The screenshot below shows a flashdrive (UDISK) in the Mac "Finder" window. It holds three books; the first one, with the blue folder icon, is a previously unzipped book, while the next two, with white file icons, are still zipped.
Once unzipped, the directory will look like this:
In the screenshot above, the directory shows both the zipped and unzipped files, including files for the book Lost Horizon, by James Hilton:
This screenshot shows the "Archive Utility" window open while a digital book (The Bill Slider Omnibus, by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles) downloads.
The bar to the left of the "Cancel" button indicates the progress of the download.
The Finder is the program that manages files, applications, network connections, and devices such as flash drives or cartridges for talking books. (It is similar to Windows Explorer on a PC.) The Finder is always on when your computer is running, though it may be in the background if you’re using another program. The screenshot below has the Finder icon highlighted. It is always the first icon in the dock or tray at the bottom of the screen.
The digital talking book player has a USB port on the side for digital books that have been downloaded (via BARD) to a flash drive. The port, which has a removable black plastic cover, is on the right side, next to the audio jack.
Blank digital cartridges, inserted into the front of the player, are also available from several vendors for use with BARD.
