Why is my download not showing up as a zip file?

It may be possible that your account is set to download a different file format. To change the download format of files, please do the following:

  1. Log in to your Bookshare account.
  2. Select the My Account link.
  3. Select the Preferences link.

Under the Preferences screen you will see the following choices under Download Preferences:

DAISY File Extension Type.

If the setting is set to .zip, your preference is set to download books as a Daisy zip file.

This is the most common file format used. Users who wish to download a Daisy file will need to unzip the file to read the books.
