Very hard to understand explanations

I'm sorry but it's very hard to follow the explanations.

In this lesson, you basically mean:

des autres = the other(s) - specific ones, whenever "de" would be in front

d'autres = other(s) - unspecific, generic

des autres -- of the others (specific group of "others")
d'autres -- of others (unspecific "others")

Ècoutons les idées des autres. -- Let's listen to the ideas of the others (e.g., in  the meeting).
Je veux lire des livres d'autres auteurs. -- I want to read some books of other authors.
