Am I close or really far away? Am I thinking too simple or too advanced for the challenge?
You tried right things, but you don't have the basic knowledge!
you have to learn how binary works, learn something about number systems!
learn something about numbers, learn something about encoding!
you know what a byte is, but dont u think there are more than bits and bytes?

You are probably thinking too hard.
Count how many digits are there.
Then check the possible divisors.
Then it should be obvious and the first thing you try will be it.
NO! it should not be obvious if you dont know basic things...
a year ago i struggeled with this challenge, too.
now i am laughing about it...
