    No. Unfortunately there are certain restrictions placed on mobile devices which limit access to the files. You can purchase items on your mobile device and download them at a later time on your computer by using the link in the email sent to you by SongLibrary.
    Mac users: Once the files are on your computer you can add them to iTunes and then sync your iPad or iPhone to iTunes.
    Windows/Android users: Connect your mobile device via USB to your computer. Locate the downloaded files on your computer and transfer the mp3 files to the music folder on your mobile device. This is usually a simple drag-and-drop operation.

    The checkout system is completely automated. Once you pay you will receive a link to download your files. When you select this link the files are automatically sent to your computer. The files will be located wherever downloads from the internet usually go. This may be the desktop or a downloads folder. If you think the download hasn't worked or you can't find the files please check these places or perform a search of your computer using the name of the song file.
  • I’ve received my files. How do I open them?
    Most of our files are compressed in .zip format. In order to open these you need the Free Stuffit Expander. Your computer probably already has this installed. If not it can be downloaded here:
