try WinMX Sep 25, 2002

This can be downloaded from I have tried and it works pretty well, and it\'s free. I have over a 1,000 songs in my computer, and it\'s just great because I cannot work without music.

Hope this helps! icon_smile.gif

Music lives not only in MP3 format! Sep 25, 2002

Maybe I\'m too old but I\'m quite indifferent to MP3 format. I\'m afraid this format is not for a genuine music lover. If you\'re interested not only in MP3 I can recommend you the following great resources where you can find MILLIONS of rear and not so rear CDs and good old vinyl records from all over the world:

Happy music hunting,

try KaZaa Sep 25, 2002

Hi Jerzy,

I use and I beleive it\'s simply the best when it comes to choice and download speed. What are the advantages? Well, a) you\'ve got access to everything you could possibly wish for and b) you set the thing up and let it run overnight and in the morning you got most of what you asked for...providing you are a cable user, like myself. It\'s free, of course, as everything on the web should be.

Happy listening! Sep 25, 2002

One of the most well-known is Kazaa. Another one is Grogster (pretty similar to Kazaa) and there is also bearshare. E-Donkey is also quite good, but tends to be better for films.

Good luck!

All you have to do is download this software and, once you\'re connected to the internet, you can start downloading audio and video files. Good luck!

WARNING ! Sep 26, 2002

DO NOT use Kazaa, MusicMatch, WinMX and so on !

The software contains spyware, analyzing your surfing behaviour and using the collected data for propaganda purposes and spam, uses bandwidth and sometimes disables your firewall to secretly download and install more spyware and dialers.

This software is often associated with \"free\" services like GATOR or GAIN.

Both \"services\" infect your computer, spoil your registry, deactivate your firewall, load more spyware and dialers from the net and are extremely difficult to disable without reinstalling Windows.

PLEASE do stop advertizing for SPYWARE !!!

DO NOT advise others to use the software mentioned above unless you really hate the people you give your advice to !!

Thanks for all the hints Sep 26, 2002

But why shall I use any other programms to download files? Cannot it be simply done with a file-downloader such as Getright, which is and never was spyware?

Is it really impossible to get songs in MP3 format without using Kazaa or else?

Well, from MediaServices you can get a lot of music (but most is not for free, even if is does not cost much - 10 $ for 1 GB songs!), and the only thing you need is to right clik on a link and advice Windows to save downloaded file to a choosen loaction. Or, using Getright ( - a really GOOD tool) just clik on the link - Getright makes the rest. It is able to restart download and to download more files simultaneously, and - most important - it downloads files in segments, so the download process is much faster.

I´ll try the links suggested.

Many thankls to you all

download and install a free bearshare s/w. it allows you to get direct (limited, sure)access to other peoples\' computer (and vice versa). so you can EXCHANGE your music, films and other copyrighted products with other people. no copyright can prohibit you to exchange your music with friends, right? i found it though not absolutely powerful, but useful. fast and unlimited internet is a great advantage.
