Im new to limewire...and everything has been going fine, but now my mp3 player has decided that all my songs that are bitrate 128 have turned fuzzy...they sound like an old dying cassette.. so i go onto limewire to search for the same songs with a different bitrate, but they only seem to have bitrate 128 for most songs...is there anything i can do??????

Adrms, try playing them through Limewire Media Player; if that doesn't work you can use other media players, most popular being the Windows Media Player. As for me, I never download anything less than 128 bitrate as I consider 128 and above to be best in sound quality. It is true, 128 pops up most often, but if you're patient there are higher bitrates out there. Don't think there's any way to get more higher bitrate files in your searches unless Sleepless has some tricks up his sleeves-sorry to put you on the spot there Sleepless.



Keep searching - you'll find higher bitrate files eventually, it just seems like an eternity for those files to show up,

My advise is to not rely on Limewire for quality. Install a proper BitTorrent client like Azureus or uTorrent and join private music tracker sites.

note:

1. Private sites demand you seed back i.e. acceptable ratio (what acceptable ratio is depends on the site. Read Rules and FAQ when joining for that info and other important to know stuff).

2. If you try and cheat ratio. YOU WILL GET BANNED. Bans may be transferred to several other sites as well. In other words just don't


Most private sites have forums. Some have request systems.

Some have bonus points for seeding which help with your ratio.

OK, thank you both for your help. I will try those suggestions. :idea:

Sleepless, I agree with you about torrent sites; I've got utorrent, Azureus and BitComet; but when there's no torrent file for what you're looking for LW is an alternative. There aren't torrents for everything, wish there were though. Like I mentioned before the **** albums aren't available as torrents, nor is ****. Definitely have bittorrent programs, no argument there, but always have LW to fall back on in case you can't find a torrent for what you're looking for. Just my opinion.



Thank you,
Andrew Perkins

On the sites I'm on I usually just request things that I can't find.. or actually go out and buy them if I really want them. Mostly I only buy stuff to support artists though i.e. anything RIAA related doesn't make a penny on me. I refuse to support an organization that thrives on suing homemakers and college students.

Sleepless, I removed .flac from the filter list, but I'm not getting any .flac files in my searches. I would have thought that these files would show up now that they're not on the filter list. Guess maybe nobody's sharing .flac files at this time.


Thanks for all your help; any help is greatly appreciated,

I remember very few people were sharing them back when I used Limewire also. But I used to just search by extension and browse through the search results.

Thanks a lot Sleepless! The topic really helped especially with all these links.
