    Can you provide screenshots? (http://guides.macrumors.com/Taking_Screenshots_in_Mac_OS_X)

    Btw, when you single click that file and select GET INFO (right click or CMD+I), what does it say under General and More Info (screenshot is easier)?

    And are you sure it just makes a copy of the file and does not extract it properly?
