I think that everyone has their own way of downloading. I found that the
following steps work for me.
1. after downloading the zipped Digital Talking Book file from
Https://nlsbard.loc.gov to my computer (I save it in a folder called DTB), I
go into Windows Explorer, arrow down to drive C, click on it and arrow to
the DTB folder where I've saved the zipped file. If you have several books
saved in that main folder, you keep hitting the letter D till you reach the
desired book. highlight it and hit the applications key.
2. Then, I arrow down to "extract all" and hit "enter". Then follow the
prompts to unzip the file and save the individual files, which are put into
a subfolder under the main name of the book.
3. I plug the thumb drive into the computer, then I highlight and save the
folder with the title and author of the desired book, which also saves the
subfolder of individual files. I save them to the thumb drive. When I
remove the thumb drive from my computer and plug it into my Library player,
it plays the book. Interesting enough, I can save several books on that one
thumb drive, following the previous steps. To cycle through the books on
the drive, just hold down the large play key till you hear the "Book Shelf"
and listing of titles. Hit either the right or left arrow keys to cycle
through the various titles.
Hope this helps. Sorry if I left out any important steps.
