What is KaZaa / KMD ?


KMD ( KaZaa Media Desktop ), is a software of Sharman Networks,- one of THE BEST applications u can find on the internet if u wish download - Songs , Movies ( Latest as well as Classics ) , Trailers , Softwares ( sometimes along with the Cracks and KeyGens too ) , Any Text Documents , Pics / wallpapers , screensavers n much much more.... ABSOLUTELY FREE of cost !!


How does it work ?


Kazaa Media Desktop (KMD) uses peer-to-peer technology. This means that individual users connect to each other directly, without need for a central point of management.


All you need to do is install Kazaa Media Desktop (KMD) and it will connect you to other KMD users.


For example Peter downloads KMD and installs it onto his computer. Mary also has KMD installed on her computer. Peter uses KMD to search for a file he is looking for. KMD finds the file on Mary’s computer. Peter can now download the file directly from Mary.


Though Sharing is optional, active sharing is the key to useful peer-to-peer experiences. In order for everyone to benefit from the collaboration, users need to share appropriate files in accordance with the end user license agreement. Successful peer-to-peer is a two way street.


To start sharing, carefully select the files you would like to share. Use Windows Explorer to copy each of the files into your ‘My Shared Folder’.


How do you search for a file ?


To start searching for files, click on the ‘Search’ view button (located in the top tool bar between ‘Theater’ and ‘Traffic’ in the default ‘Classic’ skin). The ‘Search’ view will open.


For a Quick Search, just type the keyword you are looking for in the 'Search for:' box and click the 'Search' button. This will start a search and the results will be displayed on the right side of the screen.


To do a new search, just change the keywords in the 'Search for:' box and click the 'Search' button again.


Where can I get this software from ?


Sharman Networks owns two versions of Kazaa software:


Kazaa Media Desktop is ad supported software, distributed free of charge from kazaa.com and download.com.


Kazaa Plus is the premium version of Kazaa Media Desktop. Kazaa Plus contains no ads, and exclusive features. It costs US$29.95 and is only available from kazaaplus.com and download.com. Read about Kazaa Plus features at kazaaplus.com.


Can I burn files on to a CD?


You can burn files onto a CD for storage off your computer, however, you will need to use the software which came with your CD Burner or a separate piece of software, not Kazaa Media Desktop. Kazaa Media Desktop is not designed for this purpose.


Can you remove the advertising?


Sharman Networks' costs are covered through companies who advertise with them. They cannot afford to continue to offer you such a quality product with continual upgrades and technical developments without this revenue.


But still, you can download the lite version of kazaa, i.e., ''Diet K'' which is also a freeware and has no Ads.


How do I come to know if the file that i'm downloading is corrupt or not ?


Most common file types can be played/viewed/used within Kazaa Media Desktop. You can even preview the file that you are downloading after it's half downloaded...


This preview function may not function properly in some computers depending on their computer's speed and compatibility.... so u can download a software called ''KPE 1.0'' .


What is KPE ?


KPE stands for ''KaZaa Preview Extractor'' which saves the files that you are downloading after they are half done and saves them as preview files in the same ''My Shared Folder'' of KaZaa where the files are usually placed after getting downloaded (By Default). You may search for it on the Google.com ! You will find it with ease. (Download the older version 1.0 .... it's good enough !! )


Which is the Latest Version of KaZaa ?


Version 2.5.1 is the latest release of KMD Software by Sharman Networks. You can easily find it on the Download.com !! It comes along with a new VIRUS Protection software called ''BULLGUARD''.


Pros and Cons :


Pros :-




  • Can Download ANYthing and EVERYthing.




  • Very User Friendly




  • Free of Cost (KMD)






Cons :-




  • Takes up a huge amount of resources.




  • Not compatible with MAC systems yet.




  • Sometimes, gives an error when connected (which is not a very big problem though.... u can drag that error window aside and still keep working with the software)




  • AD Supported software (FULL of SPYware) .... an alternative would be ''Diet K''.




  • Some files (usually executable files such as softwares) are infected with viruses






(The new version comes along with a VIRUS protection software)




  • ADULT stuff can also be downloaded to a great extent (NOT recommended for ppl below 18 years... legally speaking)
