I received this note in the Thank a Reader email:

Hi Pam - just to say the audio files for “Hildebrand” are corrupted - I’m on Chapter 10 and there hasn’t been one chapter yet that hasn’t cut off prematurely.

I usually download the Zip file and convert the files to bookmarkable files using a file converter - but found many of the files couldn’t be read due to corruption ……well, never mind, so I thought I would try the iTunes podcasts - and these are all cutting off early. Maybe you could ask the guy who converts the originals audio recordings to mp3 files to re-convert and upload another set ?

I noticed that there have been more than 1500 downloads, and there were no other error reports.

You could suggest he used the M4Bs we make. Usually, truncated files are internet problems, but not always. There isn't a man making mp3 files :D

I didn't want to tell him that the "man making the mp3s" was me. That would be awkward! Thanks Anne!

The "man making the MP3s" are the readers. ;)

Section 7 ends normally for me when I play it online. It's probably a download or MP3 player issue.

I've just this minute finished listening to the m4B - which was made from the 64kb zip file, and every chapter ended normally.

I received another email for an error in this project.

I am currently listening to "Hildebrand and His Times." I actually
downloaded into my iTunes when it was first posted, but noticed that one
of the sections would not stream or download. I sent a message several
times but I think they got lost in the holiday activity. It is Section
8, Chapter 5 Part 2.

I went to the catalog page, and section 8 does not play on that page, but the section plays on the archive page. I looked on the project page, and the link looks different than it normally should. The _128kb is _128kb1. Would that be the problem? I tried to take that stray 1 out but the link still does not play.

It will play from the catalog page now; I edited the links.
