Before uploading your files, you
should Zip them up into a single Zip file. By doing that, you have several
benefits: First of all, the total number of Bytes being uploaded will be smaller and therefore save
on uploading time . Secondly, you only need to upload a single file instead of
uploading several files one by one, and thirdly, if you password protect it (
you have to Email us the password ), you can avoid someone else
accessing your files.
Following are several ways to upload
your files, choose one which work best for you.
- Uploading your files via anonymous FTP , Click this
to open the ftp window and drag your files into the ftp window ( You can
select multiple files at the same time from your file browser and then drag
them over ). If this
doesn't work for your operation system, please use a FTP program with the following FTP
Host name: lightsound.com
User ID : anonymous
Password: ( leave blank )
Initial remote directory: ( leave blank )
If you don't have a FTP program, follow this link
for a free one
. Download the free software from there which matches your operation
system ( PC or MAC ), Install and run the software. Fill in Host name and user
ID mentioned above and hit the "Quickconnect" Button . Locate your file in the left window and drag over the
right window ( If you download the zip file, you don't even need to install
the software. Simply unzip the folder and double click on filezilla.exe )
( This is a totally free software, but it is also one of the best FTP
software out there: very fast and with a thoughtful interface )
- You may upload your files to our server using
this upload tool
. A popup window will be launched , click the "Browse" button to
locate your file on your computer and then click the "upload" button.
This upload tool is relatively slow and sometimes the transfer process is
terminated before completion. So make sure the message " File uploaded
successfully " appears before assuming that the file is completely uploaded.
Also, If our server has the file ( with the same name, complete or partial
file ) , and you try to upload the second time, It will not function
correctly. In this case , you need to change the file name before uploading
- You can upload your files onto a third party server
and we download them from there. Follow this link
and fill firstname.lastname@example.org
in the "Recipient's Email" box, your Email address in the "Your
Email" box. Hit the "Browse"
button to locate the file on your computer, check the " I have read .... "
box, and then hit the "Upload file" Button to
upload your file there. They will Email us a link to download the file.
- If none of the method mentioned above works out for
us the file if it is less than 2 MB, or send us ( Light Sound, 1434
Greenwood Dr, Piscataway, NJ 08854 ) a CD with the files on it if it is more than 2 MB.
