Please attempt to troubleshoot on your own, before contacting DFH. Thank you.
Go through the entire downloading process with one of your links. You have four opportunities to download each file (book, CD, DVD). Please only use one to its completion first. Search your computer. Do everything you can (see below) before using up your remaining downloads.
Please note: These downloads are designed to go into a computer. Therefore (for the time being), will not work in a mobile device (phone/iPad) without being connected to the internet, see above for suggestions. However, It is possible to downloaded a Video (M4V file), a Book (PDF file), and a CD (ZIP archive with M4A files in it) into a Droid. It has worked flawlessly for some and they could watch/view/listen to all files. Someone else, on the other hand, did a test with his iPhone. He was able to download the Book (PDF) and open/read it just fine. However, the CD (ZIP) and Video (M4V) did not work. I don’t think we’ll be able to get the CD to work on iPhone since iPhones simply do not support ZIP archives. Thank you for your patience as we continually update and improve.
Mobile Device Update (8/14): We were able to get video downloads to work for i-devices (iPhone, iPad, etc). BUT, the video files do not actually download and save to the device. Each video actually streams live to the device every time the person wants to watch it. This is good and bad- it’s good because then you don’t have to wait for the whole file to download in order to play the video, but it’s bad because each time you want to watch the video, you need to be connected to the Internet and much bandwidth is used to stream the video each time. It is still strongly recommended that you save the files on your desk top computer, then transfer to mobile devices so you can watch any time without having to be connected to the Internet, but at least this is no longer a requirement.
What if it won’t download to my computer? This could mean you may have Internet Explorer, which puts up blocks for downloads. If this is the case, go to Google and download “Google Chrome”. This is a free browser download that will allow you to download successfully.
OR Your computer may have some kind of block in your settings that disallows downloads from the internet. You may need to temporarily disable that until you’ve downloaded the videos. You may want technical help with that from a computer savvy friend.
What if I get an error message that says download interrupted? That means that for even a millisecond your internet connection may have been lost. If this happens, it will stop the download process. If you live out in the country and have a slow internet connection, or there is a major storm, or there is not a good connection, this may occur and it is recommended that you just purchase the hard disc instead.
Where is my download? I can’t find it on my computer. As mentioned above, it is more than likely in your downloads folder. In the Safari browser, there is also a small box with an arrow in it in the top right hand corner of the browser. The most recent downloads are in there as well and you may just double click on it or drag it to your desk top and then open it. You can drag if you have an Apple. If you have other browsers, you may just find it in your downloads folder.
My default browser is Firefox. Will that work? All the DVD's were created in an Apple computer, which seems to be Safari browser friendly. If your downloading is really slow using Firefox, you may want to try using Safari.
It is recommended that you have a good understanding of your computer and the internet before attempting a download. If you are not as familiar with this process, it is recommended that you just purchase the hard disc.
Here are a few pages that contain information on the security bar/popup blocker in Internet Explorer (IE):
