You need to download and unzip this file:

in the same folder. And then try again.

I downloaded a SRTM30 DEM tile
from http://dds.cr.usgs.gov/srtm/version2_1/SRTM30/w100n40/ and I can
not get it to load in QGIS (v1.7.3, Win7 64-bit).  QGIS keeps saying
that it's an unsupported raster data source.

I've searched for many different things online, and I can't find what
the problem is.  Is there something special about the SRTM30 DEMs that
prevent them from loading?  Am I missing a plugin?

Any advice would be appreciated!
