Someone in this group must have some info on this. Where can you legally download MP3 music....I'm even willing to pay a monthly fee.

Started downloading music off of Limewire a couple of years ago. Worked fine but that site ended up being full of viruses and spys. Had to get off that site before more damage to the PC.

A friend of mine has used Rapsody in the past but is running into the same type of problems that I had on Limewire.

I've looked into i-Tunes, but it looks like they don't have MP3 files??? Anyone know of a site you can pay to download tunes?

I am convinced the recording industry is behind this, when you look at your legal bills fighting this a cheaper alternative is to outsource a bunch of hackers and spammers to flood a site and drive away the "customers" effectively killing the site.

I used Limewire almost from it's inception and thought highly of it until about a year or so ago.

www.mp3search.ru you can usually get albums and songs on here a week or two before they are released here in the states.

My idea is to find you an old junker PC, something you don't mind wiping the hard drive if it gets infected. Download all your music and music editing software onto it. Then use a jump drive (1-? GB) and transport the files to your good PC, using anti-virus software to scan it. Just don't connect the two computers. This may sound like a lot of work, but it sure beats losing all your stuff.

I'd be careful with the pay-sites, definitely do your research before you give them your information. I've seen sites that copy the big file sharing programs making you think it's what you're looking for and they end up draining your pocketbook. If you do indeed use the pay-sites, I'd put it on a pre-paid credit card. If they do scam you (whether by accident or deliberately, all they can get is what you have allowed.

I've had excellent results with Amazon.com. No monthly fee. No viruses. 99cents or 89 cents per song.

Ok....thanks for all the leads.

I've thought about using my old pc to download off of limewire and then using my flashdrive to transfere. It was the one that I used back in the day on limewire, so I'm sure that it already has viruses and spyes on it. If I scan my flashdrive with my anti-virus on the new PC before I download it, will that protect it?
