Download complete, zip file extracted with Windows XP Extract All... context menu command, extracted folder contains 25 files. Used Audacity to spot-check chapters 1, 8, 12, 14, 17 and 23 every 3 to 5 minutes, no problems found.

rabableo, I'm sure you had problems, but I haven't been able to duplicate them. What do you mean by "corrupted files"? Did your extraction method give you errors when you extracted the zip file? Or were you trying to play them and run into errors with playback? Any additional information would be helpful.

Thanks!
Paul

No need to be sorry, that's why we have this forum!

Since I was able to download the zip and extract it (apparently) correctly, I think you must have had problems with your download (which is not all that unusual, as Archive has been having server issues). I'd suggest that you download the individual 64kbps files, either from the catalog page, or directly from the Archive.org page. It will save download fime, as the zip file doesn't really economize much on file size, it just bundles together all of the files in one archive.

If you continue to have problems, we wnat to know...it doesn't do either the listener or the reader any good to have a chapter, or an entire book, in the archive that can't be listened to.

Thanks for the report, and I hope you're able to get the necessary files. If you still have problems, post them...I'll get an email and check back.
