What is the name of the file, or at least a link here to it so we can check it out.

Bible Support is primarily for users of e-Sword as such the majority of modules are formatted for that software either for Windows or MAC users. 

Make sure you have downloaded modules that are in fact formatted for MySword use and not e-Sword. 

These are the file formats used for and with e-Sword:
 

Apple/Mac file formats:
 
Bible (bbli)
Commentary (cmti)
Dictionary (dcti)
Bible Reading Plan (brpi).
Devotional (devi)
Reference Library (refi)
Topic File (topi)
 
Windows file formats:
 
Bible (bblx)
Commentary (cmtx)
Dictionary (dctx)
Bible Reading Plan (brpx)
Devotional (devx)
Topic (topx)
Harmony File (harx)
Maps/Graphics (mapx)

There are several files that I downloaded from the my sword area of the site. Some of the ones that are not showing up are a couple of the Spurgeon commentaries, Kittos popular cyclopedia, JFB commentary and a few others. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you every one for your help. I found out that in order for mysword to see the files they have to be removed from the folder that is made for them during extraction. The extraction app that I used to unzip the files put them in the proper my sword directory it made individual folders for them inside of the various folders already there ie bible, dictionary etc. When I moved them out of the folders that unzipping them had made my sword was able to load them. Thanks again every one
