    .001 .002 .003?

    Un-rar them-- and not in the same folder, make them go into another folder because they may unpack separately. Don't use winzip or windows unzipping tool - use winrar.

    If there is one .rar file, un-rar that and it will un-rar all the rest- if there is a .01 or .001 file, un-rar that and it will un-rar the rest also-- If there is a .rar- always use that, if not, start with lowest number file..

    It will probably compile it into a bin and cue, burn that to DVDR/CDR or whatever.-

    It's possible some dumb person compressed the files twice, meaning all those files are in .rar format.

    They'll be named .000 or .r01..etc. ..Just use winrar to "unrar" them.

    If not, it is quite possible they are .vob, in that case you'll need some DVD software.

    I'll recommend WinDVD 5 Platinum.

    And another great decoder to use is FFDSHOW, it plays just about every format possible, DivX, Xvid, mpeg2.. etc

    Also get this- http://www.headbands.com/gspot/


    Open video files with that and it will tell you exactly what codecs are needed and also if you have them or not, and if not where to get them.. Get ffdshow like mentioned.

    Also get ac3filter- to get control of dolby pro logoc/ 5.1/ etc..

    and the say: "dev-hppa"

    then I open it up to view inside: and there are two file:

    one: dev-hppa.bin

    two: dev.hppa.cue


    and every single one of these buggers are 14mb...


    Interesting...

    Re: ok

    don't you have windows set to show file types all the time? Go to folder options and uncheck - hide known file types..

    Anyway-- if you didn't use Winrar--- delete all those and start over you said you already unZIPPED them right?

    Delete what you unzipped-- now what do you have?


    What did you start with?
    You probably unzipped them wrong the first time. You need to start with the right one..

    Wow- you are new at this I guess.
    If you don't answer any questions at all I can't help..

    .sfv is a system file checker-- ignore it for now.

    forget it. Those are part of what you need to get the whole thing unrared correctly- if you have left over files .037 or whatever that are 14mb or so-- you messed up.

    well not if you have left over files-- but I can't seem to pry that info out of you.. lol:dead:

    otherwise, yeah - burn it- but you'll make a coaster or incomplete avi if you don't have all the files.

    Oh, I though you said you had a few left over .r30. .37, etc files??


    EDit-- well anyway- if you don't have any left over, you should be good --it looks like you tried it again or something.... because what you were describing before would not have worked.

    Okay, if you're unsure about burning it, and possibly wasting a disc.

    Get daemon tools, install, then mount the image using the .cue file.

    That way you can check it out to make sure everything is alright.

    Only reason I wonder is because usually those files are a little bigger than 590mb, but maybe that's just the size it is. If you found a rar and unzipped it, and it used up all the little files, then you are set with that part...


    Right click cue, burn w/ Nero. the if you don't have all the other stuff mentioned, definitely get it because they are all very useful free programs (except that stupid .sfv checker program)
