That looks better, thank you.
However I still have a memory error when I try to run it on three or more files that are over 100 MB?

import zipfile, glob, os
from os.path import isfile
zipnames=filter(isfile, glob.glob('*.zip'))
for zipname in zipnames:
        zf=zipfile.ZipFile(zipname, 'r')
        for zfilename in zf.namelist():
            newFile=open(zfilename, 'wb')

It looks you're using an unnecessary extra loop.
Aren't the contents of fname similar to zipnames?

I tried it with one loop (for zipname in zipnames:) and it worked.

P.S. You're at jpl? That's awesome! I was looking at internships they
have few days ago.
