    just tried a download from Geoff's server and get,
    "This archive is either in an unknown format or damaged" when i try to unzip. Haven't tried Irazmus yet as it's during school hours.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    I started a download from Irazmus' server at about 8:15 cos I thought that internet wouldn't be in major use until about 9. Anyway the download thought it had finished about 10 mins ago after only about 190mb and I got a similar error message as well. As for Geoffs, they appear fine so far, but still downloading.

    Hi,

    I'm having issues extracting zips as well. Using Geoff's mirror.

    Probably try it a bit later.

    Ash.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    The news one is definately broken on my server. I'm attempting to sort that out. I'm also missing the WW2 archive. I'll fix that once the News one is sorted.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    It is, but I think some of the files are corrupt. I have tried to redownload them from Irazmus but his LEA's reverse proxy keeps failing. I'm going to see if I can get them off Ric instead as we're both in the CLEO network and I should be able to see his webserver.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    Our webserver has died twice this morning so I've removed the files while firguring out what's going wrong.

    I'll put them back up once I find what's causing it to freeze.

    K, these results so far from Geoffs webserver using IE to download and 7ZIP to extract:

    - Animals & Plants successfully unzipped
    - Environment threw up this error: "CRC failed in WMV\ca_bbc_0483_flashflood.wmv" file is broken
    - History 1 "not supported archive"
    - History 2 "not supported archive"

    Ok all fixed thanks to a little help from Ric. I've generated an md5sum file too so you can check the download was correct.

    Re: BBC Creative Archive

    Cheers Geoff and Ric. All appear to be working fine now except for WW2 which I have tried twice now and fails to unzip. 7ZIP doesn't seem to throw up an error, just won't extract files either.
