    Which ones do you guys use? I manage to get most of what I want from i-Tunes, but there's a fair bit which isn't available from the UK store (and it won't permit downloads from the US store). Last time I tried to use Napster, I discovered it's not compatible with Macs, or with my browser, or something... :confused3 I've registered with MP3 Sparks, but I've been unable to load a balance - for 48 hours I've been getting a message about not being able to process credit cards at the moment.

    Deb, have you tried Spotify?

    You can't download from it, but you can stream thousands of music tracks for free.
    You download a small piece of software and off you go. The free version has adverts every now and again but it's a small price to pay for an amazing way of listening to music.
    I reckon Matt could link your Mac to your music system. Never need to buy anything again without listening to it first.

    www.spotify.com

    Thanks for that link Kev. I've thrown a few names at it and it's found them all so I'll have a proper play with it later.

    You can only listen, but there are thousands of tracks. Put in 'Disney' and you get a huge list. Think of it as a giant jukebox, although you can create your own playlists for use.

    Yep, they do. Just downloaded the mp3 download thingy today (took literally 5 seconds) and you checkout the song/album like you normally do with items on Amazon. Then the download prompt comes up and voila it adds the music straight to I-Tunes.
    Just bought the Lilly Allen and Lady Gaga albums at £3 each - bargain! (Please don't comment on my taste in music :lmao: )

    The Lily album is actually really good - bit naughty tho' :rolleyes1

    Thanks for your input, guys. I have the same problem with Amazon as I do with iTunes - the tracks I want to download aren't available in the UK and downloads from the US site are restricted. I'll try some of the other suggestions.

    I'm sneaky and use the US version of Itunes. That way I get ALL the music I want.
