CD Download

Downloading Zipped mp3's

This page contains a walk-through of a typical download after purchase of the Download CD item. Although this is somewhat comprehensive, user experience may vary from examples shown as each user may have their own operating system, internet browser, directory structure, uncompression tools and mp3 players. The examples below are target specifically for Windows XP and Windows Vista users. Other operating systems and tools are not covered here, but the steps are overall the same.


Follow the menus on our web site or go to our shopping cart and select a CD Download, by adding it to your cart. Once added to your cart you must select the cart, which is done by clicking View Cart.

If you have not previously purchased from, you will need to create an account, based on your email address. This step is critical as your email address is what will identify you and where your purchase will be sent should you choose CD Download, so be sure you have entered your correct email address.

Once you have created your account, you should already be logged in, and able to go view your cart. From here you will go through each screen to finalize your purchase, including entering your method of payment.

When your transaction is complete, you will receive 2 emails. 1 will be the receipt of your purchase, and another will contain the download link for your CD download. This will only be good for 3 days from the time of purchase. There is also a limit on how many times the download may be performed allowing you multiple tries should your download fail due to a connectivity issue.


After purchasing a CD Download from, you will receive an email with the URL, or link of the CD download that you purchased. It should resemble the email below, but be specific to you.

To begin the download, click on the link below "DOWNLOAD LINK:", depending on your browser, you may be presented with an option to open or save or it may save for you. If you are presented with Open or Save, choose Save.  The location that your browser saves to will depend on your browser and operating system. Some browsers, depending on their configuration, may ask you where to save it, if so, choose Desktop.

Windows XP and Internet Explorer Download:

Windows Vista and Internet Explorer download:

Typically for Windows XP and Internet Explorer, the web browser will download the file to your personal directory on the default disk drive, typically C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Desktop, but it some cases it will save to a C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsername\Downloads directory.

Typically for Windows Vista and Internet Explorer, the web browser will download the file to your personal directory on the default disk drive, but specifically to a Downloads directory, typically C:\Users\YourUserName\Downloads or C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\Downloads.

With both operating systems and the possibility that you may be using Firefox, Chrome, Safari or many other browsers, there are too many possibilities to cover, but typically the directories presented above or your desktop will contain the download. For instance Chrome automatically download directly to your personal Desktop or Downloads folder without asking, and FireFox may or may not ask where to put the downloaded file depending on the version you are running and how Firefox is configured.

The size of the download exceeds 272 Megabytes, so on DSL/Cable connections, this may take 4-50 minutes to download depending on your connectivity speed. Dial-up speeds could be too slow to perform a continuous backup of this size, so we don't recommend purchasing the CD Download if you are using Dial-up internet connectivity, we suggest purchasing the CD set and having it shipped to you.


Unzipping the download

Once you have successfully downloaded the file, you may unzip it, creating a new directory containing all of the mp3's. In this case the zip file is a compressed file that contains all of the other files in mp3 format that make up the CellectBudwig informational CD's.

To unzip the file, if you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, the ability to unzip, or uncompress, is built into the operating system. If you are using a different operating system or older version of Windows, the functionality to open zip files may or may not be built in, so you may have to go download one of many different programs to allow you to unzip the file. You can find out more by going to Tech Pro - How To: Open a Zip file or to Zip or Unzip a File.

Windows XP:

To open the zip file and uncompress it in Windows XP, place the mouse cursor over the file and right-click, then choose the menu option Extract All.

Next it will ask you where you would like to place the extracted files, giving you a typical directory of "C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Desktop\CellectBudwig". We suggest that as it will make it easy to find and work with. Windows XP will automatically create the directory for you once you click 'Next'. It will begin uncompressing and placing the files into a directory on your desktop called 'CellectBudwig', this may take several minutes.

Playing mp3s

Once the zip file has been unzipped, depending on your operating system, you should open the directory where you stored the extracted files, typically on your desktop in a folder called 'CellectBudwig'. Once this is opened, you can see it has 1 file and 5 subdirectories. To start your mp3 player, or media player, simply click on the play list, which is the file named 'Michael Vrentas - CellectBudwig Playlist'. This should then automatically start your mp3 or media player allowing you listen to the entire volume in order.

Mac OS X Unzipping:

For Mac OS X, after downloading, the file should be located in your home folder under Downloads. If you cannot find it, go to Finder to locate the file. From there you may double-click or open the file, which will unzip the file and create a new folder CellectBudwig in the Downloads folder.

Select Play List by Double-clicking:

If you wish, you may go into each directory, labeled CD1, CD2, etc. by double-clicking them and find the playlist file named appropriately for the disc - 'Michael Vrentas - Cellect Budwig Protocol - Disc1'.

Select individual CD Lists for Play:

Specific CD Playlist


For iTunes, you must first unzip the folder, then open iTunes and go to "File, Add to Library" or "Command-O". This will open a "Add to Library" window. Navigate to the CellectBudwig folder (you may need to use Finder to find the folder in your home Downloads folder), then go into CD1 directory and select the .mp3 files and press enter. iTunes will then import and process the files for the first CD. You must then do the same for each CD, starting with CD2 directory. Once you have repeated this for all CD directories, you can search for 'Michael Vrentas', or 'Cellect' to find the CD's and play them.


From this point your mp3 player or media player should start up and begin playing from the first entry. In Windows by default the Windows Media Player should begin playback of the entire Cellect Budwig Protocol.
