You got to be kidding, DiamondGal. I ask my nieces and they spill out at least a half a dozen sites where they download music for free! They seem to find them like ants to a sugar cube. Seriously, I encourage them not to do it because not only are most sites illegal, their programs crash and put God knows what into your computer. And this file sharing business with the likes of Limewire is dangerous. They gobble up your computer bandwidth, and can seriously damage your computer with very little recourse from the user. So, I’m the uncle who ends up fixing their computers. So I tell them, don’t do it! (they do it anyway) My last known legal music download site was Imeem. But, unfortunately, they’ve been sold to MySpace. There are also a bunch of independent storage sites where individuals put their own music. Search the web – but be careful. I personally don’t think a few free music downloads are worth the risk of crashing or damaging your computer. I occasionally buy songs from Amazon.com when I remember one I really like or one that’s really hard to find. And since I’m older, the library in my head is much bigger than any list I can ever hope to fill in my computer anyway. It would cost $$$$$. There is one alternative I like from the Sansa. I can listen to an FM station and actually record the song I like in .wav (excellent sound quality). Of course, sometimes you loose a bit of the lead-in. Small sacrifice for free music. Nothing is free in this world. Try rebuilding a crashed computer and then decide whether or not free music is free. Oh, another alternative and quite legal, is to download music videos from YouTube. You can either put the video (MP4) in your Sansa Fuze via SMC, or convert the MP4 to MP3 or FLAC. And there you have it, free music and free video!
