Cant load SQL Sample database

Hi I am working through the Learning Path SQL and relational databases and have hit a problem with loading the sample files in Learning SQL by Guy Vaccaro. When I try to restore the sample.bak DB I receive the follow error message whether I run the restore from the gui or command line:

The media family on device 'C:\Users\FAMILY\sample.bak' is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family.

Can you please point me in the right direction to solve.
