I downloaded an $.88 song from Wal-Mart, and it was swell. But I stopped there, instead of downloading another 5-10 songs, because their "Listen" feature has problems.
I remember when Amazon (which works fine for me) and even Microsoft's Media Guide had not accomodated many browser and/or network security combinations. Why Wal-Mart couldn't learn from them is beyond me, but whenever I try to "Listen" to a Wal-Mart clip, Media Player gives me a "Cannot Connect to Server" error.
The "helpful" folks at Wal-Mart's support group told me to make sure that Media Player could play .ASF files...DUH! The problem is probably security or proxy-related..but again, Media Guide, Amazon, and other on-line clip sites work fine with my browser...but not Wal-Mart.
My guess is that their sales would increase considerably if they "got" this problem, especially when you consider that my PC and home network are out-of-the-box Windows XP Professional, DSL and Netgear.
Good luck Wal-Mart...maybe some outsourced IT gurus can help you figure it out...
