Invalid .rar archives

Post by hound » Tue Oct 16, 2007 6:43 pm

Hi. I don't know if anyone else has had the same problem but I've downloaded all of the .rar archives for BAA and BAA LO from the easy-share link. When I tried to uncompress them, 7zip (the archiver I use) gave me an error saying that the file was not valid. The only ones it would decompress were the Another Story - Bashaku Ando and the Glossary.

Do I really need WinRar or is there another way to fix that problem? Perhaps an alternate link would work? I don't have Internet at home and have to download these from the school computers so BitTorrent is not an option :( What can I do?

If this is not the right section, feel free to tell me or move this around.

Hmmm the rars are made with winrar 3.30 (old version)
The required version to extract is v2.9 (even more ancient)
So either your 7-zip is badly out of date or there is a data corruption.
Since you can uncompress "Another Story" and thats rarred with 3.30 i supect download errors.
Did the download go really fast?
Is the size about the same as displayed on the webpage?

Here is a SFV checksum file to be sure!

Code: Select all

And a PAR2 parity file to fix them if the corruption isn't too big (Google for QuickPar)

The downloads took about a minute or two each and the file sizes were right. Anyways, thank you. I'll redownload them and try to fix them with that PAR2 parity file you supplied. I'll tell you what it gave me for results as soon as I've tried it.

EDIT: I'm still downloading them right now. I don't have a pay account so I can only download 2-3 files an hour from easy-share. I've played around a bit with QuickPar and for some reason, when I open the .PAR2 file you provided, it tells me that the recovery file itself(Recovery_BAA.PAR2) is "damaged(39 blocks available)". That's not normal, is it?
