Hi, I'm having trouble getting the Music Sampler CD's. Is there any special condition? I'm in the US Store...

10:18 AM, September 30, 2005  
Blogger Ted said...

You're not the only one having trouble; other people are having trouble downloading the samplers too. I've contacted Apple and am waiting for a reply. I'll post again when they contact me.

While searching some unrelated info, I stumbled with a site that explains how to get the samplers ( http://www.macmegasite.com/node/1887 ). Quite painful and drastic, but I'll try it on Monday.

It didn't work with my shuffle. So, apparently it is only for selected iPod models.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Any update on those samplers yet? 'Cause let's face it, I'm not about to wipe 30 GB of music just to grab 13 or 16 songs.... The link indicates current iTunes users can grab 'em, so there MUST be a way, right?

1:50 PM, October 05, 2005  
Blogger Ted said...

I've emailed them twice and still nothing. I think they're ignoring me. I'm going to email them again. You might want to email them too. If enough people complain, maybe they'll do something.

I finally got a reply from Apple. Bad news. Looks like the offer for the iTunes New Music Samplers expired back in March. Here's a copy of the email I got:

----

Dear Ted,

Thank you for your interest in "Get Free iTunes Songsā€ promotion.

The iTunes "Get Free iTunes Songs" offer ended on March 23rd, 2005.
The sampler from this promotion is no longer available from the music store.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Please visit us often to find out about new promotions and features regarding iTunes and the iTunes Music Store at http://www.apple.com/itunes.

Sincerely,

I was wondering if the iTunes New Music Samplers are still available. These are the links:

http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewCustomPage?name=pageIPodNewUserMusicSampler2

I can add the albums to the iTunes shopping cart, but when I try to download them, I get an error message saying the items are no longer available. Other people have told me the same thing when they try to download them.

Thanks for you help,
Ted

It seems that the links for the weekly updated list of free songs does not work. i was going to subscribe but the buttons are not even acting like buttons - there's nothign to click. Maybe it's apples fault...

10:59 PM, October 27, 2005  
Blogger Ted said...

You don't see any little iTunes buttons? Hmmm. What browser and what OS are you using?

The iTunes links use images hosted by Apple and I know that Firefox blocks images not from the originating site. If you're using Firefox, select menu Tools > Options > Web Features and make sure "Load Images" is selected and "for the originating web site only" is unselected.

If you still have problems, post and let me know.

Blogger Brian said...

I feel pretty dumb....
I was trying to click the images of the buttons at the very top (which don't link anywhere). Once i realized the actual buttons were further down, i found out they do work. Thanks for the helpful hint though! (i use windows XP home and Firefox - which had the settings already as you suggested) Thanks again!

So ruby, you're from the UK? Mac Forums has this thread that tracks the free weekly songs in the iTunes Music Store with a UK section. But Apple only gives you a few free songs at a time. That's why I prefer mp3's.

There are many legal sites to get mp3's. You didn't say what kind of music you like, but these are a few of my favorite sites:

The Arrogants - One of my fave bands. I made a post about them, they're offering 2 of their previous albums and select songs from their newest album for free download. Just right-click and save-as the "music" links.

Amazon.com - Tonnes (UK spelling?) of free mp3's. Free registration required to download. I think you'll be able to access it. I didn't see a free music download section on Amazon.co.uk. Don't forget to use the browse links on the left.

Download.com - Not all artists offer free downloads here but the ones that do are pretty good. Check the download charts at the bottom of the front page.

Links to Tens of Thousands of Legal Music Downloads - This page has links to sites that point to more free music than any sane person can download. If you visit this site, prepare to never sleep again.

Hope this gets you started. Enjoy your new iPod. I'm very jealous.
