[BCAB] RNIB Talking Book on CD

as per my previous email, the files have downloaded but not in sequence order. eventually I managed to find chapter 1 but this is totally unsatisfactory when it comes to me looking for chapter 2. is it not possible that voice dream reader can read the complete book rather than separate files? another interesting thing is that while the files on my Mac book air in the loader are labelled correctly but the ones on the voice dream reader have totally different labelling.

The type of power supply for this machine came into parts the plug part and I presume the other part which might be called an adapter! Excuse my lack of knowledge.
