We just received a promotional credit from Amazon.com for supposed "MP3
" downloads. Has anyone downloaded songs from Amazon.com? Are they real "MP3
" files that you can burn to a CD??????
According to the advertising these are DRM free "MP3
" files. The problem of course, is that before taking any offer you need to read between the lines to figure out what you are really getting. See: Troubleshooting MP3 Downloads
What makes me skeptical:
1. There is no affirmative statement that you are getting an actual file with a ".mp3
" extension. Is seems that you may be getting a file with a ".amz
2. It appears that you may need Amazon.com "MP3 Downloader
". I don't need another proprietary player.
3. Amazon.com only lists Windows Media Player and Apples iTunes as being compatible players. Amazon does NOT
mention any capability to place your purchased music files on a CD or a USB drive. The absence of such affirmative language would seem to imply that you cannot "move
" your songs and that you would be restricted to the stated proprietary players. So no listening to your music in your car?
Anyone have any experience with how this works and what you would actually getting?
