Downloading MP3's Made Easy
by Keith Kingston
The MP3 movement started out with a huge audience of music
enthusiasts on the internet. The MP3 digital music format
has had, and will continue to have, a huge impart on how
people, gather, listen to and share music.
The MP3 format is a compression system for digital music
that helps reduce the size of a digitized song without
disturbing the sound quality. Digital music is converted
to MP3 format and made available for use, usually via
the web. MP3 files can be downloaded onto your computer
from the internet and special software, either commercial
or freeware. Using your computer and software you can
convert digital music from a CD into MP3 format.
MP3 files can be played in three different ways:
1. They can be played directly onto your computer.
2. They can be decompressed and recorded onto a CD.
3. These files can be played on a portable MP3 player.
The advantage of MP3 players is that they are small, lightweight
and rugged. They are a great way to carry your MP3 files
With a portable MP3 player, a personal computer, and the
appropriate software, you can do the following:
1. Obtain free or low-cost music from the web.
2. Create your own mix of music by downloading MP3 files
from the web and converting the tracks from CDs.
3. Listen to near-CD quality music wherever you go.
4. Listen to more music (up to 10 hours' worth).
If you want to convert your songs from your CDs into MP3
files, you can use ripper and encoder software. A ripper
copies a song's file from the CD onto your hard disk.
The encoder compresses the song into the MP3 format. By
encoding songs, you can play them on your computer or
take them with you on your MP3 player. The ripper and
encoder software may come with your MP3 player.
The specific instructions will vary with the individual
software programs, but the following steps will definitely
1. Place the CD from which you want to convert songs into
2. Select the track(s) that you want to convert to MP3
3. Convert the selected track(s).
4. Copy the new MP3 files on to your computer's hard disk.
Now you are ready to download these MP3 files into your
portable MP3 player.
Once you have MP3 files on your computer, you can use
the software that came with your MP3 player to download
the files into your MP3 player. Again, the specific instructions
will vary depending upon your software program and player,
but you will:
1. Create a playlist from your MP3 files.
2. Plug the player into your computer's parallel of USB
3. Transfer the MP3 files according to the instructions.
Once you have downloaded the MP3 files into your portable
MP3 player, you are ready to take your music anywhere.
Most MP3 players are small, lightweight, and solid-state.
Because most players are solid-state, there are no moving
parts to break down or skip, so the sound quality is uninterrupted
regardless of your physical activity. MP3 players are
equipped with various types of headphones or earpieces.
Portable MP3 players can play music longer than a portable
CD player. The length of play for a CD player is about
74 minutes, the length of one CD. However, the length
of play for an MP3 player depends upon its memory capacity,
which can be upgraded on some models. A standard MP3 player
can play for about half an hour (32 MB) to a few weeks
(40 GB)! Some models can be upgraded with additional memory
