Problem with download? [SOLVED]

Post by meldayi on Wed 14 Mar 2012, 11:56

So I recently found this website and I was like, cool, free sims. Spent 6 hours downloading Pets and Generations, only to find that when I try and extract the files, it doesn't work? Says there is no archives or something. Makes me kinda irritated because we don't have a huge download limit per month. Please tell me how to fix this.

I was using WinRar, then I tried BitZipper.

Hello,

You should use winRAR.
Please check back later for Admin's reply.

Hello,

I see. Thank you for the screenshot.
This error is usually caused by an error during the download process. Are you sure the download finished 100% in your Bittorrent client? Also, try closing your Bittorrent client during the extraction.
It could also be caused by, for example, a power failure during the download process.

Either way, the .rar file seems corrupted and the only way to fix this, is by removing the .rar file and re-downloading it, I'm afraid.

Hello,

With "Bittorrent Client" I mean any program you use to download .torrent files.
I'd recommend uTorrent (www.utorrent.com), yes.

Hello,

Don't worry, I think Miro is a Bittorrent Client too.
Anyhow, please let us know the final result and good luck!
