Before you can add the music to your library and listen to it, you'll need to decompress, or "unzip" it. Doing so is very easy:
If you're on a Mac, double-click the file. You're done.
If you're on a PC, right-click the file and choose Extract All... You're also done. Don't see an "Extract All..." option? Try renaming the file to something simple, like "music.zip". The important thing is to make sure the name ends with ".zip". Then right-click it again. You should now see "Extract All..." in the menu. If you stilldon't see an Extract All... option, double-click the file. This will open a window listing the files inside. Press Ctrl+A to select all the files, then drag them into a folder or onto your desktop. This will extract them, for sure.
What!? That doesn't work either? You may be amongst the elite few who simply don't have unzipping software built in to their PC. Easy to rectify: there are some free unzipping programs for windows such as Zipeg, 7-Zip, and PeaZip.
iPhone /iPad users. How do I get it into iTunes ?
If you have a Mac or PC, unzip the file on your computer as above. Then to add music to iTunes, just launch iTunes and choose File > Add To Library.
How do I get it into Windows Media Player?
To add music to Windows Media Player, you can either: a) select the audio files, then right click them and choose "Add to Windows Media Player List", or b) drag and drop the audio files onto the Windows Media Player window (if that doesn't work, try the drag/drop operation again, but make sure the Library tab is active in Windows Media Player first).
