    I've been trying to download Windows Media Player for my mac and it won't work. I click on the link to start the download and the downloads window opens up with the status bar but when it is finished downloading nothing happens. When I click on the download Text Edit opens up with a whole bunch of unreadable ********. This happens every time I try to download something actually. Any ideas?

    Eek. I wouldn't even use WMP.

    Why are you not using iTunes?

    the same thing happens when I try and download flip4mac. I'm using WMP player because I'm trying to watch video from mlb.tv.

    It sounds like you've managed to associate .dmg files with TextEdit. Right-click on the file that you downloaded, go to Open with, and make sure that it's set to DiskImageMounter.
