Simple to use and convenient... Each DVD contains several folders labeled by state or territory name. Within each state folder there are multiple zip archives named by county. There is one zip archive for each county in a given state.Each file is clearly named using the county or area name followed by the 5-digit county code number and the .zip extension.
