Which particular zip file are you trying to upload/install? Is that extension compatible with Joomla 3.0?

Hi toivo - I'm trying to re-create my 2.5.8 website which I have been having problems with my webserver's backup & restore. So I have decided to set up a 3.0.2 ver on my localhost as a failsafe backup and work on it, then upload it, until my contract is up with them. But I have been having problems with installing the plugins (I have only tried 2), plg_jw_allvideos-v4.4_j1.5-2.5.zip, and, com_acepolls_j25.zip. I liked them and was hoping they would work. I suppose I should go through all the plg & ext to be sure they are compatible, or find an alternative.
Thanks
