System Requirements

The system requirements for music downloads are:

  • Windows 2000 or XP , Macintosh or Linux
  • 233 MHz or higher processor (most computers meet this requirement)
  • At least 64 MB of RAM
  • A sound card
  • Speakers or headphones (if you want to play music on your computer)
  • An Internet connection (broadband recommended)
  • Internet Explorer version 6.0 or higher
  • Most media players (we recommend Real Player version 10 or later)

We recommend that you have a high-speed Internet connection, but it is not required to download music. An average-length song will download in about one minute on a high-speed connection. On a dial-up connection, the same song may take up to 20 minutes.

Most music downloads will occupy approximately 6 MB of disk space (this is a small amount). Your disk space requirements depend on the number of songs you want to add to your music library.
