    What format are these files that you are downloading? You are not trying to
    play the zip file are you?

    MP3 is a compressed format. Storing them in a .zip file will save only a
    few percent of space as compared to storing them in a normal folder. The
    CRC checksum of the zip file contents is nice to validate the data, but
    DVDSig can quickly produce checksum files that it can also use to validate
    the data.

    ==========================================
    What format are the files in when you download them?
    Maybe all you need to do is unzip the files?

    Maybe the following links will offer some ideas:
