Need a Terminal Expert to help with unzipping a damaged file.
Posted on 2008-06-09
I have a large zipped file that is damaged so wont unzip. I used terminal and managed to list everything that was in my zipped folder with this:
zip -F /Users/smoore808/Desktop/music.zip
It made a big huge long list of everything in there, but I dont know how to get it out. I tried to enter this:
unzip /Users/smoore808/Desktop/music.zip *.mp3*
But this error keeps coming up everytime I try to get something out:
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /Users/smoore808/Desktop/music.zip or
/Users/smoore808/Desktop/music.zip.zip, and cannot find /Users/smoore808/Desktop/music.zip.ZIP, period.
Could someone tell me what this error means, or even better, how to get rid of it? Thank you in advance :)
