If you are having problems with Real Media files, use the AVI formats instead. If AVI files do not play, you need to install software on your computer to read this common format, such as Windows Media Player by Microsoft.

RealAudio, no waiting! Must have latest version of the RealAudio player installed, free of charge by visiting www.real.com. (Find the free software, no need to pay for the deluxe.) Alternately, most all computers will play the WAV format files, but it may take a few minutes to download them first. The messages on cassette tapes can be listened to free here.
