    My MP3 collection exists out of 170 jewels

    I've used Napster some time, but now I'm using only Scour and iMesh. iMesh is my favourite since you CAN'T have transfer-errors (auto-resume) and you can even do segmented downloading. You could compare iMesh's features with those of Getright

    Well, yes...you can have the entire CD from Amazon...but it doesn't save much time, you will likely get songs you don't want to hear all that much, and it takes 3 days to get there. I don't buy CDs often myself (never have)...

    ...but one I do plan to buy is "O-Town"'s debut album...due out in December. I can't wait for that. I admit, I enjoy some of that boy band music...it's catchy, no denying that.

    And yes, in case you're wondering, O-Town is the group on ABC's "Making the Band."

    Not bad, some of you are real mp3 enthusiasts.

    Just thought I'd share a free, ad-free, and easy to use shareware called "MP3 Decode" which converts .mp3 files to .wav for free. You can download it at http://www.hotfiles.com or http://www.download.com. Highly recommended.

    Before, you had to convert them to WAV, then you could burn them to a CD.
    No no! I'm sorry, the musicmatch software will burn directly from MP3 -> CD Audio. A BIG timesaver.

    I've burned a couple of dozen audio CDs for my car CD player and I've never had to convert to .wav. Get it and save your self 700 megs and 45 minutes of work to burn.

    Yea that is nice, and a big time saver.

    Does anyone know of a good program that rips cd to mp3, that is free and does it at high quality (320).

    BTW, I have 107 mp3's currently, most from napster, (maybe one or two from scour.com, cant remember). On a 56k, not bad i think.

    Also check out this link. If I had the money to spare it would be sweet to do this. http://www.maximumpc.com/route66/

    The same musicmatch software will do that. It supports both WMA and MP3 up to 320 kbits and VBR (variable bit rate) to maximize size/quality ratio. (Gosh. Now I sound like an ad.)

    No it used to be that way. They gave up and made it free (actually, if you pay you can burn MP3s to CD (as audio) faster, but you can still rip at full quality.)

    I've oodles of mp3s. About 2000 in all.

    I've copied over my whole CD collection of about 300 CDs, and downloaded a load of rare coveres / mixes from Napster over 56k. Our internet connection is free so i tend to just stick 15 songs on download, say a prayer than at least one finishes and go to bed

    I built an MP3 Server that is wired into my house. I have 1,658 music files on the server. It has an Infrared Remote Control and TV screen playlist viewer.

    MaximumPC Magazine had a little series on this guy who set up a totally awesome car audio system based on a computer. He took a server rack thingy and threw in a huge hard drive, bit of RAM, and installed Linux on the thing. Then he somehow hooked up a LCD display thingy and programmed it all. I am not sure how he adds MP3's to the setup, but that was really interesting to read.

    I would think that all the bumps that a car goes through would limit the life of a hard drive....

    Yeah, it probably would...

    It's amazing how people are connecting their PCs to their cars, their homes, and their lives. And it's only the start.

    The MP3 server is also going to COntrol the entire house through voice activated control using HAL2000 from http://www.automatedliving.com. It's really StarTrek like in the way it works. |)

    Hi,

    Sorry to bring up a pretty much dead thread but can anyone recomend me a good MP3 manager programme. I am looking for something like the libary function in Windows Media Player 7 but uses a little less system resources and has afew more advanced features . In fact I think I am going to be forced to use that has I have looked through download.com and winfiles.com and I am still yet to find one that I like. The feature that I am looking for the most is the ability to click on an artist and it brings up all my mp3s by that artist and click on a genre and it brings up all my mp3s in that genre and getting this info from the ID3 tag is essential as I dont hve the time to type out all the track information again.

    Please Help

    Well Fletch, I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for (or even if there is a program for that), but here are some recommendations:

    http://www.winamp.com
    http://www.musicmatch.com

    I really like Winamp, but I haven't heard of any player that can do all that you mentioned.

    Give Winamp a try, you might like it.
