Preferred Solution: Downloading music trouble

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Downloading music trouble

Two things:
First: there is no safe way to deal with P2P, and my firm is inundated with calls and computers everyday from people who don't believe me, and thought some free AV program on the web would help them.

Second: the likelihood of pirated data being passed over torrent or Limewire is about 100%, give or take, and I'll answer no question about them.

You have a simple file associations problem, but given the context, I can't condone the process, and won't be helping on this one.

Hello all, been a while since I have posted (you see things have been running smoothly with all of your help!). My 14 year old would like to download music from the internet. I have heard varying opinions as to whether it is legal or not. Being the upstanding citizen I am, I would like to download music..legally. LOL Can anybody give me a difinitive answer on whether or not it is legal? Also, is there a difference in the legality of it if you use a music for fee site? If so, I would be glad to pay a small fee for the service, but again, I wasn't sure if it was OK. If it is legal to download from for fee sites, which site is the best to use and is this something that is pretty simple to do? We just want to burn them on to a CD so he can listen to them.

Thanks in advance....

Also..one other thing...why am I having to click the "back" botton three times to get to the previous screen? It used to be only twice. LOL LOL

Thanks again.

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a way of making sure that when music is downloaded the volume of all songs are heard at an equal level. Instead of some loud and some soft.
Thanks.
What I mean is that when I go to listen to the downloaded music, some songs sound loud and others can hardly be heard.

A:Downloading music

There are actually some programs that allow you to do that whilst playing the songs back.
It would be virtually impossible to do that at download level since there are too many diffrent machines and formats doing the original recordings.
If you compare volume levels of 2 CD's from the same source you will probably find major differences.
instead look for a program or player that automatically adjusts music level, on playback. Take care of one I remember using some years ago which altered the data affecting the playback in batch mode. I ended up doing a batch job on the wrong files and permanantly altering the volume level which made a total mess of everything.

I recently had to have my computer repaired due to several viruses and a ton of Spyware and Adware, and when I got it back, the repair guy had installed AVG, Spybot S&D, and Ad-aware SE (all free editions) to help prevent the same problem from happening. Will the programs he installed really help, or should I get more. I got a notice that the AVG Anti-Virus software is outdated, and that I should probably get a different antivirus program. What is the best program that isn't very expensive, and that will work even on a computer using an unregistered version of Windows XP (I do have service pack 2 however)?

Howdy,

I have a neighbor who has Windows 98 on his system. He went to the Wal-Mart music download site to download some songs.

The site says that it can download to computers supported by Windows 2000 and Xp.
Is there some sort of download he can get that would enable him to download music from the Wal-Mart site?

This is what he is trying to accomplish.

He wants to download "The Star Spangled Banner" to play at his sons Little League games.

Either a payed or free version.

He could go buy a CD but thought this would be simpler.


Hope I am making sense.

No doubt this is the wrong forum, but I don't know which is the right one.

Two counts against me: first, I'm dumb; second: I've never downoaded music before and haven't the slightest etc.

Anyhow, I wonder how I can find out how and from where I can download music legally, and if I need special hardware or software to do it.

I'm interested in old songs like songs by Woody Gutherie, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Johnny Cash. I wonder if there are certain sites that are more likely to have these?

Maybe there is a website that would educate me about this.

THE GARDEN SONG

Inch by inch,
Row by row,
Gonna let my garden grow,
All I need is a rake and hoe,
And a piece of fertile ground.

Inch by inch, row by row,
Someone bless these seeds I sow,
Someone warm them from below
Till the rains come a'tumbling down.

Pulling weeds, picking stones,
We are made of dreams and bones,
Feel the need to grow my own
For the time is near at hand.

Grain for grain, sun and rain,
Find my way in nature's chain,
Tune my body and my brain
To the music of the land.

Plant your rows straight and long,,
Temper them with prayers and song,
Mother Earth will make you strong
If you give her love and care.

