Importing a mentalcase file from a PC to a Ipod Touch

A classmate recently made some great notes using mental case, he has distributed them in a .zip file, and they are *.mentalcase files. I downloaded the class edition Mental Case app on my ipod and I have tried several ways to get these to work on my ipod touch now from my PC. They import, but nothing ever is added to my case files. What am I missing? Thanks.

    Hi Scott,
    Actually, Mental Case has two types of archives: mental case archives, and study archives. The Mac app works with both, but the iOS apps only read in study archives. So if you can, I recommend you get your friend to export in study archive format, which is a type of zip archive, and import that.
