Question on online music stores

by jason_he / November 26, 2004 4:56 AM PST


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.

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!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
