If it was generated by a PC with Win Zip Stuffit will open it if it is not of an Obscure format that was generated buy a PC Program.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 4, 2007 11:31 AM (in response to Donald Morgan)I have exactly the same problem with a large file 2GB+ that I archived with OSX and I get the same error message when I try to unarchive it. It's really strange because I have already tried opening the zip file before trashing the original about a week ago and it worked! I haven't really made any changes to the system or added anything since then. I also tried using the latest version of Stuffit as suggested but I still couldn't open the file. Any tips or other ideas as to what might be causing this?Powerbook G4 17" 1GHz, 2 GB, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 11, 2007 9:08 AM (in response to dott)I have the same problem than dot. Never could expand it after deleting the original (also archive trough OS X built in compressor). I finished deleting the zip file, could not make it work and became desperate.iBook G4 12, 1.33 GHz, 60 GB HD, 1 GB RAM, BT, Zire 72, 2 iPods Mini, Mac OS X (10.4.8), .
