Versuche gerade mit 7-Zip valides epub zu erzeugen, komme aber um die Fehlermeldung "mimetype entry missing or not the first in archive" nicht herum.

die Ordner META-INF und OEBPF hinzufügen, komprimiert ("Normal").

Wo ist der Fehler, stehe auf dem Schlauch.

Please, write in English if you can, so that the most people can understand and help you. If you can't, there's a German forum :)

Do you make sure you are creating a normal "zip" file, and not a "7-zip" one?

Sorry, I mixed up the languages ;-)

I've got a problem to create valid epub with 7-zip. When I validate the zip-file (renamed .epub) and run the validation tool at I alway get the error message: "mimetype entry missing or not the first in archive".

I've done it in the followin manner:

1 add the mimetype file uncompressed to the archive
2 add the remaining folders (META-INF, OEBPF)

What is my mistake?

@Jelby: yes, it creates .zip, not 7-zip fomat.

Doing a very quick search here for epub+zip give me this:

If you're using windows then, there is also a thread about one.

The simple utility ePubPack
