    I'd like recommendations for an online music service. I know there are several out there... And no, I'm not really interested in services featuring mainly underground artists a la mp3.com. I used Rhapsody for a while, and would definitely use it again if only trying to discontinue the service had not been such ****. For some odd reason you can sign up online, but you can't cancel your account online - instead you have to call them by phone and face a third degree as to why you want to cancel. :x

    Depends on the player mostly- what do you have? I prefer Napster because I can easily burn the MP3 and rip it back without the DRM- that way I can actually burn it as much as I want.

    Itunes.
    Honestly, its the only one I trust. You can burn your purchased music as much as you want with it as well.

    Can you listen to full albums as much as you like for no additional cost (and I don't mean 96 kHz preview samples)? Or only download?

    Download only. You can preview them all online through the iTunes store.
    The problem with all those rent services is that when you stop paying them, all the songs you downloaded stop working.

    I agree with iTunes. You say you have a Zen, which means you will have to do some converting (either burning to a cd and re-ripping, or using some software, but iTunes has the best selection.

    Yeh but burning/ripping cds or finaly finding a freeware application (like I did) is just a nuisance because the Zen players will play WMA, Mp3, (I think) WAV, and a couple others, but not Mp4, or M4A.
