  1. Advantages is that you can listen to whatever music that you want and to download it to one of the recorders that you bring with you.
    Disadvantages are that often there is a fee to downloading music from the net. Also when you download there is a risk of having your computer infected with some kind of virus.
    My personal opinion is that unless you are absolutely that this site is safe-free from any kind of a virus that may infect your computer, forget about it because you are asking for trouble in ridding the virus from your computer.

  2. Are you referring to free illegal music downloaded from P2P file sharing programs? If that’s the case, these programs sometimes cause spyware to be installed on your computer. The most notorious is Kazaa. EMule, Edonkey, and limewire on the other
    hand seem to be much better.

    Advantages are you can find almost any song you want. I have downloaded lots of oldies which I might not find easily in stores near me. Another advantage is that if the song is illegally shared,
    you end up getting ur music for free.

    To sum up, the advantage are: easy fast search. Disadvantages are you might up downloading software that harms your computer & the artist don’t get rewarded for their art.

    Thanks

  3. A advantage are u can have fun listenin to amazing music that you really like ….the disadvantages are that you could download some music and it could be illegal. Another disadvantage is that you could download a song and it could possibly have a extremely bad virus that could cause your computer to run more slowly or just crash your CPU ………………Well I hope i helped you.
