Is there a site that I can buy MP3s and freely play and burn on whatever machine I want? I dont like restrictions, for example, WMA files that has to be played by WMP9 on the same computer, etc.

I mainly get mine from buymusic.com (http://www.buymusic.com) or Napster, and sometimes iTunes. After I have a few I burn them to CD as a normal CDA file (the kind a normal player could handle) then rip that to MP3. It's a bit of a hassle, but it means I can burn and/or transfer as many times as I want with no more restrictions.

Yeah, I use Itunes as well. I just love their player and tools better than the others. If I need mp3's I have to burn CDA and rip back though. MP4 seem to be a little better than mp3's though.
