I doubt it's actually corrupted Most likely, it just doesn't find the "end signature" by the 2G mark, and gives up.
Unfortunately, despite a careful reading of zip, unzip, gzip, and funzip man pages, I cannot find a solution to this. Perhaps some of the alternative zip programs on freshmeat.net might be of some help.
Remove zip and unzip. Download the source for zip and unzip. Then add -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 to the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS to the ./configure command. Also do not forget to include largefile option if there is one.
FAT32 has a file size limit of 4 GB, but for safety sake keep files under a gigabyte.
I know program removed able recover zip files(archives), restore ZIP files from damaged media (floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, Zip drives, etc.), fix the Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive in ZIP archive error.

zlatan24, do you realise you have resurrected a 2 year old, resolved thread? And there's a whiff of some spam here too, given your post history. Reported to a mod.
