There is, however, a way around this, if you feel like opening up the playlist.

Here's what I think is happening. The Winamp play list file is being used to call up the actual .mp3 file. In other words, the Winamp play list file, (which is going to be either a .m3u or a .pls play list file) was written in such a way that when ever it's called up by the visitor to the sight, it uses information written in it about exactly where the actual .mp3 file is on the server and calls it up. But, all you have access to, in such a case as this, is the play list file and not the actual file itself. Therefore, it's not a problem with your computer or Jaws; rather, it's determined by how ever the site owner wants you to have access. In some cases you may have access to the mp3 file directly; but, in other cases, not. HTH.

When I select "save target as" the file I am told I will download is a winamp playlist and not the MP3 file. When I go ahead and let winamp play the file I am told it is an MP3 file.
How do I change this to download the MP3 file and not a winamp laylist file?
