Windows XP has built-in support for uncompressing zip files. So, you should be able to open the file by double-clicking it, or by right clicking on it and choose to uncompress or unzip.
But you can download and install a dedicated unzip utility, like free 7-ZIP, that offers added functionality and support for other types of compressed files (ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, DEB, DMG, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MSI, NSIS, RAR, RPM, UDF, WIM, XAR and Z).

I downloaded the zip archive.


Hello, Jacqueline -

If you received the zipped file as an attachment to an email sent to you, contact the person who sent you the email and zipped attachment and let that person know you are unable to unzip and open the file. Ask him or her if the file can be sent to you the file in unzipped format. If that is not possible, as the sender what software he / she used to zip the file.

If you were not sent the zipped file as an email attachment, then what is the zipped archive where you found and downloaded the file?

Best wishes.

How to Zip and Unzip Files with Peazip?


Follow this steps.
1.PeaZip is a freeware cross-platform archive
manager that provides a single GUI for Open
Source technologies ( 7-Zip , FreeArc, PAQ,
UPX. ..) on Windows, Linux, and BSD. The file
manager allows both to select files and
folders to be archived as Zip files (or other
formats), and to select archives to be
unzipped. Alternatively, file selection can be
performed with PeaZip system's context
menu entries (not featured in PeaZip Portable
version) or simply dragging and dropping files
from / to the program.
2.Archive creation can be started dragging files
on the application, or with "Add" button in
program's tool bar. The archive creation
interface prompts by default creation of a Zip
file, but the file format can be customized, as
well as compression ratio (from faster to
better) and other miscellaneous options,
including encryption. PeaZip relies on
optimized Deflate algorithm for compressing
in Zip format, that usually compress 5-10%
better than standard Deflate but keeping
compatibility with other Zip utilities. 7Z
format gives better compression ratio, but is
slower than Zip. As quite unique feature for
archive management software, PeaZip
supports two factor authentication (password
plus key file), random password generation,
and features an integrated encrypted
password manager. "Advanced" tab features
more fine-grained options, "Console" tab
transform the task in a command line i.e. for
use in scripts or for study purpose,
"Schedule" tab allows to transform the
interactive task in a scheduled one.
3.Archive extraction can be started from system
context menu, or dragging compressed files
on the application, or with "Extract" button in
program's tool bar. It can handle multiple
archives even of mixed types at once, or
selective extraction of content from a single
archive. Over 170 types of archives are
supported: classic ZIP files and its variants,
new WinZip's ZIPX file format, RAR files, old
ACE archives, Microsoft's CAB and WIM files,
Apple's DMG packages, ISO and UDF disk
images, and many more.

I hv lenovo thinkpad r61.. i hv drivers bt,itss nt


The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

How do I unzip downloaded file on Vista and copy it to floppy disk,via usb to floppy converter? Thank you. Cathy.


Windows Vista has a built-in function for unzipping files in Explorer. Just right-click the filename and select Unzip from the menu. But I never use the built-in Windows function, because it's incredibly slow and has limited functionality.

My favorite is 7-Zip, which you can download from http://www.7-zip.org/. It will extract files of .zip, .rar, and many other archival formats, and it can split large files into small sections to be stored on several floppies.

7-zip adds a line in the context (right-click) menu of Explorer for 7-zip>, so you can unzip files right from Explorer. Splitting files requires starting 7-zip and finding the file in it's own explorer-like interface. Right-click the filename, and select Split... A little dialog box appears asking what size chunks you want to split the file into. In my test just now it defaulted to 1.44M floppy disk-sized sections. You also choose the folder you want the new files to go to. The actual splitting operation, even on this old Win 2000 computer splitting a 3.6M file, was virtually instantaneous.

The program is free for personal or business use.

How do i update the firmware for the VP8870? Ive already downloaded the zip file. All my video files suddenly disappeared! Anyone know why?


While performing firmware update all data will be erased !
See the manual on page 36:
Vosonic VP8870 manual

The firmware update for the player is PMP.VP8870-1.0.0.B2.mtg :
Since you've downloaded the zip file, were you able to unpack it with
Winzip op Winrar ?
When using XP you can unpack by:
1. [Right click on the zip file] Open with > Compressed maps [left click on Compressed maps]
2. The next screen shows the opened zip file. On the left side the
folder task manager can be opened ( Folders / Maps in the top bar not selected): "Unzip all files" : follow up the Windows unzip wizard and
remember the location of the files.

How to do the firmware update is explained in the pdf file "How to update 1.0.0-B2 - VP8870 .pdf", added to the firmware update in the
zip file.
Remember:
While performing firmware update all data will be erased !
