Questions About Our Digital Downloads
- What is a digital download?
A digital download is a music or video file that is sold over the internet and delivered directly to the customer’s computer. Depending on the product, MarkKnopfler.com offers digital downloads as MP3s, FLACs or Apple Lossless and all of files are Digital Rights Management (DRM)-free. This allows customers to use their digital downloads on multiple devices and without any restrictions.
- How do I buy a digital download?

The first is your confirmation receipt while the second will include a link to your digital download. To help these emails reach your inbox, add store@MarkKnopfler.com to your email program’s address book. If you do not see these emails in your inbox, please check your email program’s junk/spam folder as it’s possible that they may be misdirected there.
- Will my digital download work in iTunes and/or on my iPod?
Yes, it will. MP3 and Apple Lossless files will work immediately, but FLAC files will need to be converted to work in iTunes.
- What and how many devices can I use my digital download on?
MarkKnopfler.com downloads are free of Digital Rights Management restrictions. Once downloaded, you may play it on as many devices as you have. You are also allowed to download your purchase three times, so if you’d like to have the digital download on other computers simply use the exact same link you used the first time to download your file again.
- What is the difference between the downloadable formats? What is FLAC?
The primary differences are size, quality and ease-of-use. MP3s are the most standard form for audio files and the size of their files dictates the quality. A 128 kbps file is smaller in size than a 256 kbps one, and lower in quality due to compression of the file.FLAC is a lossless format, meaning it will sound as good as any CD. FLAC files do require a plug-in for them to play on your computer and because of that, aren’t as easy to use as an MP3 file.Apple Lossless is also a lossless format however, unlike a FLAC file, any Apple Lossless file can easily be played on iTunes and on other Apple products.
- I downloaded my file but now can’t find it on my computer. What should I do?
Start by using your computer’s search fuction to search for “Mark” and specify if you are looking for an audio or a video file. If neccessary, narrow the search by using the item’s name.If the search function doesn’t turn anything up, try clicking on the link again. You can download all of our files up to three times so try downloading it to a specific location, such as your desktop or music folder.
- I didn’t get the email with my digital download link. What do I do?

- I downloaded my purchase and it doesn’t work. What do I do?
If you have downloaded your file and it is not working or the quality of your file is not what you expected, please email us at store@MarkKnopfler.com and we will help you.
- Is it possible to make changes to my order after I’ve placed it?
If you wish to make changes to your order, please email store@MarkKnopfler.com ASAP. Since we process orders soon after they are placed in order to ship them to you as fast as possible, there is a very short window in which the orders can be modified.Please note that requested order changes will be made at the discretion of MarkKnopfler.com. During certain periods we may not be able to make any changes in time due to the volume and nature of orders. Because of that, please ensure the accuracy and completeness of your order before submitting it.
- Why do I see multiple charges on my credit card?
When you make any purchase online, a pre-authorization check is done with your credit card company to ensure that your card is valid and has sufficient funds to complete the transaction. This pre-authorization puts a hold on the funds required for the order you are placing. Once your order has been processed, your card is charged one time only.If you experience difficulties ordering, and make several attempts to place your order, on occasion it is possible for a credit card company to pre-authorize your card multiple times, putting multiple holds on your card. Possible reasons for the transaction declining is that the billing address you entered in the ordering process does not match up exactly with the address the credit card company has on file, or there may be a typo in the expiry date or card verification number. To check that you are entering in the correct address, please review a previous credit card statement. Sometimes even one incorrect character can cause this problem.The attempts you made for your purchase are pre-authorized, so your funds are currently on hold with your bank and not with MarkKnopfler.com. These holds will clear within three-five business days. It may be possible for us to help you get them cleared faster. Please contact store@MarkKnopfler.com and we will assist you as best we can.
- I didn’t receive my order. What happened to it?
A shipment may have been returned to us as undelivered due to:Incorrect Address
If the address provided during the order process is incorrect or outdated, the shipment is typically returned to us by the carrier or unintended recipient. If the package is returned to us we will contact you to refund the amount of the product, excluding the shipping charges, or reship your order.Failed Delivery Attempt
Most carriers make up to three attempts to deliver a package. If the driver feels it is unsafe to leave a package they will take it to a local post office or carrier’s outlet for pickup and leave a delivery notice. You must act upon this notice before the package is declared undeliverable (timeframe varies from carrier to carrier and is outlined on the delivery notice).
Refusal by Recipient
If a recipient is not expecting a shipment, they may refuse the package if they believe it was sent to them in error. In the event that you are sending a package to a recipient other than yourself, let the recipient know that a shipment is due.
When we receive a returned package that is marked as undeliverable, we issue a full refund (excluding the shipping charges). We are unable to reship orders that are returned to us as undeliverable. If you would like to purchase items that were undeliverable, you will need to place a new order.
