Are MP3s or other facsimiles reliable enough not to have to back up music files? Should I have a backup?

At the very least you should have a list of all the MP3s that you have, and a back-up of the rare ones. You know, ones that took you a long time to find, or you had to rip them from Youtube, or something.

Just in case you get a virus or something that shuts your computer down.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Actually, so far there're only copies of my own CD's. I wouldn't want to rip all those CDs again. Thats why I asked.

external HD's are fairly cheap nowadays.
Just get one and copy the files over.
Makes for a decent backup for ya.

Actually, its a "in the future" type of question. I already back them up into an 8 Gig Jump Drive just in case the 2 Gig GPX audio player proves to be unreliable. I don't want to have to Rip all those CD's again and I don't want them clogging up my computer either.
