We have a media file, say test.wma on our server. when the user clicks on a link to http://www.example.com/test.wma it opens up in Windows media player. We want the user to be able to save the file to disk as if they clicked on an .exe file or an unknown extention.

Is it possible to do this?

A user may right-click on your video link and choose "Save Target As..." (in IE) to save the video. I believe other browsers also have similar options for this.
