I couldn't download my songs, but then my friends told me that I could use Limewire. And it worked and it said that the song was an MP3 file. But when I pressed "play" it said "Unknown Format." WTF?!
p.s. my email doesn't work so you can send it to me on my other email: firstname.lastname@example.org

there are a few ways that i'm sure you will be able to use and never fail.
u can download a software called "Frostwire" and download songs that way. its just like limewire but better.
also u can go to a website and download songs that way. the domain address is "downloads.nl". for this one just click the mp3 tab nd type in ur search words. then click on the link nd it will play the song if it works. and no it doesnt open up annoying extra browsers that take forever to load. if it works, let the whole song get buffered before you right click "download" below the link nd play bar. than left click either "save as" or "save link as" or "save target as" and then continue like your saving a picture from the web.
There are several things that I can see that might be driving your mp3 player haywire:
A) About 1/3 of Limewire songs contained some type of writing in the "Comments" section of the songs' ID3 Tags before version 5 - it may be up to 100% now, and your player obviously doesn't like it. This is going to be a real bear, but I would take one of the songs you just downloaded, open it in Windows Media Player, and right-click the song title within Windows Media Player. Select "Advanced Tag Editor," and delete any writing that appears in the "Comments" section of the ID3 tag. Then try transferring that song to your player and see if it plays correctly. If it does, repeat with all of the songs you just downloaded. It will take you forever.
B) If you use iTunes to transfer songs to your mp3 player, version 5 will not work with iTunes - it simply pastes a data file into iTunes which is not the actual song, so it may appear to transfer correctly, but in fact you have not transferred the actual song file. Use Windows Media Player to transfer instead.
C) The bitrate on songs in version 5 is higher - most mp3 players have a maximum bit rate that they can handle, and ver. 5 might exceed this upper limit. The solution would be to convert all of your mp3 files to a lower bit rate using free software such as Media Monkey.
Without dragging this explanation out any longer, I think your best solution would be to revert back to Ver. 4.1 or so.
The nameless mp3 player that you have is probably not capable of playing DRM-protected songs. Double-check the songs that you have downloaded from Limewire, and see if the 3 songs that you ARE able to play are in mp3 format. If so, only transfer songs in mp3 format to the player. DRM-encrypted WMA's and iTunes (AAC) songs will not work.
its very easy my friend, GO to Limewire,,, but just go in this link http://www.download.com/LimeWire/3000-2166_4-10552048.html just click DOWNLOAD LATES LIMEWIRE, THEN YOU WILL HAVE to wait for it until completely download then in that software you can download unlimited songs just choose mp3 format
go to www.oldversion.com and download the old bearshare downloading music program and get files that way. For some reason the newer versions of file sharing programs only let you download copyrighted music.
