Convert .ZIP to an .MP3.

You don't need to buy a converter to convert a .zip to an .mp3 file. Groups of MP3 files often come in a ZIP file for easier download. The ZIP file contains files that have been compressed to reduce the size of the files. It is a folder that downloads to your computer, which you can then unzip and use the files inside. MP3 files are audio files that often take up a lot of space. Downloading a ZIP file filled with MP3s is a fast way of receiving all the data on your computer.


Step 1

Download the zip file to your computer. Save it in a specific area that you'll remember.
