    If the files are in the correct folder and you still get that error, it's most likely that either map file is corrupt or that you accidentally downloaded a map for another game (for example, a CS:S map instead of a CS map).

    Yes I agree with sheeprider, if the maps are in the right place >> C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\steamname\counter-strike source\cstrike\maps << then everything should turn out fine. If this error keeps showing, then you should try a new download source, or just make sure your doing everything correctly.
