Hi Francesca-Following their instructions, I placed three folders into a
directory on my hard drive-Documentary, Extras, and Music.  I also copied
these folders to my external backup drive.  I added the music (all mp3 at
320 kbps) contained in the Music file to my iTunes library, and listen to
the music that way.  The music can be listened to using any mp3 player,
like VLC.  The video file opens like any other video file, and the Extra
file contains a great deal of liner note material in .PDF format.  There
was no special software.  It would be easy enough to make a distribution
copy from the original flash drive; what the legal ramifications of that
are I can't say.  It  is certainly a mass of lovely Bach music.
Fortunately having old ears, 320 kbps works fine for me.  If one or more of
the volumes pleases you, buy them on CD.
