Nice 1 hursty, that's one fer the bookmarks
Ok but why Are they so Much .oo1 And so on Extenstion files which One do you burn.What do the others Do sorry for the Question if it Seems stupid But I'm sure others are Wondering as well...Thanks for the Breakdown
They are all pieces of the same archive, broken into smaller pieces for easier transfer / management.
Their may be lots of files but they all work together to reproduce the original content be it a single video file or hundreds of smaller files. Simply double click the first in the set (.001 for example or .rar) to open the winrar application (assuming you have installed it) this will allow you to see the contents of the archive. Or, as the guide says, right click the first one and choose 'extract here'
for more details see the winrar website at http://www.rarlab.com/
so basiclly they are just there leave them there and extract the first one not the rest if 1 of them are deleted there may be a problem am i correct ? just analyzing sorry thanks for the info and respond
The archive cannot be recreated if there are any parts missing.
If you have the luxury of more than 1 hard drive, it is faster to extract from one HD to another. This is because your PC is not reading from and writing to just one Disk. Instead it can perform the read, decompress, write operation much faster.
I have a winrar archive from a friend, 50 folders in all, a program installer. I have finished the extraction and have these extention files:
winINI- an installer type
winINI.mds- an MDS file
is something missing with this, I need to ru the installer.
it must be an image,
try opening dvd decrypter and selecting/burning the MDS file
hey i downloaded a game, and its also .001 -> .021, but theres also an .sfv and a .nfo file in it, and each time i try to extract the .001 file, it gives an error and sais the file is corrupt, what shuld i do??
are you sure its 100% finished?
re-open the torrent in a different client?
also run the sfv file in a sfv checker (google)
if still no good....chuck it
i tried the sfv checker and it sais that the .002 file's status checksum error is, can i still use my torrent, i downloaded it 100% sure, and maybe can ik repair the error file
now i opened the 002 file with winrar and extracted a windows file, and there in was a 002 file that when was extracted, there was an iso file, i replaced that file and now everything checks right with sfv checker
it worked after all thx alot
