    go into my documents

    at the top > tools > options > folder options > view > don't hide extensions for known file types, untick it.

    then youll know what it is.

    im getting the same error.

    ive just done a conversion to ntfs via the convert.exe in xp.is it possible that a file which was originally created on or the machines from the users i downloaded from is in fat32 and it cant read it properly?

    im using edonkey btw,not emule.and its only with "supposed" rar files.ive thought about it being iso cd image but it wont open in nero so...
