    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

My wife wants to be able to download music so that I can burn it on to CD's.
Back in the old, illegal days I use to use Kazaa. Now I'm old enough to know that I like my PC virus and adware free; and rather pay for music that won't get me arrested.
We have I-tunes downloaded for my daughter's Ipod, but my understanding is that these files can't be used to burn CD's.
What site do you recommend based on-
-adware free
-speed
-song selection
-multiple uses of the music(mp3 player, burn, etc)
Thanks

You can still use Ares. Its free just like Kazaa, but it haz zero spyware. And iTunes will work for burning CD's.

You actually can burn music from iTunes to a CD. The major drawback to iTunes however is that the format that you download is an mp4 which means that it's a protected format. Not a huge deal but you'll have a hard time playing those songs on other software or devices.

So, then there would be no problem buying music from ITunes and then using the files to burn a CD?
Can you elaborate on the protected format issue?

If you download a song from iTunes, it will only play in iTunes or on an iPod or similar MP3 player, unless you burn it to a CD and then copy it back to the computer.

As said..you can easily burn iTunes songs to a CD. Just look in the top right corner were it says "burn disc", click it, and it will tell you what to do from there. I use Limewire since its free, but you can get spyware and such from using it so I would recommend that you just keep using iTunes.

I would have to say Itunes, it works great for me, and you can also authorize your music on up to 5 pc's, so you can share with the family on multiple pc's
