Default Downloading mp3 music

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone please tell me what sites ok for downloading music. I am about to sign up to lime wire because I heard it was ok. Is there any other programs that are any good or better that lime wire? Sorry for the noobish question. Thank you in advance!

Excellent. Have fun stealing music.

My suggestion is to download iTunes, pay for your music, and download it legally.

yeah limewire is used for stealing music. Just buy your music, their are plenty of options from iTunes to Yahoo and many others.

If your asking for this type of advice in the forum then its definitely not a good idea to steal music. Your just asking for trouble.

Thanks test54, I'm looking to hear what different programs there are that are legal to download music from. I will check out yahoo and itunes. Is there any more? Also, is there anything else I would need to download music other that one of these programs? Or is it pretty cut and dry?

It's pretty simple man. Just hook it up and transfer the music files like you would on any other MP3 player.

I thought I read a post that said itunes needs to be converted to go on a BB. Is the a big deal to convert the mp3 from itunes or is there an easier way for this?

Be careful on Limewire. Scan everything you download there with your anti-virus before opening the file. I run an anti-spyware forum and we get lots of people who are infected from using Limewire and other file sharing networks. Some miscreants deliberately distribute malicious files designed to steal your passords or worse.

Sorry, I'm a little rabid about this because I've seen what happens to people.

It's illegal to tell you how to bypass iTunes DRM, but it can be done. MiniRingtone from Simprit says it can convert songs from iTunes to ringtones, but if the songs are protected, it doesn't work. At least that was my experience. It's a great app, though.
