Sometimes a song takes a while to process. If you choose a format and/or bitrate that no one has requested, yet, they have to encode it. Sometimes you have to wait a while for your turn to come up. Or sometimes the computer just gets stuck. Try deleteing it and reordering it. (You don't get charged until you actually download it) Or, try refreshing the page. (Even if you use their Explorer program) Sometimes you are viewing an old page and your song might actually be ready.

Everything working great now, seems it took awhile to encode the one track only.

One other thing, isn't 128kps CD quality, they indicate 192 kps as CD quality?

Anyone?

Thanks

Neither is CD quality, but they're a lot closer to being right than you are.

I've been using allofmp3 since late '04. Apparently it's legal. Also, I read the Register article citing that artists are not getting paid. I didn't see that statement in the article. I haven't had any problems with my card.

I'd be interesting to see what the legality of it is. AFAIK, I have not seen a government/industry source cite it as illegal. That doesn't mean it's legal, though.

I think I've read that it's legal due to an arcane loophole in Russian laws that was never meant to be applied to the internet. Supposedly they're going to patch it up sometime soon.

Not to be rude but this thread is a year and a half old. Why not read the 57 posts before yours. I think you'll find that your question has already been addressed.

I agree. Hrm, figure out how to get more money to the US music industry or fix our fucked-up economy, remove the terrorists, and round up the mob? Decisions, decisions...

Fucked up economy? The stock market topped 11,000 about a week or two ago! Please keep your wackiness to the political forum!

I think you *might* be overreacting.

Anyway...actually yes Shawn, it's farily decent. I'm about to buy into a Russian Mutual Fund that is doing fairly well. Small investment, but I hope for a nice return!

I guess I'm about ten years behind on my Russian economic history.

And it's Shaun.

I was just browsing that site. Good stuff. Less than $2 an album is good, it's not free but it's good.

And you can select the format and quality, which--as far as I know--you can't do on any other music store.

Doesn't hold a candle to Allofmp3, cheaper or not. Their selection is FAR inferior.

That's why you put a little money in each and choose the best for any particular album. If both sites have the same album, I'm going with mp3spy.

Unless Itunes has an exclusive, I'm not paying ANYTHING for something that's compressed. They need to learn to start putting lossless versions on there. Then I'd start paying.

I think you miss the point of portable music entirely. What the heck do I want a buch of flacs on my iPod for at the expense of six times less music?

Who said anything about it being in my Ipod? If i'm "buying" something, I'm buying it because I want it high quality for my collection. I'm not buying something that's sub-par. I'd prefer to compress it myself for my Ipod and have an uncompressed version for listening at home.

I think YOU misinterprited my post. I never said I was using the FLAC's for my ipod.
