3:15 pm - Works for google.com, other engines untested.

thecause
learned this trick from macserialjunkie.com :

type in the google.com query box:

"name" intitle:"index of" "extension of type"

remove the quotes, accept from index of

press enter.

examples:
beatles intitle:"index of" mp3
star wars intitle:"index of" avi

to find elusive file types that are difficult to find with a regular search.

*JUST AddeD:

-inurl:(htm|html|php) intitle:"index of" +"last modified" +"parent directory" +description +size +(mp3) "Nirvana"
