id_rsa: invalid format error

Hi, I am a windows 10 user.

I use putty created DSA key, and save the public key & private key locally into file name & id_rsa respectively.

I also enter the public key under the website of Buitbucket, SSH.

But I can't reach the repo, it gives me the following error

id_rsa": invalid format
Host key verification failed.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I checked myself that I am a "read-only user", does that matter?

Or anything else I need to do for the public key generation?


By the way, I also tried the same with RSA key, it doesn't work neither.

Thank you.
