Online music: Can't hear it!

I dont know what the problem is, but everytime I try to click a link to listen to audio, I get the following error:

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network. If you typed a path, verify that it is correct. If the problem persists, the server might not be available."

Now whats weird is.....if I copy the shortcut, open up windows media player, goto "open URL", paste the shortcut link, and open it, then it works!

I've tried disabling my firewall and that didn't work. I've upgraded to the latest edition of Windows Media Player and that didnt work. I've tried other programs such as QuickTime and that didn't work. Any suggestions? Anyone else experience this?
