    The most important step in starting retroPie, the big one, the giant leap. Can’t do it. When ever I extract the .img file using 7 zip and double click it, I’m told the whole software is corrupt. Im’ not trusting the reccomended disc imaging software because SourceForge was caught putting malware in user made software. Any explanation as to why it’s corrupt or is it because of the way I get it out? Here is what I am talking about

    When you extract it and then try to write it you get corrupt, or you are trying to open it after extraction in windows and it says coorrupt?

    Reason I ask is if you extract it then try to open it in Windows it will say corrupt. You don’t open it, you write the image to an SD card.

    When I try to mount the disc image, I’m told it’s corrupted. And I’d like to know if Win32DiscImager is safe, because I heard that SourceForge was caught adding malware to other users’ software.

    Win32Discimager is safe. How are you mounting it? Also, I just re-downloaded the image and it is not corrupt. I got the pi2 image and used the torrent version.
