7-Zip extracts it fine.
Converted one of the subs to srt format and there were loads of lines in there that had some sort of repeated none-sense. No wonder the sites anti-spam filter rejected it as an upload. I'd convert them to srt, remove those unnecessary repeated lines and try uploading them again.

@mrtinkles: Thanks for checking.

I want to upload a file to IMDB ID 1101776, while I'm logged in (https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/upload/idmovieimdb-1101776). I get this error: "Unsupported subtitle format for CD 1. Only srt, sub, smi, txt and ssa formats are supported B"

This is a sample from the srt I want to upload: http://www.filedropper.com/test_23

That error refers to the anti-spam defense system.
Most common is a forbidden URL in the subs or a lot of exact repetitions. Sometimes just forbidden strings.

In this case the problem is the two times "'" in line #44.

In general, just make sure the subtitles are how they should be (according to general subtitling guidelines) and most probably you'll be fine. For example, "'" is an HTML-specific entity which does NOT belong in normal text. Use the apostroph ( ' ) instead.

Actually off-topic, but worth mentioning: I see some other things which shouldn't be... If you want to create subtitles, I would surely recommend you to read these two forum topics:
1. What you definitely should NOT do, the traps for the beginner: viewtopic.php?t=16591
2. And the general guidelines if you want to create good subtitles: viewtopic.php?t=12639
