    So you downloaded some files and there are a bunch of em... named .r00 to .r40 (for example). Well, this should clear the air for the newbs on what to do.

    (1) Download WinRar ( http://www.win-rar.com/download.html ). Durring the installation, it asks you a few questions. It will ask you what files to associate with WinRar. Just check what you want. But just chosing .rar will be fine. (Do not select ISO.) Then it will ask you to integrate WinRar into shell. Choose yes, and choose your context menu items that you want. (those will be options when you right click on a .rar archive. very handy!)
    ----------------------------------------

    note: WinRar archives come in different extensions, depending on what version of WinRar the ISO was archived with.

    Examples: .001, .r01, .part01.rar
    ----------------------------------------

    (2a) So now you have WInRar installed. Now it's time to extract your ISOs. Go to your folder where you have your downloaded files. If you have a crapload of files, choose list view in your folder to see what you are working with. 99% of the time, all you will have to do is right click the first file in your list (remember the "context menu options"), and choose "extract to." Then browse for a location that you want your ISO extracted to and click "ok." WinRar will extract the ISO and whatever else is archived in that group of files to your destination of choice.
    Note: The time it takes for the ISO to extract is dependant on the speed of your computer and the ammount of files it needs to extract from.

    (2b) If by chance you right click your first file and you do not see "extract to" as an option, do not punch your monitor, it's ok. Just open WinRar and browse to the folder that your downloaded files are in. You will then single click (just to highlight) the first file in your list and choose "extract to" from the buttons on top. It will then open a dialog box so you can choose your destination. Click "ok" and it will extract. Again, extraction time varies.
    ----------------------------------------

    (Q) "I get an error when I try to extract my ISO, says it is corrupt, what do I do?"

    (A) If you downloaded your files, there should be a .sfv file with your group of .rar files. This is a Simple File Verification file. It is a file format that stores the CRC32 checksums of files. It lets you know if files are corrupt or missing. Here is a link for SFV programs that will check your .rar files.. http://koolmonkey.netfirms.com/sfv-md5.html I use PD SFV, but anyone will work the same. Just open the .sfv file with the program of your choice and follow the instructions.

    (Q) "OK, SFV says file .xx is corrupt, now what?"

    (A) Well, not much you can do, except try to download the file again, and run the SFV program to verify. However, since you downloaded your files, you might have come accross files with the .par extension. These are "parity" files. Without going into a long speech on how it works, I'll just tell you that .par files can fix missing or corrupt .rar files. Usually there are a percentage of .par files in relation of how many .rar files there are. Here is a better tutorial and download link to QuickPar and how it works.. http://usenethelp.codeccorner.com/QuickPar_Primer.html

    (Q) "OK, my ISO is extracted, how do I burn it to DVD/CD?"

    (A) Our good friend Quadratic has made an excellent tutorial, complete with pictures to help you out. Go here.. http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/141037

    Hi there. I got some problem i'm unable to solve. I did use the winrar to extract but it says that no archives found in the selected file or folder. How am i supposed to extract it ? I use quickpar to check and there's no damage file at all. Just that winrar and winzip is not recognising file. FYI, the extension starts with .001

    Get the newest vesion of WinRAR and try again.

    Also, since version 3.0, WinRAR uses a new compression algorithm which is superior, but sadly, not backwards compatible with older versions.

    It might just be a bad archive or empty/bogus ISO.

    thanx for the info
    but im on the burning part
    can i just go to nero after the iso is extracted and burn it as an image?
    or is there more to it like using one of those programs?
    this is all i neednto know b4 i burn my game, and also it is on a dvd+r, could that be a reason for the game not work?

    yep just use nero and burn the image burn at the slowest speed possible.

    xbox dvd drives are very picky with burnt media my xbox has a samsung dvd, and it reads my memorex 4x dvd-r and dvd+r just fine...it is basically trial and error when it comes to media...if one brand doesn't work you will have to try another

    BR7 Thanks for the informative item on SFVs, however, I have a similar problem (no archive files) using WinRAR v2.8, v3.0 or v3.42. I have checked the files using QuickSFV v2.32 and it tells me that all files check OK!
    Any thoughts on what to try next?

    The files (pnt-ar7a.001, .002 etc)were generated only last month, so I would assume they are most likely generated with a resonably recent version of WinRAR.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    If you double click the .001, does it open with WinRAR? If it does, what do you see? The folder or the ISO? Keep clicking till you see the ISO, then highlight it and choose extract to.

    I'm scraching my head on the whole "no archives" error. I never got one, nor ever seen one.

    OK... I think I know what is going on now.
    I was opening WinRAR, then trying to extract the .001 file from within the browser. - only got a "no archive " message.

    I have some stupid Fax-viewer program that is associated with the .001 extension, so when I double clicked on it, it tried to open in the Fax thingy.

    After reading your response, I tried right clicking on the .001 file in explorer and selected "open with", and then selected WinRAR. Up popped WinRAR with a bin and cue to extract!

    It is possible that others may have a similar pre-existing association causing them problems.

    Anyway, I'm underway for the moment.
    Thanks a million!

    Very possible. I cannot remember what extension (.rxx I think), I cannot right click, nor double click the file, even if I associate it with WinRAR. So to solve that, I just open WinRAR and browse to the location of those files and extract from there. Works every time.

    It's probably .001, by default WinRAR doesn't associate with that extension set. You can double click and do an open with and force an association but the right click context menus still won't show up for it, only double clicking will work.

    Frankly it's annoying, I'm trying to find a way to get the right click to work for .001 too, I hate having to open each one seperately when I have a bunch of downloads I want to extract.

    Hi there. I have read your info on extracting the downloaded .rar files and followed the link for burning them onto a dvd.

    what I want to do is download a game, extract the correct files, burn to a dvd and play the game.

    But can you confirm if I need a chipped / modded xbox for playing a downloaded then burned game. The link you gave seemed to indicate that you needed a chipped box if you wanted to make a backup of a currently owned game.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Can you recommend a mod chip bearing in mind I haven't soldered anything in about 15 years.

    Also what is involved in flashing my xbox and whats an autoinstaller.

    Do you need a larger HDD.

    I apologise if all these have been answered and if you don't reply I'll assume that the answers can be found elsewhere.

    Thanks DynatyxXx
