    I have been having a hard time trying to unzip Wii game's that I have downloaded. Like ever time I extract them I get a error saying the file is damged. Now I tho it was the game that I had downloaded but wen I tryed 3 other game's and got the same error I known I was doing something worng. I tryed Winrar,7Zip,Unrar and none of them did the job. Anybody have any idea on how to unzip them. Thanx for ur time. Also I wasnt sure if this was the rite place to post this topic.

    Um...
    One of the parts might be corrupted.
    You might be missing a part.
    Try re-downloading the part where you get the error at.
    I usually don't have this problem o.O

    Are you talking about actual zip/rar/whatever files or ISOs?

    What do you mean by "for ISOs?" I mean are they .zips, .rars, .7zs, .tars, or are they .isos?

    Okay, thanks for answering. I was just making sure you weren't trying to "unzip" ISO files or something.

    I was thinking the same thing - when you install Winrar it sets the icon for ISO images to the winrar icon making it look like a zipped/rarred file.

    If the extension is .iso , just try burning it with nero or imgburn , and set ImgBurn to control ISO images (right click on file - open with , always use)

    Uh, no. He's just making sure you aren't confusing an ISO for a RAR.

    I am so sick of explaining this, but what the hell.

    Open winrar, go to options-settings-integration-uncheck the iso box and then save. Problem solved....for the 1,345,345,666,443 time.

    when you download the .rar make sure you also download the .par files if there are any....if the file is corrupt quik par can fix it , which will then let you extract it

    If you are producing 1 big rar file after you unrar the previous rar's it will. As stated previously, winrar is being associated with the iso extension, what I mentioned will fix it.
