    When you start getting a lot of missing/corrupt files it is usually one of two things:
    1. Faulty RAM, look for Prime95 or memtest86, both are free programs to test RAM. Look at Overclockers forum to see how to use the torture test in Prime95 to check your system. The bad RAM makes Quickpar return a lot of errors.
    2. Bad server retntion, a lot of ISP newsservers sux big time when it comes to having the files you need for downloads. A commercial server like Newshosting or Giganews will make a world of difference in getting complete files.

    Its from another forum!!!

    I'm willing to bet it has something to do with the completion/retention of the news provider service that he's using. What service are you using?

    You will need to make sure that you also download the .par files on top of the .rar files when downloading a movie. Then use something like quickpar to repair the archives. Once you do this then extract as usual.

    I think your cash would be better spent on a good news server like NewsHosting since if your using your company service its most likely an issue of completion. You can check out our referral link for NewsHosting at...

    Thanks for the help guys, i am going to sign up to Newhosting as soon as thier site signup goes back online its been offline since yesterday Reality,verizon is my server right now and i use newzbin as an indexing site i cant dl things older than 11to 12 days with verizon so will be switching in a few hours hopefully.I have been getting many albums for the time being.Reality the last movie i tried to download was one you posted here Terminator 2 Extreme Edition WS NTSC [CCE 9 Pass] but that had a missing file or part validation failed in about the 93 part.I really wanted that too as you said the quality is excellent.I will try to repair it next time using quickpar
    as cldnails said.Seems complicated though whats pars?

    Pars are just a repair file for the rar archives. I know it sounds complicated, but it really isn't once you do it once or twice. Once you have installed quick par you simply double click on the first par file in the folder and the application will test all the archives automatically, it'll let you know if they need repaired, and then all you have to do is hit repair and let it do it's magic.
