Kinfisher, There is a (controversial) site click here which offers music downloads in various formats.

If you google this website, you'll came across lots of debates/discussions regarding whether this site is legal or not.

Recent developpments include: you cant pay with credit card anyloger and I think in Danemark a server doesn,t accept requests anylonger to connect to this site...

As always, get informed and decide for yourself.

iTunes and other such sites have DRM which means you are limited if you plan to use it for mp3 players as to which ones you can use it on. The best advice is to buy music in the shops or online as itunes and other sites tend to come no where near a reasonable price when compared to the physical medium of a CD the box and booklet.

With a CD if your computer has a problem you can restore the music. With iTunes you have to back up and that takes time and it can still go wrong and then you have to buy the song again. Pay for sites dont represent value for money overall in my opinion.

I have downloaded music in the past but it a pain.
I recently transfeered music files from my old pc to my new one only to find they won't play without re-downloading them due to licencing issues. The tracks still won't play as they say I don't have the licence. I'm currently trying to resolve this issue with Virgin digital.

None of these FileSharing sites are illegal, they are on PCA downloads click here You can however download illegal content. Which you shouldn't do, of course.
