Thread: Getting started the right way

  1. #1
    Hi,
    I`d like to know how to get started without having to wade through lots of technical stuff that I don`t understand.
    Kazaa Lite - Bittorrent - Emule ??
    Which programme would be easier for a beginner like me ?
    I`m still finding odd bits of stuff on my HDD from previous attempts, so I would really like to do it the right way this time and ask someone who knows - like where should I download the software (not download.com - right ??) and a few easy steps to get the MBs moving.

    All suggestions welcome

    no program is easy the first time,
    if you wanna do it good the first time you need to read FAQs/guides.

    I started out with napster, then when that closed i used a lot of small no-name apps until finally using kazaa lite/morpheus for a long time and finding this forums.

    Limewire is a lot like kazaa lite/napster/etc (which i dont recomend!) so i'd give that a shot first, or emule like vb1234 said (altho i've had bad luck with it but that's probably just because i haven't given it much of a chance).

    After you learn those programs you can move into torrents and/or newsgroups which are in my opinion the best forms of p2p but take a bit more knowledge to use properly/safely/quickly (large learning curves).

    I think emule would be a good start for you because there's a lot of sites explaining how to configure it properly and most important, you can signup to a forum and download only verified movies/music/apps...

    With bittorrent you would have to start probably with public trackers and get problems with fakes, virus, etc

    Good luck

    if you're after music (but have some yourself to share) i've found soulseek to be very good.

    you should check it out.
    you look like i need a drink....
