Music help - where can I buy mp3s or mp4s?

    My son and I have mp3 players and have purchased songs previously from Walmart.com (shaddup! ) Selection sucks.

    I don't want to file share, or illegally download. I just want to purchase mp3 or mp4 songs for a buck or less.

    Any help please?

    Also, www.rhapsody.com not sure what format that is, but it has a plan with unlimited monthly downloads for ~13 a month, which would be pretty good if you were trying to build a library quickly.

    Napster is good as well.

    You have a fee per month, but you have a huge amount of tunes.

    I have noticed that some artists are not on Napster.

    Which site has the best selection?

    I know you can download albums from Amazon, not sure about individual songs. But iTunes is terrific.

    Also emusic.com

    What the hell is an mp4? The same as an mp3 only better?

    Also, there are tons of music that have free songs to download. Mostly indie stuff, but still it's free.

    Maybe I am a real idiot but I thought you could only download songs from Itunes that play on Ipods - not mp3 players... correct?

    I'm not sure. I thought they played on others, but I have an iPod so I never thought about it.

    If that's the case, then you (I think) can buy it, burn it to a cd, then import the CD back to your iTunes.

    Your best bet for mainstream stuff is Amazon.com. They're high quality mp3s and they're generally cheaper than iTunes. Selection isn't as good, though.
