MP3 Music Downloads

3 Part Question:
A: WHY and WHEN does an MP3 downloaded song become an M3U?
B: I download songs through Napster to C Drive, then transfer to a 100mg zipdisk- Is there a better way?
C: Can you tell me the best 60's/70's sites to download without the search dramas and are there sites where you can d/l the video of the band actually singing the song too? Thanks, Bigpig

m3u is a text code that allows you to stream an mp3 realtime

None I can think of, unless you want to invest in a SCSI set up for faster hard drive.
You can also burn the mp3 to CD_R or CD-RW
Sky's the limit.

Dont have specific ones at the moment but these should help you.

Thanks very much Centerv. I'm awarding the points to you. And having checked out the mp3 sites you sent,I've realised just how much I still have to learn!
To Roupik, thanks also for joining in and no doubt you will answer one of my future questions. All the best, Bigpig

I do think that what you're doing now is a goog way to go, and economic.

Keep in mind that with a cd burner you can convert your mp3 to wave and make your own cds for listning in car etc.

Also, next time you open the rack of your cd-r, look in the middle and you'll notice a small indentation of a disk about half the size od the regular.

Heard about mini cd.  they fit in there.

So that if you want to get a portable mp3 player, you can play and make mp3 on your pc!!

Best of luck and have lots of fun with it.

Thanks Centerv....
As soon as I have more brass I'm going to implement some of the things you have taught me......isn't it funny that I've been on the Net for two years and still haven't worked out how to make money out of it except for running some type of website. Anyway, Catch you, Bigpig
