Its not to do with loading. its to do with INSTALLING the track.

Try dowloading 7Zip - http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

It is a lot better for packing/unpacking the .rar files

Once you have that installed you should be able to unpack the tracks :)

You don't need to do that. Don't touch original .pkz files.

To install a track just create a tracks folder in GPB directory an put the new track there.

(and BTW, I doubt any decent zip software has problems handling files of that size: likely you did something wrong).

Tracks aren't currently using the .pkz files they are still folder.

I belive Connor has downloaded them using the Mega zip download.

Still, you don't need to add them to the tracks.pkz file (I know you know, mostly for the others).
