    With the paltry amount of info you provided, 99.999999999999999% of the time WINRAR is the answer. Download, install it. Then select the first file in that dir, right click, select extract, then enjoy your free pirated file.

    tried winrar, right clicked but had no option of extract! the files have no extensions except the number of the file eg:"hr-gtg.009", i tried to select winrar as the program that opens that file type but nothing works

    tell me what you need to know and i will provide you with the info u need to resolve my issue


    this is file number 1 ---[100%]--[All-files-CRC-OK]--[36-files]--[TLF-BT NO 1]-

    those are rar files. so open winrar, go to the directory that contains all of the files you want to extract. select every single one of the 36 files you have downloaded. Then click extract, its a button on the top tool bar. that should do it.

    overwrite will replace the file. What was the file you downloaded?

    No, all you need to do is extract the complete file from the split files you have. I can't really explain it better than I did above.
    Try this(assuming you're using windows):
    Start>programs>winrar>
    in winrar, navigate until you come upon the dir that contains all the split files you have.
    double click on the first file, xxx.001 or what ever it is called. That should open the file, and show the complete 'garage to glory' file. on the top tool bar, there is a box that says 'extract'. click it and extract to your prefered folder.

    I had DLed 2 of the same files. Both with the same name. I stopped one early becuz of slow DL speeds. When I tried to open the one I stopped, the same thing happened to me. Are you sure its the right file?

    inside EVERY file is "hr-gtg-BIN" and i cannot extract them into the same destination folder as each other, i am at a loss here, i thank you for your patience balaam, u have been great, is there any other way, like a program that creates torrent files and puts them back together. also what is a SFV file, i opened that and it had codes for all the split files

    An sfv file is a master list, which allows you to check to see if you have all the files you need to recombine the archive. It also allows you to check the file size and see if the files have been modified since they were created. Don't worry about the SFV file.

    See, hr-gtg-BIN is the big file, which was rar'ed and compressed, then that rar was split. This is the way almost all large files are traded over most networks. You have to select ONE file, the first one, and winrar will automatically uncompress and recombine it the complete large that is inside the rar's. There is no other program to use. There is no other way to do it.

    so then how do i make them 1 file again, winrar does not seem to be recombining them, there is no 1 particular "MASTER" file, just a file that has the name "---[100%]--[All-files-CRC-OK]--[36-files]--[TLF-BT NO 1]-" it has nothing in it at all!

    the SFV says i have all the pieces!

    i extract, and it just wants to overwrite the file before it ie: "hr-gtg already excists do you want to overwrite it"

    it just seems to me that from what you say it SHOULD recompile it all into 1 file, but it is not???????

    Dude, I explained it in my first post. you don't extract each one. only the first, and winrar does the rest for you. now that you have the bin and cue files extracted, you can burn them with your prefered burning app.
