    Then click OK
    The Chandos Download Manager will appear with your files shown within. IF THE DOWNLOAD MANAGER DOES NOT APPEAR, IT HAS NOT BEEN INSTALLED.

The new download manager should automatically open with your tracks listed. After selecting the folder that you wish to download your tracks into, your tracks should start to download. An indicator on the right of each track will show you the progress of each download. When all of your tracks have finished downloading, you can find your tracks by clicking on the button marked 'Open' at the bottom of the downloader.

Downloading tracks to iPads and iPhones

Ipads and Iphones are designed to use there own software and structures. There is not a user filesystem.
Therefore the only way of getting music other than iTunes onto an iPad is to use third party software to store the files, such as iCloud or DropBox.
You can get a DropBox account for free.
It registers in the OS, and when you download files, you can transfer them from Safari and other apps into DropBox. From there you can playback.
When you select the track that you want from a website in Safari, click on a symbol that looks like a square box with an up facing arrow through it at the top of the browser. In here Select download to DropBox.
You will be asked to set up or select a folder to put the file in.
Once downloaded you can play from the DropBox account.
Unfortunately this will not play in the iPad's own music and video player.

Chandos Records reserves the right to make improvements to the Download Manager and the download pages at anytime without notice.
