As ObsPy uses libmseed to read miniSEED files, a straightforward way to 
check the input data is to use the 'msview' utility. It is part of the 
libmseed distribution, though somewhat hidden in the 'example' 
directory. If libmseed cannot read the file it is most probably corrupt 
and you will know before you upload 70 MB of data.
