Hi, I am trying to download this file
http://sounddesign.hauntedhouserecor...%20Samples.rar

from this site
http://sounddesign.hauntedhouserecor...sterkicks.html

It is 10 free drum samples. When I click on the download I should get an rar file but I just get a page of code. I have spoken to the bloke who's site it is, and he is not sure why I am having this problem?

Any boffins know the answer?

right click on the link and choose save link to download the rar file

Then download UnRarX to turn that rar file in to the wav files you need

UnRarX - Mac OS X RAR Extraction Utility
