Clod requires computer help (again)

I have just downloaded (legally I might add) the new Radiohead album and it has been downloaded as a zipped file which appears in ""My Documents""-how do I transfer that whole file to Windows Media for the purposes of transferring to CD-my computer sound isnt that great so I would prefer to use my normal hi-fi.

-apologies for non-computer ""savvy"".

I couldnt get it to ""find"" the zip file ,so I have ended up having to open up each track,create a playlist and then burn it (as I believe is the expression)-but it seems to have worked so I can enjoy the happy world that is Radiohead!

Thanks anyhoo!

You needed to unzip or extract the files into a new folder first - zipping compresses them for ease of downloading so they need uncompressing ... me thinks!

Anyway, Enjoy!

I did see the extracting option but I was a bit apprehensive that if I made a mistake I would lose the entire file!

Don't worry you can't loose unzipped bits, only multiply them!!

You end up with a zipped and an unzipped version!
