You may wish to disable your eMusic Download Manager
in order to download directly from your browser. Once the eMusic
Download Manager is disabled you will not be able to download a full album
in one click.
To disable the eMusic Download Manager:
1. Log in to your eMusic account and click on the "Account"
link in the upper right of the eMusic homepage.
2. Under Download Options, click on the link entitled
"Change Download Manager".
3. Click the button to "Disable the eMusic Download Manager"
(if the button says "Enable eMusic Download Manager",
then you have already disabled it).
Now when you attempt to download a track, you should
be prompted to save the MP3 file directly from your
browser, just as you would when downloading any other
file on the Internet.
Please note that you can redownload your songs without losing credits.
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope this helps resolve your
