    Ok then the uploader has it password protected. Check where you downloaded it from for the password. Sometimes it's the sites web address.

    If it was a torrent, sometimes people list the password in a comment.

    and sometimes they want you to sign up to some lame site.

    occasionally it's because some of the files are corrupted.. you can always try fixing them.. sometimes it works.
