My other gripe is the price. Each track is around $1.69. If a CD has 16 to 19 tracks that would cost a total of $27.04 to $32.11 to download. Wow, that is dearer than actually buying a CD from the Warehouse. A CD that has a nice coloured booklet and a CD that copies to my iPod no problem at all.
Why am I going to pay more for an album that I have to download myself using my own bandwidth that costs me money, that only lets me copy a track a certain amount of times, that is device retarded, DRM crippled and format restricted (128kbps WMA).
Get a grip digiRAMA and all of you money sucking record companies. Give the consumers what they want at a realistic price otherwise you do deserve to be pirated!

DRM DRM, Beware go the worning bells, Also when you have a good sound system with expensive speakers, Windows Media especially at the low bitrates they encode at sound just awful.. LONG LIVE the CD, and uncompressed, unaltered recordings at a good price, I just bought $300 of music, Hey, at 70% off, who wouldn't

Have you followed the new French law dealing with DRM music?

Unless the industry can come up with a universal and future-proof DRM format, I will be buying CDs for a long time to come.

if you want to buy from digirama (which i advise against), buy the music, burn it to CD with WMP, then import the CD using itunes. Now you have nice shiny DRM-less MP3's. No hacking, just using approved functions of Microsoft Windows Media Player, and Apple iTunes to be able to listen to your music wherever you want. Downside - you will probably have to tag the music yourself (name, artist etc etc)

Just use iTunes - it's the biggest store by far (offers 6 million tracks) and it works with iPods.
