raspbian-jessie file

Sat Oct 31, 2015 6:56 pm

I have downloaded the 2015-09-24-raspbian-jessie.zip file from both zip and torrent. The SHA-1 checks but I am unable to unzip the img file. Tried different utilities but keep getting file corrupt message. I am working with a Windows computer.

Any suggestions?

Try unzipping with 7z.
There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't.

unzip on Linux worked fine with that file.

Yes 7Zip is cross-platform and works well:

Thanks all.
7-zip worked. So much for standards.
