basic tips
« on: September 24, 2020, 02:27:15 PM »
Hi all

I'm a vinyl collector, new to the site, and find a lot of great stuff in here in terms of digging, but I am struggling with being able to access files. I'm a novice when it comes to downloading music online so I'm finding a lot of dead ends when I go to download certain links.
I am changing the urls before searching but I keep getting 403 error messages. I'm guessing it's to do with my browser but I'm not sure.

Any tips on this and other handy hints would be greatly appreciated.

cheers

Some are just dead links and I'd request a re upload.  Zippyshare is banned in some countries hence and you get a forbidden/ error message.  These can be downloaded via  proxy site-- i.e., proxysite.com.
You'll get used to the various sites and navigate them soon enough.

Yeah, most likely these links are just expired. If there are any specific things you'd like to hear, just post a comment in the thread or in "Requests" and someone will help you out :)
