Need help building a music library
I know that for most people this is almost common knowledge. So I realize I am way behind on this subject matter. That is why I am asking all of you computer and tech type people these questions.
My wife went out and got us some MP3(4) players. They are not the high end kind but they work just fine. I no longer want CDs or any similar type of music storage. I want to build and maintain a decent music library that I can update as I hear a song I like. Eventually I even want to get rid of the head units in our trucks. But that is for another conversation. Anyhoo, I have a good amount of music that I collected from other people on my external hard drive. But I have not been able to update any of it since 2009. I use to use Limewire but after losing two hard drives to viruses I said no more. I understand that if I want “safe” downloads I have to pay for it. But how do I know which sites are safe? How do I know which ones will not up the price on me? How do I know which sites will not rip me off? How do I find the best value? Are there other ways? Once I figure out how to get the music I will get into details about what I plan to do with it.
