Question on online music stores


Do online music stores like MusicMatch and Napster download MP3 files to your computer, so you can then transfer those to your player?

Also, I cannot seem to find any store that is compatible with the iAudio U2. Please help!

WMA formats are also fine, but I'm looking for an online store that has a large selection of popular music.

Re: Question on online music stores

Most of the big name stores provide music in a protected windows media audio format. I have the iAudio u2 and it does not play protected wma files currently. I'm hoping they will include support in a future firmware upgrade but I'm not holding my breath. Only a few sites will sell mp3 format music but they focus on lesser known and indi artists. See cnet's compatibility page at the following link;

BTW, despite this issue, I really like my U2!
