Computing With Amstrad (Part Two)
« on: 19:11, 10 February 11 »
Hi,

Thanks for the great site. When I download Computing With Amstrad (Part Two) and open with 7zip I get the error attached:

Can you help?  Also I have purchased from Ebay a DVD which apparently has all pages from Amstrad User Magazine (I note you seem to have some missing according to the text).  Assuming they have not just ripped yours would you like me to post you a copy of the DVD (Free of course).  Just let me know offline.

Many thanks

Peter Jones

Use WinRAR instead?
It also can try to fix CRC errors...

Thanks, but that has not fixed it:

!   C:\Users\Peter Jones\Downloads\Computing With The Amstrad.part2.rar: You need to start extraction from a previous volume to unpack Computing With The Amstrad\cwa8604\cwa02040486063.jpg

I tried the repair option as well.  Sorry I should have mentioned that.

Try right click on Computing With Amstrad (Part one) and unpack using winrar
you need to have both pack in the directory.

They probably work together.

Hello mate,

Really, thanks for pointing the problem out and for your offer. I think I do have the complete collection among my DVDs - will have to check. If not, I'll take you up on the offer - it'll be really helpful, because in turn I send the mag collections out to anyone who asks for them at no cost...

Thanks again
T

Many thanks for the help.  Downloading the 3 parts worked.

I was wondering if anyone had scans of the issues after the 30 issues downloadable from the website?  Also June 1987 only has the first 24 pages.

Best wishes
