Instead of using IE8, I switched to Google Chrome. I could then copy the file from the cache and rename the extention to its respective one (.wma or .mp3) and it works!

Thank you once again for your persistent help.

hihi hitelev,

i know exactly where you were coming from, me too, i used to copy from the temporary internet folder and paste and rename the file to somewhere else, but ever since i switched to windows 8, i am unable to do that anymore, i have been searching high and low for chrome's temporary internet file folder, could you please advise where do you find the file?
thank you very much.
