How come I cannot find my downloads when I try to add music to iTunes?

Q: When I download songs in Windows 7, a menu pops up that shows everything that has been downloaded since I last cleared the list. It will show there that lets say Paul Simon has been downloaded. I can right click it and it will let me see the file the download is contained in.

Always, downloads go into a rather obscure downloads file gotten to by working

When I go to downloads in this way the songs do indeed show up….Paul Simon.

When I then go to iTunes and click
File
add folder to library

I then am taken to a screen that looks much like the one I started with in the start menu BUT when I go through the

Suddenly Paul Simon is not in there! But if I go back and do it the first mentioned way . he is there. I followed the directions on this site for revealing hidden folders. .didn’t help.

Any one got any ideas for how I can get ol Paul to show up when approaching a file from iTunes?

 
 

How can I download streaming videos from the Internet?

Q: I just paid $463.95 for a three related informational/instructional products online. The sales letter describes the products as downloadable. The links to the two upgrade (upsells) say “Download…” and the name of the upgrade.

The first product consists of MP3 files only, and they are downloadable. The second consists of 11 videos, each accompanied by a PDF file, although it was advertised as videos only. The third is eight videos only. The PDFs are downloadable. The videos are not. While I can watch the videos online, if I want to have them available for reference (and I do), I will have to pay $114 a month for a subscription to the web site.

When I right click on the videos, a menu that says “Settings,” “Global Settings” and “About Adobe Flash Player 10” pops up. I assume this means the files are in Adobe Flash format.

I could ask for my money back, but I’d rather get what I paid for.

Is there any way to download these files or, as an alternative, capture them from the screen?

I’m running a Dell laptop with Windows XP.
