    ...how?! I'm pretty sure I've got the right programme for it but I just don't know how to get a set playing that's been downloading in 'zip.' instead of another format. Any help? Cheers.

    I've used winrar and I have a desktop pc. I've never unzipped anything without winrar so I wouldn't be able to say that's correct for the above post.

    If they're .zip (which I've never seen when downloading) then your comp can do that.

    But if it's .rar, which it mostly is, you need winrar

    Yeah just download winrar, install it, then when you have an archive just right click and do "extract to". Choose a destination then open it from there.
