Sorry to hear that... but, you should never, ever, zip something you intend to keep! Zip files are known to corrupt!!

You can try these programs to repair the file, but try to make a copy first even if it's corrupted.

it is not good...i forgot to say that i had my ipod stolen while on holiday..so this is why i was trying to get into the zipped file...which was stored on parnets computer...and zipped while i was away...so not best pleased at the mo!!

anyways...i will need to go to the computer and get all the info you have asked for tomorrow...as i am not on it now....i will get back to you then.(do you want me to PM you as there will be a time lag? b4 i get back to you)

i am sooo hoping there is a way of getting the files back to save me the time of putting all back on. i will try the links you sent tomorrow.

i really am very grateful for your help.

Your specs are not needed in this case. I hope you can recover your files.
