    New to the Bit Torrents... had no problem d/ling the file I wanted, but now I'm a little confused. The dl consisted of about 82 WinRAR files, I do know how to extract these and all, but all of these RAR files contain files with the same name. For example VTS_01_1.VOB thru VTS_01_5.VOB, I know what these files are also. I guessing all these files have to be combined in some way, just not sure how to do it. I extract the first RAR file into a folder, then of course when I try to extract the second it wants to overwrite the first ones. Do I need to extract these all into different folders or what?

    All those 82 RAR files will have the same files in them, as all the files eg VTS_01_1.VOB etc are spanned over the 82 files.

    Therefore when you open say FILENAME.RAR and exttract the files, its takeing it out of all the files eg FILENAME.R01, etc and putting it together.

    Hence, you dont have to open FILENAME.R01 and extract the files and so on.

    So once u have extract those files, all you need to do it open up Nero and select DVD-VIDEO, then Drop all the files VTS_01_1.VOB etc into the VIDEO_TS folder.

    and this will still work even if the files have the extension .part 001, .part 002 and so on... rather than .rar, .r01 and so on or do I need to rename the files?
