  • I keep getting the error: "A device attached to the system is not functioning" when I try to extract files from a .7z

    I've tested the archives through the 7-Zip File Manager, and it doesn't come up with any errors, so I think they're okay.. I've tried both 3.13 and the 4.10 Beta, and both do the same thing.

    The files I'm working with are all on a regular HD.

    Any ideas?

      please explain the situation a bit better ...

      Using the GUI or commandline? etc etc etc...

      if command line what is the command you are using?

    • Sorry, I'm kinda new to all this.

      Using the GUI, on a Windows 98SE machine.

      It usually goes through about a quarter of the progress bar, and then the message pops up.

      It has worked fine on other files before, so I guess there's a chance these are corrupted, but I thought that would show up in the Test.

        Is it only this one file your having problems with? Are you still able to extract other files?
