I could not open the file, despite being correctly downloaded. So, I required using some unzip online website to be able to access the 20 dcm files.

Gotcha! Don't use 7zip, probably it's an old version of winzip o winrar

I also cannot access this. Downloaded fine but cannot unzip the file. Any advice?

I have downloaded but could not unzip it. Is there a password protection for this file?
