Converting zip files to mp3


thumbscrew

I've got Switch Sound File Converter installed and some zip files in my downloads. Can anyone talk me through using Switch to convert to mp3 please? I've tried a few times, unsuccessfully.

First double click a Zip to Unzip it, before you can do anything with it

Thanks Lazarus and woodchip. I've actually done this before a couple of times successfully,however there's some sort of a glitch this time. The Extraction File Wizard appears, but when I click next a box appears saying.."File slipped unknown compression method".

The password for a protected, compressed (zip) file is not recoverable. If you lose the password, you will be unable to access that file.

I suggest you go back to where you got link to download them from and make a note of the password for the files.
