Advice re MP3 download sites

  truane 17:39 12 Dec 2006


I want to be able to (legally) download MP3 music, of all genres, with the option of moving them to my Sony Ericsson Walkman. This, I think, precludes iTunes and Windows Media Store which provide AAC, M4P and WMA, etc files. I want to buy just plain MP3 music and I want the sort of selection available on iTunes.

Any suggestions, please?

Buy the cd from then copy them to you're player after burning them to you're hard drive, much better than any rip off download site we have in the uk currently

I don't understand buying digital downloads, either. You pay more or less the same for a file that is compressed and lossy and which comes hedged about with DRM. I'd rather buy a CD and rip it to my preferred format at my preferred bitrate and have the CD as backup. I've seen too many people lose all their tunes in a computer failure.

I have to agree with the others, I rip from my CDs too.

Long live the music cd far better quality than downloads as has already been stated, and less chance of getting corrupted, erased,or lost due to hard disc failure.

Thanks, folks. Point taken re being better to rip cheap CD's for MP3's. I can even then re-sell the CD's and get some cash back!.
