    Thats great. Do you know if the NTSC movies work ok once you burn them?

    I cant help but notice that website doesnt have many 360 or wii games to be used with a PAL system.
    Do you know any others, which are good and easy to use?

    @-dsf4703- im still a noob myself at newsgroups but i will help with what I know.

    If your ISP is not listed then you are SOL with a free newsserver unless you pay for one.

    I would suggest this http://www.news.astraweb.com/

    You can sign up and pay for what you want as they have different pricing plans.

    Just asking, but what have you gotten so far as in client -Newsleecher-, -or Newsbin Pro-?

    Pretty new to to Newsgroups here, too. Here's another good pay newsserver: http://www.powerusenet.com/ Astraweb is good but I believe I had a problem with it working with PeerGuardian but that was a few months ago.

    Newzbin,binsearch etc cant post what they dont have thats why. Newzbin doesnt actually host anything they just index whats aviable on Usenet/newsgroups.

    Oh and atop of which Newsgroups arent the top of the piracy ladder, they fall somewhere in the middle to uppercrust, the latest games,movies etc hafta filter down to Usenet first before Newzbin,Binsearch can index em.

    Hey guys looking for some help. I had Vista and my hard drive was damaged due to my daughter banging on the laptop. I reformated my pc and put XP on the new hard drive. Before I used newsfilegrabber without any problems. I am trying to use it again and no matter what I try i cant get the files to extract to a folder. At first was a socket error. I fixed that, the files look like they are downloading but never extract to a folder. They stay in the cache folder that remains empty instead of extracting/downloading to the set download folder. To the left of the line I DL has a white sheet and thats it. The icon should have an arrow on the sheet meaning extracted.
