I downloaded a zipped epub file yesterday, but unlike the usual process, i.e. unzipping it, clicking on the file and having Adobe Digital Editions gallop to the scene without even being summoned by name, something quite different occurred.
First I saw that the file was not the normal single entity, but was composed of 15 or 20 separate mini-files, each designated .html_split_001 and .html_split_002 etc. I understand that to accommodate devices with limited capacities very often these days they're dividing up ebook files, but I'm surprised that I'm confronted by Windows declaring to me that it can't open the file, and then, after I authorize Windows to search the web to obtain software that WILL open the file, it reports back that it can't locate anything relevant.
So after spending a significant amount of time trying to find software to open this file and not succeeding, I thought it was time to check in once again with the so-far-infallible geeks to go forum people. I place my problem in your hands, thanking you in advance for any help you can offer [and please be as (step-by-step) explicit as possible in your instructions because I'm only cursorily familiar with these matters].
