Why am I forced to download song-by-song instead of just downloading full albums?
Bandwidth costs money. The site currently uses about 1200GB of traffic PER DAY. When mass downloads were allowed for everyone, this amount tripled, because people very carelessly downloaded everything in a row. Our servers were overloaded. This is why now you can download full albums if you give something back to the site.
Why don't you place ads on the site?
For a better user experience, I've decided not to use advertising on this site, nor any misleading links or popups. All the files on this site are delivered free thanks to our donators who foot the bill for servers.
How does giving back work?
To download albums in full, you need to give back something to the site. You can do this in three ways - by donating, by uploading albums or by referring people to the site. You register, get your own link, give the link to other people, they click on it, you can download zipped albums.
Giving you money, are you nuts?
Servers don't pay for themselves. We have no advertising. At the end of the day, if nobody donated actual money, this site would cease to exist.
$19.99 for 6 months seems expensive!
That comes out at $0.11 per day, or $3.33 per month, that's about as low as you can go.
If I donate, how long will it be until I can download?
It's an automatic process, so you'll be able to download immediately.
I donated, but can't download!
This could be because
1. You paid with an eCheck. If you do that, you will have to wait a few days until PayPal clears the check.
2. You didn't return back to our website after donating. Don't worry! You just have to wait a few hours and your account will be automatically updated. If its not updated within a day, contact me and I'll sort it out for you.
How do I cancel the subscription?
If you paid via Paypal, you have to log in to your Paypal account, find the subscription there and cancel it.
If you paid by credit card, you can cancel it on the same page here
How do I request an album?
Please send in all requests via My Requests.
I want to submit a requested album! How do I upload it to the site?
Please read the Upload FAQ here
How many people need to click on my link until I can download an album?
For every 1 visitor that clicks your link, you will be able to mass download 1 album. Albums that you have selected as mass downloads will appear in My Downloads under "My Albums". From there on, you will be able to download this album at any time.
How do I get people to click on my link?
Some of the ways are:
What if I want to give my friend a link to a specific album, such as Need for Speed Underground 2?
You can add your referral at the end of any URL, all you need to do is add "?u=xxx" where xxx is your userid. So the full URL to that album where you will get credited for the referral is https://downloads.khinsider.com/game-soundtracks/album/need-for-speed-underground-2?u=xxx
My friend clicked on my link, but nothing happened!?
This happens either because you friend is already on this site, or he is using a proxy/VPN service, or this friend is actually you! :)
Please note, the only way for me to determine if the person clicking the link is actually somebody else, not you clicking your own link, is by IP address. So if your friend is sitting next to you connected to the same wifi network, there is no way for me to determine its simply not you. Such clicks are automatically discounted.