Too bad I can't sing it for you, though my granchildren would tell you differently.

Hi,
thanks for help.
I have Windows XP and put 25 downloaded songs in a NEW FOLDER. I had to drag them to put them in the folder. Now I want to remove some of those songs. How do I remove them? just delete to re-cylce and then try to "restore" to another folder or to MY MUSIC? When I open the NEW FOLDER all the songs(files)are there, but I see no way to take them out of the folder and put them in another folder.
Also, since these are MP3 files, will they play in any regular CD player? There are plain ole CD players and some are labelled MP3 and some are not, so I do not want to buy a CD player that will not play "burned" CD's.

There is a program called GetRight that will help with the downloads (it will continue where it left off if you get disconnected), but won't help (too much) with the actual speed of the download, due to the limitations of dial-up.

I believe the website is www.getright.com , but if that's not it, you can google "getright" and it should pull up the correct site.

Hi,

I have a question about music downloading. I don't want to commit any sort of illegal activity, and I don't want to get in trouble with the law.

I own a video game (not a computer game), and this game has some tunes that I really enjoy. The game itself has a mode where you can listen to the game's music. It's nice, but if I'm travelling and I want to listen to these tunes (for example), then it's not the most convenient thing.

Since I can listen to the game's music off the video game itself whenever I want to (with the proper accessories), would it be illegal for me to download the tunes off the Internet and put it on my iTunes library, or an mp3 player (this is assuming I wouldn't share it with anyone, and that'd it only be for my personal use)? In a way, don't I own the music for my own use?

Having 4 videos on your computer isn't going to make it slower unless you have a tiny hard drive. But if you were using a P2P program you might have downloades malware as well, which can slow down your computer. You should run adaware and cwshredder and see if you have any infections.

25th Dec 2008Hi Guys,SEASONS GREETINGS!I have a problem. I am at present collecting music from the 40's to the 80's through a file sharing program called Limewire.Through this program, I have been able to download many hundreds of tunes, many of which are no longer heard.In the past, the album art downloaded automatically with the tunes. However, for the past few months even though I have downloaded more than five hundred tunes, no album art is being downloaded. I cannot accept that album art is simply unavailable for so many tunes. I use Windows Media Player 11 and my Operating System is Windows XP Professional.Could it be that something is wrong with either WMP 11 or Windows XP that is preventing the downloads?Please advise.With THanks.ComptonEdit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I REALLY want to download music, but I don't want to go the way of places like Kazaa where you download music for free, butnyou can get in trouble by music companies. (or whoever gets you in trouble) I remember they passed a law about not doing that anymore and with that being stated, I stopped Peer to Peer downloading. Well now that I don't do that anymore, I want to still download music, but I want to do it in a LEGAL way.

I know that Napster is legal, but you pay 99 cents a song. And though that is reasonable, there is nothing wrong with looking for cheaper rates . Well I came across a site called MP3U.com

the addy is
http:[email protected]_mp3u&lid=1204

Well anyways, they are charging a dollar a MONTH for UNLIMITED downloads. That sounds good!

Now with saying that, can anyone answer me this.. (I don't know a lot about this so bear with me.)

I know places like napster are legal now they charge and all that (even says on their site). So is MP3U legal too? Cuz I know if you are caught on P2P like Kazaa, you can get a HEAVY fine, as someone I knew did in fact. So is MP3U legal? And if not, can you show me places where I can do that?

I REALLY appreciate it.

I've never tried to attach a music file to an email, but I suppose it could be done. Probably depends on the size of the file. Some email severs have a limit on attachment file sizes. This can apply to either the sender or the receiver of the email. The only way to find out for sure is to try it. If it works, then you would transfer it to a CD like you would any music file.

Test with a different mp3 file.

In any case, it's likely a DRM issue. The new files may have DRM and the old ones do not, or the new files have a different version that is not supported by that software.
