    Hi hope you can help!

    I want to use one of these really cheap (and completly legal) Russian mp3 download sites. The problem is that it involves downloading software to download the files (like Get Right and Flash Get) and these all seem to be designed for windows.

    Does anyone know of an answer for a mac user? Is there a site dedicated for macs?

    You do know they are completely illegal, don't you.
    Don't you? :confused: :eek:

    download mp3s like this

    Google Search for:

    intitle:"index.of" (mp3) [I]Artist/Track[/I].[I]Name[/I] -html -htm -php -asp -cf -jsp
    legal? you be the judge. most of the mp3s are from a public index page that college/university students use to share music.

    Ok fair enough.

    I know very little about mp3 downloading. But seriously is there a way of doing it? Or is it just the normal torrent stuff?

    I am a computer muppet so be patient!

    use Limewire or BitTorrent or the Google search way i said above. remember "Artist/Track.Name" means type both/either the artist name and/or track name separated by periods between each word.

    be cafeful though as downloading mp3s may be illegal in your country. from my knowledge its illegal to upload music to peers and fine to download songs from a peer to peer network if you are using them for personal use and are not selling them for profit.

    You can join a file sharing forum. Or you can use,


    ShareMiner just uses a Google Custom Search which trawls the file upload services.

    I have seen those russian sites. They are a little iffy at best.
    I think its better to use torrents. I don't know all the legal
    defenses and loopholes there, but so far they have not gone away.
    And they are useful in finding some rare music that won't probably be
    released in your country.
