Software for Copying Music
Copying your CD Collection to high-quality mp3 or other formats can provide you with an easy to access set of music files and a means of cataloguing and organizing your collection. It also allows you to create personalized CDs of all your favourite tracks without having to carry around many CDs. There are lots of software programs that can copy your CDs. I’ve listed some on this page: Music Resources: Copying.

Software for Downloading Music
Probably the most well-known source of music on the Internet is Kazaa. the problem is that the free version of Kazaa is loaded with adware and spyware. Alternative -- and free! -- P2P (Peer to Peer Networking) products exist that do not include adware or spyware. Here’s a list of free alternatives to Kazaa: Music Resources: Downloads Page.

IMPORTANT: The nature of P2P sharing services makes them an easy source of virus infections, Trojans, and assorted nasties. Before installing any P2P software or downloading any files, install an Anti-Virus program and keep it current.
