Q: I recently downloaded several songs from Pure Volume that have .php extensions. I want to put them onto my iPod but couldn’t import them into iTunes or convert them to MP3 files.


A: These are not music files; PHP is a language used to dynamically generate web pages from a database, and Pure Volume uses PHP links which should point to the appropriate MP3 file links. We tried downloading some files, and had no problem. You should probably try again, or check the way your web browser downloads linked files.
