    Hello! I have downloaded from internet, legally, 2 music albums each 120
    mb each! However, they are in html format and cannot manage to extract
    the files that are in it! I am sure that there is someway to take the
    tracks from these files but I knew that html are internet files! When I
    double click on these html files which are supposed to have the music in
    it, automatically I am forwarded to a web page that never loads and
    moreover the PC freezes!
    Please help!:sleepy:

    Open the html files in a text editor and find the resources for the data
    files.

    A html file is just a plain text file. No data can be stored in one.
    It can provide a link to a file, of course.

    Something's wrong here. An HTML file cannot contain music, though it
    may very well have links to *.mp3 files or other sound files. On the
    other hand, it's EXTREMELY unlikely that any HTML file would be 120MB.

    So you need to figure out what those files are. Are the extensions
    *.html or something else? Exactly how did you obtain them?

    There are at least two ways of storing data in a file. One is to use MIME
    like in Email messages (mht is the extension). Second is to encode the data
    in the link which I've seen done.

    I would guess that they are really misnamed audio files. I would try
    renaming them to *.mp3 or *.zip or whatever format they were expected
    to be in.

    The 'file' command would be useful for ascertaining what they really are.
    Oh - that's only *nix.

    Yeah, that's where I was heading. I was trying to get OP to supply
    enough information to figure out just what the files are.
