    Find the folder where the files have been downloaded to. To do this, look at the Options or Preferences in Azureus(or something similar, i use uTorrent)and check Downloads to see where the directory points to. Chances are if you didn't choose one, then it, did it for you. Find the folder with the files inside? What type are they?

    hi and thank you for the reply. this is what i have as an extension after the file name.
    "TS.XViD-SaGa" so i am so confused. it is in a folder though? when i double click on the folder, it has another folder that is title sample. and then a whold bunch of files that have saga-bsnx.r00 and the numbers get higher in numerical order? is there a way i can just download utorrent and then try to do it using the program that you use? is there a file you can recommend i download and from where to download it so ican try it?

    @ theprose

    You have winrar installed?

    Double click the first of the block of files saga-bsnx.r00
    They will unpack and give you a large file (probably a .avi)
    You can watch that in just about any movie player, or make into a dvd with an application like convertXtodvd http://www.vso-software.fr/products/convert_x_to_dvd/
    Free programs like this are available.

    The .r00 are the RAR files. You need the program onya said in an earlier post. Its WinRAR and it will open all of those files so that you can extract the video out

    Hey to Janrocks and mightyed8, you guys are like greased lightning with the replys....LOL. Thanks for the input.

    As I mentioned earlier, you will need winrar. It isn't free but there is a trial version. Then follow the good advise Janrocks and mightyed8 have suggested.......all the hard work has been done for me....LOL

    See how the word winrar is blue? click on it. Download the "latest stable version", follow the prompts and all should be well.

    Did you follow Janrocks directions? What you need to do is click on the first "block" (00) then choose EXTRACT TO with rar, to a named folder on your hdd. It may be easier to create a new folder yourself, and name it accordingly. Now you know where to EXTRACT TO. The jobs done....all the other "blocks" automatically unpack. Open the Avi file(s) with your media player and enjoy.

    Hi.. for your nat error you should read this http://www.azureuswiki.com/index.php/PortForwarding
    It has lots of useful information. You will need to play with windows firewall settings (allow exception) and choose a nice high numbered port (49xxx to 65535 somewhere in that range) Then set the same port in azureus. There is a test tool in >tools.

    To make a dvd from the downloaded files see the link I gave earlier for a dvd authoring tool.
