Hi Guys,

I thought I share this with you!

Just a little shoutout to the people at beatport! Here's the story:

I lost my complete music library due to a severe hd raid failure (Fire and smoke actually coming from the drive!! (Lacie FW)) during backup from drive x to drive y...Drive Y got corrupted too...Aaargh!

After the mailing the guys at beatport explaining the situation they granted me a redownload of my entire library!!! Which is awesome especially since I always download WAV and that's a lot more data than the mp3's...

I think that's great and I'm really thankfull!

With the goods and bads, I'm also pro- Beatport :) Nice to hear you got your stuff back, I'm getting a Time Capsule to have it as backup disc and create some WiFi when I'm out too :)

I'm glad beatport helped you out. Must have been sad to get all those tracks again.
Beatport is not treating me as good as you. The new beatport is killing me. It will load 1/10 times. It loads to 100% and stops. Sometimes it even knocks out my internet so I have to restart my router. Any of you guys had any similar problems?

I had problems at first, but it was because the flash plugin would not install properly. I saved my bookmarks, re-installed firefox, installed flash plugin, andd restored my bookmarks. Everything has been good since then.
