  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I used 7-zip extract a very large file that is supposed to be an iso image but instead i get a very large file that has no extension. (something along the lines of  filename.7z).  has anyone encountered this problem and what can i do about it?

    thank you

      When you list the contents of the 7zip archive, does the file actually has the .iso extension ?
      Did you test the archive, is it valid ?

      it is valid and the nfo file says that it is an iso image.  I ran the included par2 files and everything checked out ok. Ive also made a few posts about it and other users have both reported teh same problem and others said that the iso extracted fine.

      any help would be appreciated.

      i also tried redownloading the files but encountered the same problem

      I came across the same problem, and have thusfar been unsucessful in getting 7zip to recognize the iso file inside the file without an extension.  7zip is great dont get me wrong, but try using ICEOWS to extract the ISO when a file is in this format.
