In most cases I buy all my stuff.

For CDs I rip them to my computer and add them to iTunes & Media Monkey which makes it much easier to yhem put them on any device I want to listen to.

Only problem with my method is im not sure what would happen if my hard drive packed itself in so im investigating this whole "cloud" concept. Though with almost a terabyte of music on my hard drive I dont know if any cloud service could host that amount of data. Any suggestions from anyone would be much appreciated in that regard.

For LPs and cassettes (remember them) I have a device which hooks into my usb port and plays them whilst at the same time ripping them to the hard drive. ......then its straight to iTunes or media monkey again.

Once this is done I only use the mp3 files for listening. I put the CDs and LPs away and never play them again. The only time I use the originals is to look at lyrics / credits / artwork etc but the disc's themselves are never played again so they remain in perfect condition.

I only download albums I cant source originals of.......just a matter of principle there. I really don't care if someone else downloads everything and never buys an album. Each to their own, but that's not the way I do it.
