    Have you looked through Micro Mart, you can usually find some good deals in there!! I think it costs about 90p <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    for dvds: It'd take ages for DVDs to download 'cos their so big...don't know if there are any sites, sorry <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    for music: theres a number of places - mp3sound.com
    musiccity.com
    kazaa.com, etc <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    for other stuff you could try:
    download.com - you can download programs from there, most of them are trial or freeware...but some of them are quite useful <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    For DVD's (DivX's) I use hotline client- www.bigredh.com but Im on a uni connection so its pretty fast for me. It will take a while too download on 56k but you can resume a download on it so its down too how patient you are I guess
