    This may be impossible but I thought I'd ask anyway. I want to download hundreds, maybe even thousands of .wav files from a website. The problem is that they are scattered all of the site on different pages. Is there any way to search the entire root directory of the site and find all the files I nees and download them without having to navigate through the site right-clicking a thousand links? Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

    Unfortunately i don't know of any program that does this (tho one may exist)... i do remember a program that can cache an entire website, but then you'd have to download all the images and sort everything out... Your best option might be to contact the webmaster and get a ZIP of all the files, if he intends for them to be downloaded he might...

    well, with the caveat that this isn't a very "website friendly" thing to do.

    Interarchy will open a website in a FTP like interface, and let you download links/files.
