our ZIP download files
download files from Pristine Classical you will either receive a single
MP3 file, or a compressed ZIP archive. ZIP files allow us to offer you a group
of files bundled together in a single download, as well as saving download
time and file space.
ZIP compression is lossless - the files within the ZIP can be un-Zipped
back to their exact original state.
our ZIP files will contain the following:
files - a series of tracks which make up the recording
playlist files - for computer media players
will have no difficulty handling ZIP archives - support is built into
Windows, for example. To extract the files from a ZIP archive,
simply right-click on the downloaded file in My Computer or Explorer and
select 'Extract all...' and follow the instructions. Mac OS 10.3 and
later has built into it the ability to open any ZIP file as well as
create it own - to open a ZIP file, double-click on the file.
files were created with one of the most popular ZIP utilities, WinZip,
which we are happy to recommend to PC users should you require greater
flexibility in handling these archives. Mac users may wish to try StuffIt
Expander - there's a free download here, or you can also now get WinZip for Mac.
For technical information and more background notes on ZIP files, there's a good Wikipedia article here.
