Downloading

How do I unzip my download?

All Brick by Brick Audiobooks are delivered for download in a compressed format called zip. Some audiobooks are fairly large in size so they will also be split into multiple zip files, making it easier to download and preventing loss of data from failed downloads. To access the audio files inside the zip files, you will need to decompress (unzip) the zip files.

If you're on a Mac then it's easy - double click the file and you're done.

If you're on a Windows PC right-click the file and choose "Extract All" - you're done. If you don't see the "Extract All" menu option then try double clicking the zip file - if a new window pops up containing the audio files then you're in business - just press Ctrl+A to select all the files, then drag them into a folder or onto your desktop. If none of the above works for you then it looks like you don't have unzipping software installed on your system, so you will need to download an application to do so - 7-zip is a popular free option.

I get an error when unzipping or I am asked for a password when unzipping.

Problems with unzipping are almost always because of an incomplete download, which is usually due to a problem or interruption with your internet connection. The solution is to try downloading the file again. Note that if the audiobook comes in multiple parts, you will only need to re-download the part that you are having troubles with, not all of them.
