Downloaded File Unknown format

Post by match69 » Wed Dec 12, 2012 2:53 pm

Hi to all. I am having difficulty downloading files. Either I click on the file to download and get taken back to my account page or I download a 5kb Zip file that fails because it is of 'Unknown Format or Damaged'. The files I tried to download were ch46stealth.zip and piash21c.zip. Tried with both Firefox and IE. I am a premium member. Any help would be appreciated.

I have checked out both files, and both seem to be corrupt, sorry to be bearer of bad news.

Thanks for that Mel but it seems that any file I try to download gives the same result; The FSX Cessna C208B, and il 62 cubana amongst other attempted dls. The 5kb file that is dowloaded is readable in notepad and appears to be the downloader for the requested file which when being unzipped brings up the error about 'unknown format'. Thanks for help so far.

I know, I will be making contact with Admin and try to establish if it's a problem our end, or a bad batch of files being uploaded by slap dash authors.
