Which file are you attempting to open?

Try the built-in Windows .zip utility and see if that works.

Found a solution that worked for me! Try opening the file with 7-Zip. According to 7-Zip it's a .7z-archive and not a .zip-archive.

Try this: http://www2.corsair.com/yellowbeard/...02Tool_PDF.zip

AFAIK the tool hasn't changed. It looks like they just re-zipped the files.

Woah!

I can't update firmware.Run updater as administrator, choose right signature file but getting red X "fail" message.Why?Mobo is MSI 970A-G46 with latest windows drivers and bios.
Problem can be caused about raw read errors i noticed at this drive?

Solution?

Woah!

I'll answer myself :

You need MSAHCI driver.Not AMD!!
In device manager under ide/ata atapi - sata drivers you need "rollback" driver to back on original msahci driver!

Now everything work fine :)
