Collecting new MP3s, bit of a chore now-

my collection has gotten so filled out that its almost become not worth it to hunt for all the songs that I 'dont have'. Its easy to load up a bunch of tracks on kazaa for an artist that you dont have any of,

but how do you search for those elusive 3-4 tracks you need and not spend too much time to make it not even worth it.

anyone have comments on this?

It would be awesome if a P2P system somehow linked to your MP3 management software so that it would use that to ONLY search and bring up stuff you DONT have, so you dont have to continually sift through tthe same crap over and over.

Here's a wild idea. You could go to the store and buy the record or singles?

I would think that if you have to search through stuff you already have, you have a lot of stuff from the same artist or whatever, and maybe should buy the CD. I'm not going to preach on you, I have plenty of illegal mp3s, but it's mostly just a few odd things like movie themes, stuff I'd never buy. I've never had a problem like you've described... when I get like that, I'd buy the CD.

LOL, true. Well, some people will always tell you they don't have any money to buy CDs yet spend loads on computer components and other crap.

Haven't d/l anything in years now. Just costco and amazon for me. And sometimes BB if they have the $10 sale.

My sentiments exactly.

Most of the CD's I have bought over the past five years have been of the result of downloading the artists stuff (albeit illegally) taking an interest and going out and buying the CD.

Hey ass, i didnt ask

"Should I download MP3s or BUY Cds, becaue I am torn over this moral dilema and I desperately need your help to decide what is right"

I asked what software can be used for me to find a few mp3s that I dont have.

You might want to reconsider that "ass" comment

You come asking for advice on an illegal activity, don't expect everyone to be nice about it.

Your choices are probably limited to Kazaa or IRC. IRC requires that you hunt down not only the mp3 you want, but the server and room, as well. It can be time consuming. Kazaa lets you search for it.

This will become interesting. The only reason why I post here is:

a. to agree with the rest of the posters that you are requesting info on illegal activities, which are obviously not supported by DVDtalk

b. To switch on email notification so I can be mailed when this thread gets added to.

Bye Skiblet.

skiblet,

Don't ask for help on your illegal activities here at DVD Talk. And another comment like that and you'll be suspended.
