If you are buying your music on an iPhone, know that you cannot download your music directly to your iPhone. You will be able to listen to the music from your Zero Universal account by clicking on the PLAY button. We suggest downloading your music onto your home computer (MAC or PC). Then you will be able to add it to iTunes. It will then be available for synchronization with your iPhone.
You also have the option to download a free app that allows you to download files on your iPhone, such as iDownloads. Go in your App Store and search for iDownloads to install it on your phone.
To UNZIP (or decompress) your music file:
MAC: You simply have to double click on the ZIP file and it will open up in a folder where you will see all the content.
WINDOWS: To open a zipped file on a PC, drag the .zip attachment to the desktop. Once the file is on the desktop, you can double- or right-click to open it. Double-click the zipped file to see its contents. It might happen that when the album is zipped, the album name is put between brackets. If this happens, you will have to remove the brackets in order to be able to unzip your file. Example: 'Album Name.zip' must become Album Name.zip
If you ordered a physical CD, you also have access to your music in a downloadable format. Just go to your account, as described in the previous step to instantaneously enjoy your music. In the meantime, your CD will be shipped to you shortly.
