Where's a good place to download music?
I have Kazaa, but it sucks. It doesn't have **** on Napster 4 years ago. I used to use MusicGalaxy or whatever, but they shut that down, too. I don't care if I have to pay, but I don't want to pay alot. Any know of anywhere?

See what happens when you change the board and don't consult the members.

I rarely have problems finding exactly what I want on Kazaa. You cannot find something on Kazaa.....is that a regularly occurring prob? Did you try jumping supernodes?

NEVER EVER use kazaa... get kazaalite instead without all the ad and spyware on it. if that doesn't work then i think you're looking for some pretty obscure music bro.

Go buy the friggin cd's and stop steeling the music from the net.(j/j)
Yes Kazaa sucks hind tit.....Try WinMX.com, it has worked good for me and no spy/ad ware.

What version do you have? I think the newer versions of K++ handle all that problem to some extent although sometimes if I am downloading a large file (700+ mb) that is relatively rare it can be a significant wait because of source finding problems.

I don't know what the deal is. Maybe it's who I'm downloading from, but I always get screwed, and when I do a search %80 of the results have the red X on them, which I don't know what is, and it fails to download those anyway.
I guess I'll try out winMX, and see how that turns out.

If your just looking for a song or two then all of the above are ok, but if you want full albums and games, movies, apps, audio books ect then Bit torrent kicks ass!! All you have to do is download the small file from Bittorrent.com homepage and then hit a page like suprnova.org and you can download a ton of albums (recent or old), movies that have just hit theaters ect.. It is by far the best program I have ever used for jacking free stuff.

10-21-2004, 01:44 AM #26

10-21-2004, 04:37 AM #27

10-21-2004, 08:28 AM #28
suprnova.org gives you the full albums.
10-21-2004, 08:32 AM #29
Bit torrents are the way to go. Also Binary Newsgroups.

IMHO it is stupid to download stuff from the web or from P2P. Get your stuff from UseNet instead. Get yourself a good newsreader (I like NewsLeecher for binaries, but Agent works okay too) and if your ISP does not have a news server, then pay for an account.
Here are a few groups for you:
I think you get the picture. There are probably 4 or 5000 newsgroups just for music binaries. When you get stuff from P2P there is no peer review. On a newsgroup, if a post is bogus or incomplete or corrupted or is infected, somebody will post a message to that effect. So you can see, if the post is a day old or so, whether or not it is what it is supposed to be. There is more variety. Things are neatly categorized in their proper groups. You don't have to hope that your source is online... you can always log on to your news server. You are more anon than with P2P. And you can also get programs, e-books, pics, flicks, (most flicks on P2P are low quality avi rather than VCD or SVCD or DVD compliant mpg) and you can also find text-only groups with lively discussions going on. UseNet rocks. P2P sucks. Just my two yuan.
