    Downloading music on Anarcho-Punk.net is very easy. But since some peoples still don't understand how to download and extract music, here is a step-by-step tutorial:


    Step 1 : Download WINRAR

    You will need to download and install WINRAR to extract the .ZIP or .RAR archives (a ZIP/RAR file is a compressed file that contain the music files (mp3) you want to listen)

    Go here and select a version to download, then install the application:

    Step 2 : Find a band to download on Anarcho-Punk.net

    [​IMG]
    Use this search box at the top right of the screen. Type the name of the band or the album you are looking for, check the option "Search only in Downloads" and then click on "Search" button


    Step 3 : Select an album in the search results

    This is what the search results page will look like:

    Select one of the albums in the search results (just click on the name of the album)


    Step 4 : Click the download link

    You will now be brought to the related thread of the forum.

    Find and click on the download link - it should look like this (see above)


    Step 5 : Download from mediafire

    90% of the files of this website are hosted on mediafire.com
    After clicking the download link, it should lead you to a page that looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    Wait a few seconds and then just click on the link called "Click here to start download.."

    Note: Sometimes the files are hosted on different hosts like megaupload.com. If this is the case, then you will need to type a confirmation code. Just type the letters you see in the image (top right of the screen) and then wait 45 seconds. Then your download link will appear.


    Step 6 : Extract the files from the archive

    After your download is finished, you should now have a .ZIP or .RAR file

    Open the folder on your computer where you saved the file, and then right click on the file
    [​IMG]
    After right clicking on the file, you should see an option called "Extract here" in the menu.
    (if you don't see this option, it's because you have not installed WINRAR. See Step 1)

    After selecting "Extract here", a folder with the name of the albums will be created and you will now be able to play mp3 the files with your music player !
