    just right click on the rar fileeither

    rar00
    rar01
    rest.rar

    and choose extract to that will start the extraction of whatever files have been archived it depends how it was rarred up as to which one you select

    keep us informed

    hey, i tried extracting my win rar files 81 in total which i got from bit torrent. When i tried extracting them to the destination folder they were way to big to fit on my computer, each one of the rar files 81 turned out to be 3.8 gigs

    trust me, from bit torrent i got about 81 rar files in one folder. Each of those rar files is about 47 mega bytes but when you extract just one the one file comes up to 3.8 gigs. I have no idea why it would be so big, its just a movie...can somebody help me figure out how to get these rar files to dvd please.

    trust me, you are mistaken. what you have is a 3.8 gig movie that was rar'ed and compressed, then split into 81 parts. the 81 rar files = one 3.8gig movie.

    lol, if each one of the rars contained 3.8 gigs, the total file would be 308 gigs. 1/3 of a terrabyte for one movie! No, trust me on this. Not to mention the fact that it is impossible to compress 3.8 gigs down to 47 megs.

    Balaam, i'll tell you my exact steps: I downloaded the torrent "The Exorcist- The Beginning [Telecine DVD-R][NTSC][JDM-RL]" to a folder on my desktop. When it finished it gave me a folder with 81 Win rar archive files totalling 3.73GB. I right clicked part 1 anc clicked on "Extract files..." Then selected a destination folder. These are the exact files that are now a result of my extraction: "VIDEO_TS-8KB, VIDEO_TS.BUP-8kb, VTS_01_0-68KB, VTS_01_1.BUP-68KB, VTS_01_1.VOB-1,048,574KB, VTS_01_2.VOB-1,048,574KB, VTS_01_3.VOB 1,048,574KB, VTS_01_4.VOB-940,776KB." These are all the files i get just from extracting one of the 81 win rar archive files.

    lol. this is so simple, but let me give you an analogy that might help you comprehend.

    Imagine there is a really big room, like a gymnasium. on each of the 4 sides of the gym there are 5 doors, making for 20 doors total. now, the doors may be in different locations, but they all open up to the same room.

    Its the same with rar files. by selecting and extracting one, you are extracting the entire archive. each of those 81 rar files opens up to the same files. It doesn't matter which rar you chose to extract from, since they all lead to the same place.

    it might be different if you went through each of the 81 files and un rar ed each but you didnt do that 81 times did you

    lol, come on people - stop confusing the new guys

    lemaroc, it is a spanned archive, meaning the file is spread out in each 40+ meg rar archive, so when you extract from the first one it will automatically extract its second and third parts from the other rar files, totalling one complete file, believe us - that is your DVD.

    try burning if you don't believe me

    if theres a bin file there must also be a cue file also ......either mount the file with nero

    or get a copy of alchohol 120 and do it with that using the wizard
