The file is broken?
« on: February 21, 2016, 12:28:49 AM »
WinRAR says "Unexpected end of Archive". Last file seen by WinRAR is "Commodore C128 - Magazines - [TAP] (TOSEC-v2013-10-03_CM).dat". Tried re-downloading. No change....

check if the downloaded file (TOSEC - DAT Pack - Complete (2304) (TOSEC-v2016-01-03)) is
60,2 MB (63.207.774 bytes)

in size.

it looks like you have an unstable internet line, so you might want to use a download manager of sorts

Yes. the file size is right. I tried downloading with and without a download manager. No luck...

Also, I assume 2304 means there should be 2304 files inside, but I see only 384

if the size is correct, try unzipping using something else than winrar.

I tried downloading from different ISP's and different computer.. I have no problems.

there are 2304 dat files (this is excluding readme, scripts and cue files)

OK, I downloaded today and it reads correctly now. I really don't know what happened there. Yesterday I tried several times, today it worked somehow...

Great! I guess that it some connection problems (yours or from the server) might have corrupted your file by terminating the download before completed.
