Downloading Entire CD's?

Postby LukeW9027 » Fri Mar 24, 2006 5:23 pm

I've been hearing about a sofware program that you can actually download Full albums from an artist. Its kind of like a LimeWire or Warez.

i forgot the name, and was thinking about it.

Does anyone know of this program? or something like it?

I think you're talking about torrents. There are a bunch of different programs that you can use with them and yeah a lot of times you download a whole album instead of one song.

They are all torrents, bitcomet is a program that you use to connect to the "trackers" which is how you connect to other people.

I like BT, a lot of people hate it thinking its slow, but its better than anything else to me because its a lot less likely to get a virus and its free.

For torrents I use utorrent. When I switched to that from BitTorrent I saw a big increase in speeds uploading and downloading. Went from around 19 kb/s to 50 kb/s and I can get 100-200 kb/s uploading. ;-D
