I am new to this and am attempting to sync songs from my Mac to an android tablet. Android can't seem to unzip the files and gee, why were the zipped to begin with?

That isnt Dropbox - Dropbox doesnt alter ANY files at all UNLESS you are using the website viewer on your Android and attempting to download multiple files at once - which causes them to be combined to one zip file to download (as most other download services do).
