It’s not a text file. It’s a stuffit archive.

Now, your Mac should have come with Stuffit Expander software already installed. But if not, you can download it.

Once expanded, that archive might contain anything at all: an installer executable, a disk image, no tellin’.

Good luck.

And is the card reader plugged into a hub or directly into the computer? Some things are picky with hubs.

For example: My iPod Touch won’t work when plugged into my USB hub. I have to plug it directly into the iMac.

If you faced any problem of the card ‘not reading’ type, always try to change the slot, or move the reader slowly, or lastly change the reader itself, as described at sd card reader problems
