Re: limewire wont connect
If you have recently got a new router, there
would be a firewall on the router blocking the required ports for
LimeWire to operate. To get around this, refer to your Router's user
manual and find out how to access it and then unblock those certain
ports. PLEASE NOTE: Do not attempt to unblock all the ports as this
will increase the risk of getting your router and perhaps your
computers infected with viruses.
If that is not your problem,
you may be using and ISP (Internet Service Provider) that has blocked
those ports as downloading music uses a lot of bandwidth which is a
burden on them. If you have Satellite Internet, this is probably the
case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and
negotiating a price for them to unblock the port for you.
Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.
Delete the LW Preferences folder called .limewire
(whilst LW is closed!) & found here: Windows NT 4.0 / 2000 / XP:
C:/Documents And Settings/your_username/.limewire OR for Windows 98 /
ME: "C:\My Documents"
But keep keep in mind once you delete your LW Preferences folder you
will need to reset all your LW option settings so you might want to
make a note of them 1st.

limewire wont work even if you registered because limewire has been cancelled due to copyrighting and being illegal but there something similar that know i use which is frostwire http:\\ www.frostwire.com download it and install its very similar...
continue downloading your mp3 / mp4 files with limewire (frostwire)..its okay...but limewire will never (and neither will any other non apple software) comply with itunes....so lets import the files (top left hand corner) using itunes (import from the folder you have download to) if its in xyz music that is where we will import from...once you have all the music onto itunes click & hold music library of itunes...(top left is itunes /bottom is your ipod if connected)...drag down to music of ipod let it go...once you do this the conversion takes place depending on how many songs u put in 1 - 3mins tops.............have fun dont forget to share mp3 files on limewire/frostwire
You can't use Limewire directly to transfer songs to the Nextar. You will need to transfer the songs to the Nextar using Windows Media Player. Limewire puts the songs in a folder called "Limewire Downloads" usually. You will need to open Windows Media Player, run the mouse over the "Library" tab, and select "Add to Library." Once the window pops up you will need to add the folder called "Limewire Downloads" - it may take several minutes, but Windows Media Player is going to add all of those Limewire downloads to its own library. Then, you can use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs to the Nextar.
You will not need to download anything to Transfer Mp3s from Limewire to this Player. The songs you downloaded from Limewire should be in a folder somewhere. When you set up Limewire you created this folder or used the default folder they provided. Just connect your Mp3 player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a drive and Appear in "My Computer". Double click on the Mp3 player icon in My Computer. This will open up the player. Then with the player and the Limewire folder open just drag the Mp3s onto your Player. You can also use this little player as a USB storage device to store other files. If this did not help you please post a follow up comment and I am sure I can help you.
1. go to Limewire website. Click on "Get it Now" and download the program onto your computer.2.Open Limewire and click on "Audio" from the left tool bar. Then enter the name of the song, group or artist in the boxes and click search.
3.Choose your song from the list that Limewire offers you. Check the type of download it is before choosing. Some downloads are for dial-up Internetconnections, others are for cable, T1 and T2 Internet connections.

It will give you a list of the songs that are downloading and the time remaining to complete their download.

First, install the software if any that came with your mp3 player and connect your mp3 player.

To download music for your mp3 player, you will have to pay for songs at most places like itunes. There is one site that is called LimeWire, just go to www.limewire.com, download and install the software. Let me WARN YOU, that limewire is ILLEGAL and there is stiff penalties if you get caught.
