My Java made Zip files won't open in stuffit

I noticed that they also don't open with WinXP's built in zip function.
They open fine with Winzip and Ultimate Zip.
When one mouses over the archive file, stuffit's tooltip shows all the contents. However, the files can't be extracted.
Any tips?
Thanks,
J

Did you try disabling compression? You can continue to use the ZIP format to archive all your files, without compressing the individual entries.

Hi,
That didn't seem to help.

I just tried unzipping my archive with stuffit on Mac OSX (previously I tried stuffit for PC and stuffit on Mac OS9), and this time the contents were successfully unzipped. However, the sub directories weren't created - everything was put in the parent directory.
I thought this may have been to do with the backslashes in the file paths. I tried replacing them with forward slashes when creating the zip, but they reverted to backslashes in the final archive.
Might this be relevant? And how to change them to forward slashes?

Thanks!
J
