There are many different maps for many different devices available in many different formats.

What site did you download a map from?

What do you want to do with the map when you've downloaded it? Do you want to install it on, say, a Garmin satnav, and Android phone, or something else?

What error did you actually get?

That's a 2.6 GB download, so it wouldn't surprise me if something went wrong somewhere. If your zip file isn't 2.6 GB, something definitely went wrong. If your file is exactly 2 GB in size, you may need to change whatever you're using to download / unzip it, as that might suggest that it can't handle files > 2Gb.

If you don't need the whole of the US, I might be tempted to try a smaller download from a different site - perhaps only including the states that you're likely to be travelling in.

"unzip de file" = unzip the file"

to unzip the file i used winrar, i download the program form this page
