    Did you get it from a newsgroup or a torrent? If from a ng then you need the par files and you run those first, then unrar.

    What are Newsgroups?

    Newsgroups are Internet discussion areas where users can post messages to the group and read responses from other users

    i use newsleecher as my newsreader software this is $3 a month.
    i use usenetserver as my server this is $15 a month for unlimited.
    the .rar files usually come down each around the 100 meg mark, you will usually get around 70, 71 or 72 files per 360 game.
    i could spend literally an hour telling you how to use newsgroups and news reading software i will give you this link...http://www.slyck.com/ng.php?page=1

    read this if you can be bothered,

    i used to download from the torrents not only did it take an age but sometimes files are corrupt and its just messy.

    it takes me roughly two hours to download a 360 game.

    once the files are down you may need to use quickpar to fix the .rar files.

    i'm going on arent i ? here are some useful very useful sites...

    http://www.quickpar.org.uk/ (to fix .rar files with .par files)
    confused ?http://www.slyck.com/ng.php?page=6
    http://abgx.net/ (this is the game database)
    http://www.newsleecher.com/ (this is your newsreader)
    http://usenetserver.com/index.html (this is my server)

    there are forums help and guides on all of those sites...

    newsleecher and usenetserver are fantastic and have served me extremely well

    remember you must own the original to download and use the back-ups
