Done, the last one should have finished uploading by the time you read this. See the front page for the "most recent" list, they should all be on it.

Just wanted to let you know....on Super R-Type, several tracks have what appear to be hiccups during playback. They sound like squeaks or something while the song is playing. I don't know what may have caused it. Is there any way to find out and redo that one? So you can see what i mean, try the track named Solo Sortie. It starts doing it fairly quickly. Thanks!

Very strange. I went back and tried playing it again and now the hiccups have stopped. Maybe it has to do the way it downloads. No need to redo them i guess. Just a weird fluke.

Ok, i haven't downloaded Batman yet but here is a list of all the songs i found those hiccups on:
Super R -Type
  Solo Sortie
  Counterattack '91
  A Submerging Titan
  R Dance
  National Anthem of the Bydo Empire
  Return of the Creature
  Try Harder
  Escape from the Bydo Empire 2
  R Type Medley

Super Return of the Jedi
  Theme of the Jedi
  Forests of Endor

Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts
  Mongolian Death Worm's Third Cousin
  Ghoul's Stomach
  Hydra
  Ice Forest
  Sardius

As i said, all these, when played here on the website sound fine. Once downloaded though, they have hiccup sounds in them. I don't know what is causing it. Help!!

I think it's what you're playing them with. If I remember correctly the audio files are actually 32000Hz and not 44100Hz like most audio which shouldn't be a problem, but some audio players just make a mess of it and create weird sound artifacts. Let me know if you still have issues with something reliable like VLC.

I've just tried Solo Sortie on Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC-HC) and it didn't have any issues or hiccups.

It's because NES audio was only 32000Hz, recording it at 44100Hz would just make the files larger with no sound quality difference.

Well i was using iTunes set to import in AAC quality but then i also tried importing it on Apple Lossless and it still didn't work. Even the mp3 version that is first downloaded has that noise. Other than getting another player, is there anything i can do to fix it?

Unfortunately not, the player/converter you're using simply doesn't work properly :( Also these are MP3 files so I really wouldn't recommend converting them to AAC as they'll just degrade in quality. iTunes should be able to play them as in (assuming it doesn't hicup like the other player you're using).
