    did you do this?

    download the entire torrent w bittorrent or utorrent? it extracts as it downloads. it should be playable on any media player afterward.

    that depends on what type of file you downloaded, a torrent file is just a file with trackers that allow you to download another file, what type of file that is you havent said

    im gonna assume youre using windows here

    after the file is done downloading you need to find it so you can work with it, in utorrent you simply right-click on the completed torrent and choose 'Open Containing Folder' to navigate to the folder containing the file, other torrent clients may have a similar feature

    once you find the file you downloaded note what type of file it is, if youre dealing with a compressed file, such as .rar, .zip, or .iso file, you can try winrar to extract the contents...

    if you are dealing with an audio file such as a .ape, or .flac file you can use this freeware application to convert it to a .wav file that you can burn a CD from...

    if you are dealing with .mp3 files then youre good to go, no conversion needed, for other formats you can still try foobar2000 it will convert a bunch of formats, i used it to convert my entire CD collection to .flac format, which is a lossless format that winamp supports natively, and i can stream music wirelessly to any PC in the house

    IMPORTANT: when you find your downloaded file(s), make sure your antivirus is updated and that you scan the folder that contains it before you click on anything at all, torrent files can bring malware, you need to be careful there

    In germany some people say it's like medicine. It's good against heartattack. If it is a lie - who cares?
