Which ways can I currently download music from the internet, ( no google translate), translated by my self

You're almost there. "Currently" wäre "aktuell" or "momentan". "Aktuelle" belongs to "Musik", making it "current music" :) regarding your question below: "Wegen" is the dative plural of "Weg" = "way", so that was right.
I'd have translated the whole sentence as "what are the ways in which I can download current music from the internet?"

"Wegen" doesn't translate to "ways" ... plural of weg (way) is wege (ways) it looks like. Good attempt, though. :)

It's a dative plural, which does indeed translate to "ways".

Thanks, may I ask what "wegen" translates to?

"Because of" or "Due to" or "On account of" (which isn't the same thing as a bank account or Duolingo account)

Yes, that's one meaning of "wegen", but (despite the missing capitalization) it means "ways" in the sentence we're discussing here.

I am answering the question, not asking for help. ;-)
