    Use QuickPAR instead. Do what I said in my previous post, wait for QuickPAR to finish scanning the files, and you should get a screen saying something like this:
    [​IMG]
    the "Repair not Needed" might say "Repair required" or "Need xx more Blocks" If "Repair Required, just click the repair button and wait. If "Need xx more Blocks" then you're downloaded files have too many blocks missing to repair. You either need to download more PARs or re-download some incomplete RARs and hope that they are complete.

    @Sumone157
    depends. Using Newsgroups to talk or Upload/Download material which you own the copyright to is not illegal. Transfer of copyrighted material is illegal, just like P2P, torrents, IRC etc.

    hi Guys,

    first off the Newsgroups are awesome. Anyway I downloaded a large rar archive and of course it said some of the archive was corrupt. So I then ran quickpar following the instructions given - it did a repaair then checked the file again and now said no repair needed. However when I tried to extract it still fails? Anyone know why this may be the case?

    Did you try bypassing the errors when raring? See if that works. If not maybe the file is nuked.

    Also, FYI Newsleecher new 3.9 edition has integrated quickpar and rar--it's done automatically for you.

    There are 10 pat2 files, and I am trying to use the quick par thing but have no idea. I tried just extracting the rar, and its telling me rar 5 is corrupy and rar 6 is missing...


    WOW had a few incomplete files and that MISSING file, used quick par and it freaking fixed everything lol.

    AMAZING. Bye bye torrents. BTW, BT, My isp is the server I am using and its all free too :) woo hoo!

    Thanks!

    EDIT # 2

    I need help, the only thing that extyracts is a 360 file. I have burned over 60 360 games, but they have always come with a dvd file.

    So I made one in notepad withthe layer break then the name of the iso which was r-q4 (quake4) then saved it as quake4.dvd - is this right? I haven't bothered burning it yet because I dont wanna waste a disk.

    Please help, thanks.

    Oh and do all the games come down without dvd files?

    One thing I must say about this is that if you have a premium server, don't use Grabit to browse newsgroups, it can't handle too many headers. I.E. if you pay for 90+ days rentition, grabit still can't display 90+ days of files. I use it for .nzb's only.

    tailschao, edit your sig to conform to forum specs ASAP.
    4. If you want to use both text and image in your signature the image should not be more than 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and you can use up to three lines of text.

    bryson15, no email posting as per forum rules above, post edited

    I've been using torrents for over a year now and just started with newsgroups I don't know if it's just I don't know my way around but I can't find anything decent I use giganews

    I'm on sct, ftn, AN for audio softwares and other private sites and it beats any newsgroups at least torrents sites are clean and easy to navigate most of the stuff on newsgroups is old stuff that you can find on limewire and too much spam

    I'm still new with newsgroups but that's my first impression

    Sorry ddp, i sorta lost track.

    @frenchie2
    If you just wanna leech, you don't need to manually view the groups. You can just use http://v3.newzbin.com and download from the .nzb's

    Well my problem is I can't find any decent groups I'm looking for video and audio editing softwares or anything related to that and all I can find is very old stuff that's been on any public torrents sites for ever
