The question should have been phrased as followes: I downloaded the following book in Daisy/BRF format: Some title, by Some Author using Kurzweil version x.y (or through Internet explorer). Attempted to open the resulting file: some_title.bks in Kurzweil version x.y with file/open. The operation failed with the following message: Some nasty error message. That's it. With specific info Bookshare support and Kurzweil can look into the problem. Otherwise they can't help. Guido Guido Dante Corona IBM Accessibility Center, Austin Tx.

I always use the DAISY file that way because I don't like exploding BKS files in to multiple files per book, which can make a mess of a folder and is far more annoying to look through for the file with the correct extention. It sounds like there is more of a problem than improper setup although that seems to be part of the problem.

Are you trying to use Kurzweil to open a BKS file that's on your hard drive? If so, that won't work. What happens if you use the Online feature in Kurzweil to retrieve and open the book? Does that work? If you just click or hit Enter on an XML file, Windows will bring up Explorer by default. You'll have to use the Open With Application command from the context menu if you want it to open some other way. Also, the proper way to open a DAISY book in Kurzweil, if the book is unpacked, is to use Kurzweil's Open function to open the file with the .OPF extension. If you want Victor Reader to open the book, you should have the full book, all four files for DAISY, in the same directory, and once you launch Victor, it will pick them up via its Bookshelf function. If you can be specific about how you want to read the books, I can be specific about how to go about doing it. ________________________ Peter M.
