About MP3 Downloads

MP3 files are audio recordings that are digitally compressed with the use of advanced mathematical formulas. Since the files are compressed so small, they are easily transferred from one digital device to another in a short period of time. The small size also allows users to place more MP3 files on a single CD than traditional music tracks. MP3 files may also be played on several different programs, including iTunes and Windows Media Player.[1]

Along with downloading MP3s from commercial websites, users may also copy music files from audio CDs to their computers and then convert them into MP3 files.[2] Several websites offer free streaming internet radio such as Napster.com, Spotify.com, and Pandora.com, but these services do not permit users to download MP3 tracks to their computers for free.[3] [4]
