How do I download a song on my computer?

When you've found a song you want, click on the “Download Now” link next to your chosen song. At the prompt, select Save and choose where you want to save the song. If you’re not presented with a prompt, try rightclicking the link and choosing the option to save the link (i.e. Save Target As, Save Link As, or Download Linked File, etc.). This will let you choose where to save your song.

Note: Anytime you click on the “Download Now” link, even if you decide to cancel or play it, the download will count towards your weekly allotment. You may have started a download then changed your mind and canceled it. Once you click the “Download Now” button, it cannot be reversed. It will count towards your download limit even if you cancel or choose “play” instead of “download.” To avoid this, please use the song clips to ensure you are downloading a song you want in your music library. We cannot credit a download.

Can I download a whole album?

Downloads are on a per song basis and subject to the number of songs allowed each week. Therefore, you may download an album, but it would have to be done on a song-by-song basis.

What is the song clip?

The song clip is a randomly chosen 30-second clip of a song, so you can decide whether or not you want to download it.

Is there a download manager to install on my computer?

No, Freegal Music utilizes the browser to download music, so there is no need to install anything on your computer. That’s one of the benefits of the site.

How does the recent downloads functionality work?

In the Freegal Music navigation bar, you will see “Recent Downloads.” Here you have the ability to re-download a previously downloaded song up to two more times within 2 weeks from the original download for reinstall purposes, in case your connection timed out. This re-download will not count against your download totals.

Is there Digital Rights Management (DRM) on the music files?

No! These files are downloaded as MP3 files which are compatible with any MP3 Player or device. You can transfer the music to any computer, MP3 player or even burn it to a CD. Copyright laws apply for all music downloaded.

How do I burn music to a CD?

Each computer system is different. You can use iTunes, Windows Media Player or a third party software like Roxie. Simply follow the instructions found in the software for burning your CD.

How do I get the songs into Windows Media Player?

If the song does not open directly into Windows Media Player, simply launch Windows Media Player then click and drag the song into the Windows Media Player window or simply select: File > Import File. To select multiple songs select: File > Import Folder. Select the file(s) you wish to add then click OK. The song(s) will now appear in your Windows Media Player library.
