    This is the first time I ever had this happen. I bought a song from Traxsorce for $1.99. The song is called Call Out by DJ Fisherman. I heard the song on YouTube. It just came up while I was driving. I loved the song and looked it up on Traxsorce. I found the song and bought it. Today I was making a CD for me to listen to on Tuesday on my way to the DJ Expo.

    I loaded the song and it said error. Anybody have this happen to them?

    My guess (based on the limited info presented) is that you made an MP3 disc and your radio can't play MP3 discs.

    My bad. I'm sorry. It was loaded on my external hard drive and came up error.

    Something like that happened to me long ago (remember dial up?). It's possible for an mp3 to get corrupted during the download. I contacted Amazon and the sent me another copy.

    They really like their music at $1.99/song.

    Most services sell a song for $2 or less. I remember the time when you had to go to a record store and by records. No going online to get a song or album.

    It has made it easier to become a DJ. The sad part is it cost much much much less to obtain a library large enough enough to do an event. Meaning some don't know the years it took to become a truly dedicated DJ to their craft.

    Before you download a song, make sure it tells you what FORMAT the song is in.
    It may not have been an mp3 or .wav file.
    (could have been Windows Media Player, aiff, or mp4)
