    Attempting to update firmware on p3p and keep getting a cpgz file extension on the bin when i try to unzip it. Has anyone else encountered this? Using a mac, OS X.

    Try this:

    Change the .cpgz to .zip and double click on it again.

    Try downloading it again, it may be corrupt.

    This usually happens with a corrupt file. Even if the source file is OK, a browser download can finish too early (0nly 99% downloaded, etc) and the file becomes unusable. Sometimes re-downloading a fresh file can solve it, but as you've tried 5 times already, I'd suggest you try a different browser, or different machine.

    If extracting a .zip file creates a .cpgz file, then extracting that file will usually create another .zip file and will contine back and forth in a loop.

    +1 for a different machine. Maybe Windows.

    Mine did that too. A fresh download gave me a .bin file. What browser are you using? Maybe try a different one?
