    Hi

    I'm new to mac and I have a problem when I want to open a downloaded subtitle file from for example allsubs.org. It's in zip format normally and then inside that zip file there has to be an srt file..

    But when I download the file it doesn't give me the zip file. It just gives me a file without extension titled 1..

    I have allready installed Stuffit and other extractors like unrarX but nothing works..

    Does anybody know what the problem is and how I might be able to solve it?

    Thank you very much!!

    Jeroen

    You could try adding the extension yourself - e.g. .zip or .srt - at the end of the filename. It should then ask you whether you want to add the extension. Do so, and Finder should then handle the file accordingly. That's assuming that the extension just got lost during the download... it might, rather, be a corrupt file. Either way, try that out.

    I have tried that now, but it still doesn't seem to work properly.. I was able to attach the zip extension, but after unzipping the file then I've got the extention zip.cgpz So I don't know what to do with that..

    The strange thing is, that when I open the exact same file on a windows based computer I can easily download the file and works it properly..

    So could this be something on my computer specific or what could it be? If you want I'll give the site from where i got the file and maybe someone will see what the problem is then..

    This is the site: http://www.allsubs.org/subs-download/vals-im-bashir-2008-dut-1-cd-waltz-with/821493/

    Thankx!
