I recently got a new pc with a cdrw dvd rw burner and nero express software
I figured out how to put in my own cd's and burn it to the hardrive using microsofts media player to do the job , My question is if I signed up for one of those web sites where they offer you songs for a dollar each I think comcast has one , so I imagine nero or media player would not be used but they have there own software to do it ,
Now finally for my question , instead of burning the songs to a cd or dvd I wonder if its possible to just burn it directly to my hardrive from there web site server ? Or is the only way burn it from comcast or wherever to cd and from cd to hardrive with media player  like I did with my own cds ??

i haven't used the online music services but i think they have DRM protection, meaning you can listen them and burn them limited times

While there have been technical methods of getting round it (usually with older software versions that only work until their DRM licence expires), the good old solution is to play-record using internal or external loopback - or to grab the digital data using Total Recorder.

Loopback recording may not be digitally accurate, but you can do it free, or buy a slightly more refined solution - http://www.tunebite.com/

One thing to watch out for, with a lot of the services, you only RENT the tracks on extremely poor terms... never mind listen and limited burn, it's usually limited listen and no burn!
Better to find some sort of internet radio tracker, and play or record from there.
