Thread: LimeWire Problem

  1. #1
    I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing an influx of corrupted mp3's on their computer? Sometimes I search a popular song and 90% of my results are corrupted. What's the deal?

    ive noticed that for some songs, mostly the really new popular songs. it was only a matter of time.. RIAA did the same thing with fastertracker and either dumbasses dont delete the files or RIAA sets up 1000pcs with the fake files on it...
    signature removed, check the boardrules.

    I don't use the Gnutella Network, so I shouldn't comment ...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnutella

    ... But I have friends that do, and like previously mentioned by another poster, it's always new, pop songs that are corrupt .. .. Gnutella isn't anything like the fasttrack network though

    I dont think its the riaa on this one. Its sponsored by ad companies i'm thinking, because they're named free ipod and they mention links to a site.

    glad I don't prefer "pop" music, although I have had this problem before once or twice. ya, probably corprate, riaa would just go after whoever is sharing the file

    I found that when searching for videos and some audio files you get .mov .wmv .asx files that are like 128kbs in size when it says the video is something like 2 hours long. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THEM. asx files especially can be used to send you to sites to "get a license" but the site can sometimes download malware of some sort, or charge you to view the video but you dont get access to it.
