The most common question I keep seeing over and over from new members is How do I download?, which leads to the question, How do I upload?, because of the ratio system. So I am writing this topic, so I don't have to dig out previous topics where I've helped folks before, this way I can easily find my post and refer them here, hopefully it will be helpful in the future.

Please read the above 4 links first!

After reading the guidelines you will realize you need to compress your mp3s. You have to use a software like winrar or winzip to compress your mp3s before uploading to the board, and the files have to meet the requirements as listed in the guidelines. And then you have to maintain a 1:2 upload to download ratio (in other words, for every 1MB you share, you can download 2MB), so if the ratio is above .50 under your name, you can download with no problems. You can upload, however, at any time. You can find winrar free here:
CODE
http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm


If you still have problems uploading, make sure you have compressed (.rar or .zip) the .mp3 files.

Whenever you REPLY or create a NEW TOPIC you should see a window like the one below.
You will see the file attachments box with a BROWSE button, click on that and browse to your file, then you have to click "Add This Attachment", and then you have to wait as your browser uploads the song to page. After that is done, (can take a while depending on your ISP speed) you click the Add Reply button to make your post. You will be able to tell when it's done because your page will no longer be loading, it will refresh, and you will see a white box with your attachment inside it, it will read something like "you have used 4 mb of attachment space for this post......." and you will see a Remove button (deletes the attachment) and an Add Into Post button (which shows the attachment inside the post, not necessary, but nice to use). Good luck!!

Thanks but inspite of following all these guidelines, I am NOT able to upload any song - it says "Message is too big" even for a 1 MB song - so what is the solution?

Hari Ram has also posted a helpful topic on this:
http://www.hamaraforums.com/index.php?show...c=39390&hl=

Now we have at least 3 folks (you're counted in that Marci!) that are willing to help when we are around!

If you are totally new to forums in general I highly recommend HIS thread, as it is sure to cover everything very thoroughly!

I dont understand a thng.

If anyone can atleast email me and tell me what is going on it would eb great.

Thanks,
MusicLover

Hello Admin jee,

Thanks a lot for all you explanation. I appreciate it much.

I have a dilemma now. I am uploading all the files as .zip file. However, when I am downloading other member's upload, they are getting downloaded as .rar files. blink.gif

Now what is a .rar file? Am I doing something wrong while downloading them?

If I am doing right, how can I extract MP3 file from the .rar file? Hmm...seems to be a little confusing to me... blink.gif

Please explain.. unsure.gif

Thanks a lot in advance!!!
MusicLover

Enjoy!!!
