[bksvol-discuss] Re: extracting books from the zipped folder

Hi Chris,

Just a suggestion ... but rather than copying and pasting your zipped files, 
if you're using Windows Xp, , you might try:

 1. Highlight zipped folder name;

 2. Use menu or (alt) key and arrow down to "extract" files. It's a dialog 
box, as you may know; and

 3. Follow the prompts.

HTH

Blessings.

Ah!  I have an update.  Just to see, I tried to extract the files from a
different zipped book I downloaded from Bookshare, and when I entered the
password it worked fine with that one.  Apparently, there is a problem with
the first book I tried to extract.

Just to be sure it wasn't a bad download on my part, I just redownloaded the
book I couldn't extract and I still have the same issue of not being able to
move the files out of the zipped folder.

The book I'm trying to extract is A Slobbering Love Affair by Bernard
Goldberg.  What should I do?  I'm at a dead end.

Hi.  Yup, The password prompt comes up.  I then type in my Bookshare
password, but when I enter on OK, I hear a bonk sound and nothing else
happens.  I can't move the files for some reason.

When I'm in the zipped folder, I do a Control-A to select all, then I hit
Control-C to copy, then I alt-tab into the folder I want to insert the book.
Then I Control-V to paste.  When that prompt comes up, I enter the password
as mentioned but bonk, bonk, bonk.  LOL.  I'm using the same password I log
on to the site with, and it's the same one I used in the past to extract
books before the change.  Any thoughts?

You need to put your password into the prompt.
