    Nothing legal, but I've found this to be fairly decent.

    As Clint said, there's no legal method of downloading music for free. However, there's a slightly roundabout way. You can search for the music you want on YouTube, and then download the video using a program like YTD Video Downloader. Then, you can use another program and extract just the music from the video, after which you can burn the resulting music to a CD. As I said, it's roundabout and I'm not too sure if it's actually legal.

    You're welcome, Phil. In short, if you pay for the music (I'm pretty sure Amazon.com sells music in Thailand), you can download it and burn it to a CD. Or else, you can rip the music from a music CD you own and store it on your PC. Those are the only legal options available.

    There are several subscription music services. Some offer free services. You'd need to check each out to find what they allow or sell.

    xbox music

    Rhapsody

    Pandora

    iTunes

    See music downloads for many more links.

    Google also sell music on their Play site. I find it good for the odd thing that is only available in one country (apparently).

    cheers, Paul

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    It's continues to be a very sad state of affairs where often the best quality and diversity of music is still to be gotten illegally,
    with little or no other recourse for the average honest person, unless you are willing to accept the DRM fiasco.

    ...and I'm talking high quality variable rate mp3 (VBR) and FLAC/APE without the dreaded restrictions that many recording labels demand be added.
    Recording companies want you buying disks, but most of all they want you buying their disks, and doing every annoying thing to
    prevent otherwise. (DRM restrictions)

    It grieves me to say that, despite even the worst threat of computer infection, the best quality and format of
    music these days are still of the "illegal" means of obtainment.
    WHY: because far too many people are so incredibly proficient at cracking DRM and presenting high quality music. (album covers and all)
    When you can get anything from a single song to an entire discography of DRM free music, there's just no incentive to pay for it anymore.

    It's a business model built around uber maximizing a recording industry profit. But little do they realize that they have LONG since eroded it.
    I'd like to download high quality music without the DRM crap added, I have zero problem paying for it, but, alas, it just does not exist
    to the extent and diversity that many, like myself, want.

    Check with your favorite artists though, they may offer selling their own music for download independently from a dreaded music label.
    More and more artists are doing so

    not everything is illegal to dl

    you can certainly buy music from many places
    some people give it away

    but as was noted a lot of it is copyrighted and you cant legally do it
    so be sure what it is and where it came from first

    i would use two programs
    one to download and save
    and then another one to burn cds

    requiring both in one severely limits your options

    Phil:

    I download music from Amazon.com. Typically I pay about $1 per song. Completely legal.

    When you get all your songs downloaded, you can put them into folders, with one folder for each CD you want to create, and then copy each folder to a CD. As long as your CD player will play MP3 format, you're good to go.

    If your CD player is old and won't play MP3 format (that's how mine is), I believe you can use something like Windows Media Player to burn a CD using the traditional (WAV) format. You won't be able to fit as much music on a CD, but the CD will play on ALL CD players.
