|What is MP3 ?|
MP3 is a file format which is used to play music on your computer. MP3 is a relatively new format which was introduced a few years
ago and make quite a breakthrough in digital music. The major thing it introduced is a very high quality sound file which takes up low
storage space. The quality of the music is CD-quality (44khz, Joint stereo). The previous format (WAV) also gave a supoerb quality sound, but it's major flaw
was storage space (it took around 10Mb for every minute of music, while MP3 files take up to 1/10).
|How Do I Download Songs From Your Site ?|
If you want to download songs from our site, it's quite simple. When you look at our site you can see that at the top part of it there is a search box.|
Choose from the drop-down list, to the left of the search box, what you want to search for and type in what you want to download. After you clicked on "Search" or pressed ENTER on the keyboard,
you will get a list of search results from the search you have made. If you found a song/album you want, simply click on the SONG TITLE/ALBUM TITLE (SONG NAME/ALBUM NAME). If you have chosen Album in the search
you will see the album page which shows all the details of the album, clicking on a song title (song name) will get you to the "Song Download Page". If you chose either
Artist or Song in the search and you clicked on the song title (song name) you wanted, you will get to the "Song Download Page".
"Song Download Page" : In this page you will see the song's details and you will be able to download the song. To download it
click on the "DOWNLOAD SONG" link at the top part of that page. It is recommended that you download the song by right-clicking on the "DOWNLOAD SONG"
link and choosing "Save Target As..." (Internet Explorer) / "Save Link As..." (Netscape).
After you have successfully downloaded the song, check the file extension. If it's a .mp3 file, double click it to play it. If it's not, see This section on how to open/extract the mp3 file you have downloaded.
|How Do I Play MP3 files ?|
You can play mp3 files using an MP3 player. For instance you can use Winamp which was the first MP3 player on the market.|
It now offers alot of features which includes skins, database browsing, plugins and more.
|How Do I Burn MP3 files ?|
MP3 files can copied onto a CD. You can burn the MP3 files as they are - digital encoded mpe files in a data mode. You must have a CD burner in order to
burn a CD, and you need a burning software (which is usually provided with the CD burner). You can also burn MP3 files as regular CD tracks (which you can play in every
CD player). You must decode the MP3 back to .WAV file in order to do that - and for that you would need an MP3 decoder, or you can use the
burning software to decode the MP3 files automatically before burning - thus burning the MP3 files not as data, but as audio. Check the software documentation for this feature.
|I Downloaded a song, but it has an .OGG extension. What is it ?|
.OGG files are a new format which is called Ogg Vorbis. Ogg Vorbis is a new audio compression format. It is roughly comparable to other formats used to store and play digital music, such as MP3, VQF, AAC, and other digital audio formats. It is different from these other formats because it is completely free, open, and unpatented.
If you have this kind of file you should try and play it with Winamp 2 or Winamp 3. They should support this format
If you find problems try one of these software :|
OggDrop - Simple drag and drop GUI encoder; no nonsense, just works DOWNLOAD NOW
OggDropXPd - More powerful, more complex drag and drop GUI encoder DOWNLOAD NOW
Or try more software for the Ogg Vorbis (choose the platform your computer is on) :

|I downloaded an MP3 file, but it doesn't play in Winamp. Why ?|
There could be a few reasons for that :|
1. It's not an .mp3 file (check the extension of the file).
2. It's a renamed .mp3 file (check the extension of the file).
3. It's a renamed archived .mp3 file. Which means someone, not only archived the mp3 file, but also renamed it to something else
What can you do ?
1. If it's not an MP3 file, it could be an archived song. The available archive types are :
Zip files (Get Winzip)
RAR files (Get WinRAR - right click on save target as...)
ACE files (Get WinAce) - Winace opens all other archives, so I would recommed it highly !
CAMOUFLAGE files (Get Camouflage v1.04)
Try using one of the archive programs to extract the MP3 file from within the archive. After you extract the mp3 file from the archive, you can play it using your WINAMP.
NOTE : Some archives have extracting passwords (Zip passwords) which you must enter in order to extract the mp3 files. Check if a password exist before you download the song : you can see the "Zip Password" field in every download page at
the middle left part of the screen.
2. In case they are renamed mp3 files, simply rename the file into .mp3 (make sure the file extension is changed) and play it with WINAMP.
3. Rename the file to one of the available archive file types (.zip for Zip files, .rar for RAR files, .ace for Winace files, .jpg for camouflage files), and see the previous section (1) on how to extract mp3 files from archives.
|I downloaded files from your site and I got a bunch of weird files, what do I do ?|
Those weird files could well be archived mp3 songs or they could be renamed mp3 songs.|
MP3 songs can appear in many files and in many extensions. They can be DOC files, XLS files, CLASS files, PS files, GIF/JPG files, and more...
What do you do ? check the previous question.
|I renamed the weird file(s) to .mp3 but it still doesn't work. Why ?|
There could be 2 reasons for that :|
1. You didn't quite rename the file. What do I mean? sometimes when you rename the file to .mp3 windows changes the file name but not the actual extension.
What you must do is check the way windows shows you the files. To do that go to My Computer. Then click on Tools->Folder Options in the menu. Now, go to the
VIEW tab where you'll see a list of options. Make sure that the option : "Hide File Extensions For Known File Types" is UNCHECKED.
If it's checked then windows will assume the mp3 files are mp3 files no matter what name you'll give them and so on for .zip files etc...
That way when you "rename" the file, you actually only rename the file name and not the extension. By disabling this option you tell windows - "Show me all the extensions
no matter what". For further instructions about renaming and extracting mp3 files from archives see This questions from this FAQ.
2. The file is not an MP3 file, but rather an archived mp3 file. See This Question on how to open mp3 files.
|When I try and unzip a file it asks for a password. What do I do ?|
Well, some archives must be extracted using a password.|
WE DON'T HAVE ANY PASSWORDS, for the simple reason that we didn't put the passwords in the first place.
The problem is that when our scripts work and gather mp3 links from various places sometimes the mp3 files require passwords to unzip them. If
such a password exists when our scripts gather that file, it stores the password in our database and you will be able to see the password in a line that says "Zip Password" in every song download page.
If there is not such password - you will see "N/A" in the "Zip Password" line. In that case there's nothing we can do. You can check our compiled Password List
which we gathered from our database and try the passwords listed there.
|I click on a song to download and I get an "Access Forbidden" message. How do I get access ?|
"Access Forbidden" means that the song link doesn't exist anymore. Which means you can't download the song since it doesn't exist. If that thing happens
or if you see a "404 File Not Found" error, please click on the "Check Link" link in the middle right part of the download page so that our script would check the song and remove it if it truly doesn't exist anymore.
|I tried the password in the "Zip Password field", still - no go. What now ?|
The only thing you can do is try the passwords from the Password List.
|I tried every password in the password list, but it doesn't work, what can I do ?|
Contact us and tell us that the passwords don't work, and we will remove the file. Try and download another link to that song and if none exist, we'll try and get another link to that song.
|I downloaded a .JPG file which is supposed to be a song, I can't open it. What do I do ?|
.JPG files are very often archived mp3 songs. The archive program usually used here is CAMOUFLAGE. see This Question on how to extract mp3 files from archives.
|I want song X by artist Y. Can you get it for me ?|
Please ! do not request songs by email. We will NOT get you songs, nor we will send you songs. If you want to make a song request
then post it on the Request Board and we will do our best at getting the song for you.|
Make sure you've searched for the song you want on our search engine before you post a request.
