Do I need a special player to download the MP3?

No, the MP3 can be downloaded through your browser on any PC-based audio player. The MP3’s can also be listened to on devices using the Safari browser.

Smart Phone/Tablet Users:

No, the MP3 will download directly to your mobile device.  To listen to the message, you will need to access the email containing the link and click the download button.

 

Can I play the MP3’s on my Smartphone?  [UTDATED 8/21/2012]

Yes, MP3’s can be played on smart phones and mobile devices, however to download (save) the message to a mobile device,  it must be opened on a Mac or PC, saved the file locally on machine using itunes or other media software and then synced with your mobile device.

Can I download more than one message at a time?

No. Downloading through your web browser requires you to download one message at a time. You must wait until each MP3 file is downloaded completely to your computer before clicking the link to download another message. Downloading multiple messages simultaneously can cause the original download the stop.

Should I save or open the MP3 file?

You should “Save” your MP3 file to your hard drive.  Choosing "Open" will start your default media player, but will not save the file to your computer.

Note: If you chose "Open" when prompted by your Web browser while downloading an MP3 file, the file was not saved to your computer and may no longer be available for download. Email us at tdjakesdigitalproducts@pbd.com for help with this issue.

Smart phone/Tablet Users

Your particular device may not allow you to save the mp3 file.  To access your message indefinitely, please save the message to your PC or Mac computer and transfer to the file to your phone or mobile device for your enjoyment after the initial 72 hour period.

 

Locating your Download

The Digital Access portal lets you download files directly to your desktop or to a specific music folder and will import those files into either iTunes or Windows Media Player.

Locating files on your computer

When you save music to your computer, it's stored in the "My Music" folder in Windows or the "Music" folder on a Mac. We recommend using the default folder, but you can change this setting if you wish.

 

Importing into iTunes or Windows Media Player

If you have iTunes or Windows Media Player installed on your computer, the message will automatically launch the application designated as the default media player and import your content into your music library. If neither application is installed, file will save your MP3 downloads to your default Download Folder.

 

Trouble Playing Message

Trouble Playing Message
Here are a few things to consider if you are having trouble playing your music:

  • Does your computer satisfy the minimum system requirements?
  • Do you have a Media Player installed on your computer?
  • Do you have iTunes? Our files also play in iTunes
    • Windows 7, Windows Vista and XP
      Your files will be added to the playlist in your iTunes
    • Macintosh and Linux
      Select "File"..."Add folder to Library"
