Freegal User Tips
Here are a few tips to help you start downloading your favorite music quickly & easily.
Current limits are set at three downloads per week. Your counter will set back to zero each week on Monday morning. Then you can download three more tunes during the new week. If you do not download your three songs in any given week, you lose those three free downloads forever—in other words, use it or lose it each week.
Click and Save
When you’re ready to download a track, click the “Download Now” link, select “Save” at the prompt, and designate your flash drive as the drive you wish to save to. PLEASE NOTE: Anytime you click on the “Download now” link, even if you cancel the download, the download will count toward your weekly allotment.
Having trouble finding your band in the Artist Search box?
Find bands that begin with “The” in their name, alphabetized under the letter “T.”
Once in a while, your Internet connection may be interrupted or time out and you might experience an incomplete or problem download. Freegal Music allows you to download previously downloaded songs again, without using up one of your weekly downloads.
Use the Smart Search box for suggestions when you know the name of the album, artist, or song. As you type into the search box, a list of possible artist names, track names, or album names will drop down from the search tool. Click on one of the suggestions to access tracks from only that artist. If you type in a word and hit enter without selecting a suggestion, the search results will include anything that has that word in the track, name, or album. Use the Advanced Search to search by composer, or genre, as well as by artist, song, or album.
