    How are you attempting to download the media? Though Google play music or are you clicking on links to download mp3s?

    I have no idea. I'm trying to replicate your issue so I can try some solutions.
    I opened my internet app, not chrome. I went to mp3.com, selected free music , folk (I'm old and like folk), clicked the down arrow next to the song I wanted to download and it asked me what app I wanted to use. I picked Internet and it downloaded. The download was listed in my drag down menu. I clicked on it and was asked what app I wanted to use to play it. I picked Sound Player and it played.
    Am I doing anything differently than you? Can you tell me where in this process your issue happened?
    I'm just trying to better define the issue so I can be of more assistance.
