I wish to put about 15 music files (mp3, or WMP format) on my website...which i use dreamweaver to use...

But i want the files to be DIFFICULT to DOWNLOADE by visitors... I want to be able to PRESS PLAY on the button, and PRESS STOP on the button...

so they JUST listen, but they CANT download.... (perhaps opening up as a windows media player file?)

What ways can this be acheived? any website companies which help this?

....step by step flash instructions? any tutorial websites? the name of this process?

Get back, with advice...

search for things like "media stream" or "streaming media".
i'm not experienced here but you might look at something like shoutcast or icecast to start.

Definitely try Shoutcast and Icecast and I recommend you try both and see which one is working better for you.
