i just got the internet at home and i'm trying to figure out this downloading music thing again. the last thing i used was audiogalaxy which was great. but what is good now, i signed up for kazaa which i've heard about a bunch but i can't find much on it. but there also seems to be a kaza and a kazza and a kazzaa and any other variotion thats possible. anyone know what's the best to use?

personally i think soulseek is the best for downloading music. go to www.slsk.org to download the program. it's very easy to set up.

i agree, soulseek is super. i've also got kazaa, and use it quite a bit, but the selection there stinks.

WinMX is good, very efficient, though the selection sometimes leaves something to be desired.

The most important thing is that if you download more than three songs in an album you buy the album. :)

yeh i'm mainly downloading the albums that i have on vinyl because its such a pain to transfer vinyl to cd, or cds that i have that are scratched to hell (which seem to be most of mine). i'm completely into supporting musicians and would never robb them. especialy the more underground bands, cause i know they don't make much.

anyways thanks for the suggestions, i've checked out soulseek and it seems to have what i'm looking for

defenitely soulseek, lots of e6 stuff on there, like liveconcerts and hard to find out of print releases

if uour going to kazaa you must KAZAA LITE - no spyware... make sure once you have it you never agree to the update notices or else they will jab your eyes out with hot spyware.

Little nasty hidden programs that tell companies what kind of stuff you search for. Most of the time its for advertising purposes, but it can also be used for other bad things.

www.eff.org

this website tells a lot of the things the government is trying to do. VERY SCARY!

Does SoulSeek have spyware, and does it puts ads on your computer and stuff?

Yeah... Soulseek is supposed to be spyware free..

There are some good programs like Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy that will get rid of the hidden spyware on your computer.

i believe kazaa is also being monitored by the riaa (recording industry artists association) to try and bust high volume sharers.

Kazaa-lite supposedly doesn't have any of the spyware...who knows...soulseek is definitely the best, but many people on there don't share very well.
