Download multiple files in one request

I got a list of files to download from a server.
Download links look like:


When I click the above link, it opens up the File Dialog to allow me to open or save the file.

I need to iterate through a list of such recordingid's and download all files in a one go (as a single zipped file or multiple files).

I'm looking for something like:

List<string> recordings = GetListOfRecordingIDs();

foreach (string recID in recordings)
     String strUrl = "http://my-server/record/download.cgi?recordingid=" + recID;
     //Code to download the list of files(strUrl) here;

i would suggest the folowing ....

You have The List of FileId's you want to download.
I would suggest the following .

Demand the safe location at the user (only use the directoryName)
Loop through the FileId's
*   Call the Method of RolandDeschain
    *   SAVE_PATH = the retreived directoryName  + the FileName for the current FileId
    *   URL = Your URL using the current FileId

I have used RolandDesichain method and looped through as per poor_begger's note and got it all done.
