you do the hack to prevent it from relocking when connected to Zune.
