Getting problem when untar the .tar.gz file?


I am getting the error when i am doing untar the ".tar.gz" file. The error is shown below like:


[ramakumar@getz xml_work]$ tar zxvf expat-1.95.tar.gz

tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--length error
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Why crc-error and data-length error are comming .what is the reason for this? How i solve this? Plz give solution to solve this problem ?

Thanks & Regard,
