I've been using Comicrack for a while and it's been great until somewhat recently. Some of the digital rips of comics I've been downloading have been corrupted in some form or another, and when I try to open it, I get blank pages and red x's. I've seen people mention that unpacking and then repacking the file can fix that, but I don't seem to be doing it right, because when I repack, I just get the same result. Any explanation on this would be helpful as I can't seem to find any information under the FAQ or in any tutorial threads.
Thanks

I've found a couple of ways to help with this.. Sometimes files that contain folders or subfolders have problems in ComicRack, so eliminate those when repacking. Also delete anything out of the archive that isn't an image file or the xml file that ComicRack creates.

The file in question has only image files in it, no folders or even any xml file.

Take a look at malor89's perl scripts.

There are 2 scripts that can help you: testarchives.pl & extract&rename.bat
