MP3 is the prefered method for music downloads.

MP3 is a file format on which music is created for CD downloads which can be played either, on a computer or an MP3 player (like the one on your cell phone.)

Your computer uses pre-installed software called a media player to play the MP3 songs on the CD download. If you have a Windows based PC for example (Windows XP, Vista etc.) when you click on the download - Windows Media Player will open and automatically start playing the songs.

So, you're safe to download the music in MP3 format. It will be of good sound quality.

    Tip: The term CD download is generally used because after the songs are downloaded to your computer, the music can then be copied to a CD disc - if the music is not copy protected.

More commonly referred to as MP3, is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3 is an audio-specific format that was designed by the Moving Picture Experts Group as part of its MPEG-1 standard.
The use in MP3 of a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners. An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 11 times smaller[note 1] than the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality.
The compression works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to as perceptual coding.[5] It uses psychoacoustic models to discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and then records the remaining information in an efficient manner.

MP3 is a file format that is most commonly available nowadays, so if ever you need to download a song even a classic one, you'll be having easier time looking for one.

I'm not sure what you're saying about a cd. If all you need to do is play MP3 files, Windows Media Player can do that. Downloads are usually step-by-step, just pick Run for most of them, and they will install through what is called a Wizard (just a program that installs them, and gives you choices, which is the only confusing thing, but you just go through it best you can). Hope this helps, not really sure what you're trying to do or need.

I have a Telefunken TMP-444B, 4GB MP3/4 player. The setup soft ware disc does not load to any of my computors. Where can I download it. Cannot load music onto the player


Hopefully you got a solution already, but here goes mine: I also had a Telefunken TMP-444B, 4GB MP3/4 and i found you don't need a cd (my cd also didn't work). Try connecting it to your pc via usb-cable and access it on your PC. Simply copy your Mp3 or mp4 files onto it and see it should work. Mine did. Hope yours will.
(Just take care when deleting files, because i don't know if important files are protected on your mp3/4 player). Take care anyway ;-)
Cheers

Downloading music from pc to mp3


Download Winamp, from winamp.com. You can do all those things with it. More specifically, if you have winamp and you've inserted your CD and your MP3 player, you'll be able to see both in Winamp's Media Library. Then, it's as simple as a "right click" on the CD, clicking on rip audio CD, finding that music in your local library, selecting it and sending it to your mp3 player.

Lost registration CD


you can get the iTunes program from apples website

www.apple.com/itunes/download

Basicly you simply need the itunes, and then your music, witch is on your ipod and your itunes account? so I think you simple have to install itunes, login, plug the ipod in and everything should work as before. Might be a bit difrent if the itunes program has been updated from your previous version.

I think you can order a new cd from apple if you need one.
