Looking for free music to download for iPod? Well, you definitely are not alone. In a single day, there can easily be thousands of people like you searching online for places where they can download free music for their iPods.
By now, there are millions of users who own this cool MP3 player. Surely, this large community would not mind packing their gadgets with songs and music they can transfer for free. The question is where you can find free music to download for iPod. Here are some tips to get you started.
1. File Format
Before you get all too excited, there is one thing you need to know. The iPod only reads and plays files in the following formats – AAC (16 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), MP3 (16 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV. So prior to downloading any piece of music, be sure to check if the site supports the formats.
Otherwise, you may have to convert them using audio file format conversion software. These can be quite costly. Even if you can get them from a freeware site, it will still take you lots of time just to convert the songs.
2. Music Genres
Another thing you might want to check is the kind of music they provide. Not every of such free sites offer a wide range of genres. Imagine if you can find one that comes with Alternative, Blues, Classical, Country, Dance, Children’s Music, Electronic, Folk, Hip-Hop/Rap, Jazz, Latin, Pop, R&B/Soul, Rock, Soundtrack and Vocals. Well, there are.
3. Safe To Use
By that, it is important to make sure that you can access and transfer files at the site safely. This means that you will be protected from adware, spyware and virus infiltration. The safest is to use popular sites like iLounge, Macidol and the like for quality music. Try the trial of eMusic which gives you 25 songs free.
As with any kind of file transfer online, there are risks involved when you find free music to download for iPod. As an added layer of PC protection, consider installing anti-virus on your PC.
