    I got an mp3 player for my birthday, but I don't have any mp3's to put on it, where can I get some? I'm not really into main stream bands, I like Christian rock bands, like Pillar, 12 Stones, Falling Up, Demon Hunter, Emery, Anberlin..

    but im having trouble finding anywhere to buy mp3's from these bands :( 

    I got all their CD's, but my discman broke, and now I can't listen to any of them.

    Is it a sin to pirate Christian music?

    Use Windows Media player to rip the songs off your CDs. Then I like to use MP3Gain to normalize the audio levels.

    Though I will not comment on your taste in music I will advise you to use Audiograbber to rip them to your PC.

    iTunes has some, although you'd have to convert them to mp3 if your player doesn't support the iTunes format.

    No, it isn't as long as you aren't sharing them over the internet.

    There were MP3 players LONG before there were legal downloading services.

    I think im just gonna sell the mp3 player and get a discman. I tried itunes, but if its not gonna work, I dont wanna sign up and waste the money just to not have it work.

    I even broke down and tried the ripping software that came with the mp3 player, I know it's illegal to copy the cd's but I tried anyways.. it didn't work, then I got frusterated and used windows media player but then the songs wouldn't work on teh mp3 player...

    bah.

    too much of a hassle. I'll come back to mp3's when the sell them in stores.

    A) Despite what the RIAA may claim, it is not illegal to make copies of CDs you purchased, be they tapes, CDs, MP3s or MP3 CDs...or youtube videos of you 'dancing' to a song

    B) Other than maybe getting rid of CDs in favor of say, small flash drives with an album on it, I don't see how MP3s could ever be available in-store

    I don't know of any offhand, but you can use other software to change WMAs into MP3s. Also, how exactly did it "not work"? If you explain the exact nature of the problem with the software that came with the thing we might be able to help more.

    It’s only illegal to copy that CD if you are going to sell or give the copy away. Other wise your MP3 player and Windows Media player wouldn’t have that function.

    With the Windows Media player I’m guessing it was set to rip them as WMA files. All you have to do is click ‘options’ then the “Rip” tab and you can change the format.

    Hey Mike. The only way you would commit a crime is if you were to make a copy of your cd and give that copy to your friend. Making a MP3 copy isn't illegal, as long as you don't share the copy. Thats what the Canadian law says about it, the last time I checked. And I thought RIAA can't do anything to Canadians?

    Anyways, you are using it for your self. You bought the CD, so you own a copy already. No point in actually wasting extra money just to get a MP3 version. Besides, the Xbox and 360 will copy a cd, and save a digital version on the console. Why isn't that illegal? :)

    I can't speak for Canada, but in the US copying a CD for personal use is perfectly legal. It falls under Fair Use and is spelled out clearly in the law. The major record companies get a small cut of blank CD and cassette sales to appease the RIAA.
