Rhapsody S@$ks! And it is holding my songs hostage! Help!

by 2001redcobra / August 7, 2008 4:45 AM PDT

Hello everyone! Unfortunately I have Real Rhapsody for my MP3 provider! Right now I cannot burn my songs that I purchased even though on my grid it says it is OK to do so. When I drag the songs to be burned; a bunch of ! marks come up and say that you do not own the rights to this song! Plus I received some email from them saying that they are changing by the end of the month and basicly by what I could gather if I don't burn my songs to CD and archive I will lose them! What I want to do is 1- Archive all my songs first. 2- Find a MP3 site that works well so I can take my files and transfer them to my friends IPOD NANO as well as my Zune MP3 player as well as purchasing songs that will play well for both players. I know I may asking for the world here; but ANY help on any of the above would be of a great help to me!

can't help you with Rhapsody

Perhaps you should call technical support or customer service. There should be a help menu within Rhapsody that should point you in the right direction. If you purchased them rather than got them through their subscription service then you should be able to burn them.

Not that this will help you now, but Rhapsody has gone DRM free as of June 30, 2008 and now offers all of its purchased content as mp3s. Before then, only some of them were offered as mp3s.

If you are through with Rhapsody, Napster and Amazon.com offers mp3s that will work on all players. Napster's catalog is bigger. However, if you go with Napster, be aware that it is also a subscription service (like Rhapsody). You don't have to subscribe to buy their mp3s, but you find yourself inadvertantly signed up for it if you're not careful.

I already spent 45 minutes with Rhapsody's tech support with no avail. Will check into Napster though

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?
