    What is the best

    Music downloading site that you can download music for free without getting a huge bill in the mail. Is Limewire free downloading good? I just don't want to get a huge bill in the mail. Is there anything better?

    It is illegal, even if they say that it isn't.

    Re: What is the best

    I have used Limewire for about 6 or 7 years now and as long as you dont share your files you are OK, or at least I have been fine. Then I add them to my I-Tunes afterwards

    Re: What is the best

    Be careful if you don't know what you're doing. Your likely to get a little message from your ISP telling you to stop. Places like Limewire are the first places that get sniffed out.

    Just pay the 69 cents or whatever from Amazon and feel good that your supporting the artists.

    Re: What is the best

    No matter what you find, unless it's from a band's website, it's probably illegal.

    The only real free, legit music service I've found that's any good is Pandora.

    But it's more of a radio station than an MP3 library...

    Re: What is the best

    I assumed if you did not share your files it would be o.k. to download others music. Is that not true. I have never done this before. I am a rookie. So basically I have no idea what I am doing.

    Re: What is the best

    Kazaa is what I used in the past, though I've not done it in awhile now that I've found a few websites where I can stream music without trouble.

    Doesn't really matter if you share or not...if you get an infected file and you aren't prepared for it, you could wreak havoc on your system.

    Also, like others have mentioned, your ISP could be setting traps. I know Mediacom does this. Had a guy I used to work with in Carroll get busted.

    utorrent and piratebay.org

    However, if you must "borrow" it, do the artist a favor and buy it if you like it. You can also check out pawn shops and half.com for used ones if retail isnt your thing. Lately, pawn shops have been a treasure trove for me. People are selling collections to pay the bills.

    Re: What is the best

    Amazon does provide lots of music free, although I know it's not always what people are wanting at the moment. I've downloaded a few dozen singles, directly to i-Tunes.

    If it is 1999 then I have to say strangesearch. Or whatever that site was called that was a search for files on the ISU campus.
