ZIP files down load corrupted =(
I have been trying to download add-ons for my game. unfortunatly every ZIP file i download will not extract and it wont let me look in file. it says "the compressed (zip) file is invalid or corrupted

What add-ons, for what game? Are there any sort of checksums there? Downloaded with what? Tried to extract with what? Is that what's producing the error message? Have you tried multiple means to download or extract? Do zip files you haven't downloaded (or downloaded from elsewhere) work?

This may help to ask smart questions.

Are you absolutely sure you're getting the right file downloaded? I've had problems before where, due to my adblocking filters or some misconfiguration in the servers, the file I get is actually an .html or .php file or something.

Also, at least if you're using KDE, don't trust Konqueror's "file type" column. It only reads the file's extension. But the file "properties" should give you the real type.

You can also double-check what a file really is by running "file" in a console.
