Well, I was trying to download some of Sollthar's explosion plugins, but it didn't work. They would download about a third of the way, and then finish instantly (which is very odd because I have dial-up), but the zip files wouldn't unarchive.

STOP! Unable to iunarchive "GroundExplosion05.zip" into "Desktop". (Error 2- No such file or directorv.)
It hasn't done this in the past when I downloaded other plugins. Can anybody help?

GroundExplosion05.zip should be about 200KB. If it's less than that when downloaded to your machine then it'll be corrupt and won't unzip properly.

I've just tested it and I have no problems downloading that file on my machine. What program are you using to download the file? It might be worth trying something that supports download resuming, so you can make sure you have the entire file. I'm sure someone will be able to recommend a good program that does that on a mac.

Well, I tried it again, but this time downloaded them one at a time, and for some reason it worked. Hmm.
