Are you on windows? The sound library download works on linux and macosx.

...I need to write a FAQ about that... :-/

Hi,

the problem is that we don't have an active windows-developer. AFAIK, the windows port is not supported anymore.

To be able to use new kits go onto the sourceforge kits page and download the kit that you want to use. then download and install winrar http://www.win-rar.com/ then open the kit with it. you should then see a file, click the file and then click "view" at the top of the window. this will then show you the folder that contains the audio files and .xml files. Extract this folder to your drumkit directory, usually c:\Program Files\Hydrogen\data\drumkits. then fire up Hydrogen and your new drumkit should be in the drumkit loader. Enjoy!! :-)

Or use the brand new windows installer for hydrogen 0.9.5 , it's available on sourceforge :) 0.9.5 is able to work correctly with all hydrogen drumkits..
