It's probably a translation error between Mac and PC. Have your tried
copying the zip file to your PC and then unzipping them there?

Help! I’m assuming Steve is asleep, so perhaps some night owl or West
Coaster can answer a question for me. I installed several sets of DeedMapper map sets.
These were e-mailed to me, and my Mac unzipped them just fine, turning them into BMF
files. I then copied those, along with the accompanying MBL files to my PC with
DeedMapper, each in a separate county folder (for example, Albemarle folder contains the
MBL file for Albemarle deeds and the BMF files for Albemarle maps). When I attempt to open
the deed file Albemarle, I get a series of DeedMapper error messages saying “File
C:\me…\DeedMapper\Albemarle\.GA2BDF02.BMF is not a map file.” I click OK and get another
message saying the file will be skipped. I click OK again and it continues on until it has
apparently gone through every BMF file in the Albemarle folder. If I just keep clicking
OK, eventually the error messages stop and the deeds file opens with the maps overlaid
Does anyone know what I have done to generate these error messages? It’s probably
something silly I have overlooked, but I’m so used to my Mac that I’ve almost forgotten
how to use Windows and a PC (whew!). I’d really like to stop getting these error messages
every time I open up a deeds file.
