Sample Based Hip-Hop Production

I'm fairly new to the production world and have purchased an Mpc 2000XL not knowing that I have to load it up with sounds. Anyone have any good resources for getting sounds into the machine to arrange? I've visited websites that advertise compact flash cards loaded with hits stabs riffs etc. are these quality sounds? Anyone ever purchase any of them? If so what are some reputable sites? Also if I'm producing on the Mpc and I don't have a Cd burner on it how can I get the tracks into my computer(G5 Quad Mac)? Would I need outboard F/x Gear? Also where can I find the best tutorials on using the Mpc 2000Xl? (The blue one.)

Can't really help you with sounds... I only use my MPC2000XL for drums and I have my own samples for that

Go buy records and start digging for sounds... it's the core to producing sample based hip hop. Find your sound!

A good starting point for sounds (for the lazy ones!)

The easiest way to get tracks in your G5 is to transfer them through the analog outs.

there are a few sites out there that are a little more geared towards that kind of topic (mpcfoums.com, ughh.com, etc...)
as for how to get sounds... it's a sampler... sample 'em.

Furthermore....

O.K. I have a few records lying around so the question is how do you get the best sound quality going in to the Mpc so that the samples don't sound too muddy and how do you get your samples to loop in sync with the song tempo for instance an old jazz record that was recorded at say 68 bpm and I'm recording at 99?
