I'm not too up on all the music download sites but would like to be able to burn some custom cd's in either MP3 or music format. Anyone have any favorites? I use playlist for my computer music but it won't allow me to download or burn my music.

To tell the truth I get a lot of music for my underwater videos by just going to the local library and bringing home about 20 discs at a time. I only need to listen to parts of a couple songs to see if it fits my needs. I could listen to them at the library except that my disc player in my laptop quit. Just recently I picked up a new laptop so that should save me running back and forth.

There's always ITunes and then there's this site called Jamendo. I'm not up on all this stuff. What's Playlist? Maybe that's your problem.

Here's a link to it. It may take you to one of my playlists? I'm not too up on this kind of stuff. I HATE ITunes, that's why I got rid of my IPhone. I'll give that Jamendo a look see. I just create a playlist of what suits the mood to listen to while I'm surfin the net.

Here is what you can do.


Download software from CNET that allows you do record anything that comes out of your laptops soundcard.
Download software that allows you to edit the music file that will be created i.e. split the file in multiple parts.
Install both programs
Go to your favorite music site and start listening with the audio recorder on.
Once you are done save the file and use the editor to break the file up into the songs.
Do with the resultant music files what you will.
I make no assertion that this is legal or ethical I am just explaining a way to capture output on your PC and cannot be responsible for what does or does not happen for using said advice.

It'll take me the rest of the week to understand what you just said :confused:. I'll look into it though.

Realplayer (http://www.real.com/), which is totally free, allows you to download most videos and music clips from the internet. I personally use it, and it works well. I've downloaded many videos and used Realplayer to convert them to audio format (MP3, WMA etc.).

I hope this helps.

I HATE ITunes, that's why I got rid of my IPhone. MediaMonkey (http://www.mediamonkey.com/information/free/) supports the same file types that Itunes does, and it works with the Apple Ipod. I've never tried it with an Iphone, but it probably would work.

I have real player on the computer but thought it was for video only. Don't know about all this converting stuff. My wife use to use limewire till she got two different viruses. I need something simple that will allow me to save/download a song and burn it.

I need something simple that will allow me to save/download a song and burn it.Realplayer handles audio and video. After looking at the link you gave, I believe the only way to get music from a player like that would be to record it and then convert it to .MP3 format like Sharxfan said. This of course may or may not be legal. To convert a file means to take one file type and change it to another.

Example: You have a .wav sound file and want it to be a .MP3 file.
1. Open Realplayer Converter from your start menu.
2. Drag and drop the file into the converter.
3. You'll see a section just under where you dragged the file to with a file type in it. Click the arrow and select .MP3 from the list.
4. Right under that you'll see a drop down menu with a output folder. Make sure you select where you want the file to go (if you want it to go to your music folder, select that).
5.Click "Start".
6. When finished, you should have a .MP3 file in your output folder that you selected.
