    With certain browsers downloading a ipsw file will turn it into a .zip. When you unzip it do you get a folder containing a bunch of files? If so, the zip is the actual ipsw file. Rename .zip to .ipsw or if the name is .ipsw.zip then just remove the .zip.

    What are you using to download it (Safari, FireFox, IE)? Use Finder (OS X) or Windows Explorer to look at the folder with the IPSW. Make sure the IPSW extension is on the file. I believe one of the browsers saves it as a ZIP file if the associations are in place for compressed files.
