So where is the best place to buy and download music?
Lucky me. I got an IPod for my birthday! It's a really, really nice one, the one that even plays movies! I've just tranfered all of my favorite CDs and now I need some good new stuff. I've never used any of the places on the net and don't want to get ripped off or end up joining some lousy music club or something. What do you recommend?

Oh, and where would I download a movie? (Legally, of course!) Can I burn it to a DVD so I can watch it on a big screen?

10. Lol, can't do that, either
My brother-in-law made me swear never to download music without paying for it.....he's in the recording industry. :) It's tempting, though.

7. Ok, we're getting somewhere now
Forgive me, I'm an old lady who is not very techno-savvy. I had hardly heard of iPod, let alone iTunes. But I will check it out. Thanks.

5. eMusic is pretty good
It's pretty much all indie bands, so if you're looking for major label stuff you'll have to go elsewhere.

9. Ok, I'm checking this out, too.
Although I've never heard of it before. I'm an old buckeye, so I'll be happy to listen to an Ohio band.
