Help with Downloads
When you get to the Download page you will see
several buttons to Download the products - that's a
gray button that is yellow on the left end, and the word
"download" in blue.
When you click the button to download the media
files, you should get a box that asks you if you want to
open it or save it. Select Save and specify a folder on
your hard drive. After you have downloaded it, you
can open it.
iDevice: Apple doesn’t allow direct downloads to its
iPad or iPhone except from the iTunes store. You can
download our files to a computer (not a mobile
device) and then transfer them to into iTunes on your
mobile device. There are some apps that will allow
you to download to your iDevice hard drive and then
you can synchronize them with your iTunes. The most
popular seems to be Goodreader. You can check it
out and see if you like it. If you know of a better
option, please help other iDevice owners by letting us
know and we will post it here. Thank you.
Some people have tried to open the audio files with
a media player, and it doesn't work. If that happens to
you, then first download the file to your hard drive and
then open your media player.
When you click on the Download button, you should
get a box that gives you a choice to either "Open with"
or "Save to Disk." Under that is a box you can check
to "Do this automatically..." from now on.
If you don't see that box when you click on the
Download link, then perhaps some has clicked that at
some time in the past so that your computer always
tries to open the file.
It won't work that way. You have to download the
files to your hard drive.
Here are 3 suggestions:
Change your setting so that you have the option
to Download the file to your hard drive. DO NOT use a
media player for this... just download it. Unfortunately,
Internet Explorer makes this difficult to do, and each
version of IE handles it differently. To make matters
worse, even the same version of IE is different
depending on which operating system you are using
(there are different instructions if you have the Vista
OS for instance). The Firefox browser is much easier:
just go to the Tools menu, select Options, and on the
first tab there you will see where you can specify what
If you are using a PC, then you can Right-Click
and Save Target As... That might give you the option
to Save to your hard drive.
A few years ago we found another great option, a
program called Internet Download Manager (IDM). It
will download just about anything, it will download
multiple files simultaneously or you can que them up
and it will download them one after the other. You can
also resume a download if it is interrupted, rather than
having to start over. It was easy to install, simple to
use, and we haven't had any problems with it. They
have been sending us free updates every few months
ever since we bought it. You can download a copy
and use it for 30 days for free, then pay $25 (as of this
writing) if you want to keep it. You can download the
free trial from this web page
Sometimes the files have the extension .zip, even
though they are not compressed. If this happens,
please rename them with the correct extension when
you download them: .rm for Real Media, .mp3 for mp3
audio, and .pdf for eBooks. We are knowledge-able in
the human brain and the human mind, not the
internet, so please forgive us for any small glitches.
We depend on several excellent suppliers to help us,
and sometimes it takes a while to get everything
mp3 audio recordings
You should be able to play mp3 audio recordings on
any media player on your computer. If you have a CD
recorder, you can also burn them to CD as Data files,
and play them on most moder CD and DVD players
that will recognize mp3 files. You can also transfer
them to your mp3 player, usually via a USB or
Media players for the Real Media (and
You can use the current version of the Real Audio
player to listen to the Real Audio programs. You can
get it from www.real.com
You can also play the Real Media audio and video -
and just about every other format on the internet -
with the VLC Media Player. You can download it for
free from the videolan.org web site.

We have combined the files in our Home Study
Courses into compressed "ZIP files" with the
complete home study course. You can extract the files
with a program like 7-Zip from 7-Zip.org.
If you prefer to download the files individually, you
can use the other links. If your computer times out
and stops before the download is complete, then go
ahead and download the individual files.
The Free Bonus items are not included in the Zip
files, you just scroll down to them, after the mp3
Free Bonus Downloads
Remember when you order CDs and DVDs you are
entitled to free bonus downloads so you can get

seconds are so - or if you are impatient, there is a link

Downloading Acrobat Documents
Here is some information from the man who created
the Download Guard program that we use:
Some people seem to be having a bit of problem
downloading PDF documents from the CBDM
download screen, so I'll cover it here:
When you left-click on a PDF document in your
browser window, Acrobat sees that you're clicking a
PDF, and will intercept that click, and try and open the
file in your browser window.
Because of the security that CBDM imposes so that
no one can find out the real URL of the download, this
You'll notice that right-clicking on the download link
does work however.
This is not a problem with CBDM/DLGuard, and
cannot be worked around as it is because of the way
Acrobat interacts with your browser.
As always, if you have problems, contact us and
we'll be happy to help.
