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 aboutInsecureSpikeParticipant01/14/2016 at 06:44Post count: 571

I’m using a Windows 10 machine using the rpi 2 image. I have it downloaded, but it keeps saying it’s corrput.rdhanded2Participant01/14/2016 at 18:35Post count: 132
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?rdhanded2Participant01/14/2016 at 18:59Post count: 132
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.herbfargusMember01/14/2016 at 19:18Post count: 1858

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.rdhanded2Participant01/14/2016 at 22:08Post count: 132
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.
