Downloading files to your computer

Once you have purchased an eAudio product, click on the My Library link, then click on the "eAudio" button.
Click on the product you wish to download. You will then be given the option to download from two different file types:
  • Download for iTunes. These files are in the format M4B. These are a special type of file for audio books, which enable bookmarking on supported audio players. They are recommended for use with iTunes and iPod/iPad/iPhones.

  • Download MP3 files. This download type is recommended if you are going to listen on Windows Media Player (PC), or any other MP3 Player that does not support M4B files.

Once you have decided which file type to download, you then have two download options:
  • Download each file individually. This will present you with a list of all the audio files for that book, which you can download separately.

  • Download all files at once. This will download all the files in a single compressed ZIP format file. To extract the individual files from this single ZIP file, please follow these instructions:

  • Windows XP or 7
  • Using Windows Explorer, browse to your Downloads folder location where you saved the ZIP file.
  • Right-click on the file, and select the "Extract All" option, and then click "Extract" (This step may be slighty different, depending on whether you have installed different software to open ZIP files).
  • The individual MP3 or M4B files will be located in a new folder in your Downloads folder.

  • Mac OS X
  • Using Finder, browse to your Downloads folder location where you saved the ZIP file.
  • Double click on the file, and it will automatically extract the individual MP3 or M4B files to a new folder in your Downloads folder.
