Topic: Corrupt MP3 ( song files
Hi. I have been downloading songs from onto my laptop and then playing them through the software. I am increasingly seeing songs becoming corrupt (meaning ERROR when I drag them into a deck). I am renaming songs once downloaded from the site and then placing them into music genre folders.

An example of the nature of the renaming would be "01. Thriller" to "Thriller - Michael Jackson". Could this be the reason files are becoming corrupt?

Or, perhaps, if I am dragging songs in and out of decks while I decide what to play? Any help would be more is becoming painful and expensive to keep downloading playable versions during gigs.

Bad idea. I think you'll find that those purchases will not be regarded as legal in your home country.

An error message on a deck does not necessarily mean the track is corrupt. More likely the track cannot be found - i.e. you've renamed it or moved it since it was added to the VDJ database.

Thx for the input. I have renamed and moved the MP3s. Odd that only some of them turn out to be problems with my Pioneer DDJ-SB3

Can you please direct me to another website where I can economically (and on demand) download decent version of tunes? The "taking request" part of the night turns out to be an important success factor for my gigs.
