Thread: Help with Grabit and NZB files please

  1. #1
    Hi Guys

    I am completely new to newsgroups, and like others would like to try them.

    I have subscibed to my ISP's newsgroups. I have downloaded and installed Grabit. But I find it a bit user unfriendly. I find it hard to get any listings of songs or myusc or Mp3's so I do not know if it is me or my ISP's newgroup selection.

    I see in this forum there are some NZB listings for music. Can I cut and paste one of these into Grabit so that I can get a feel for user groups ?

    I have read the tutorials, but they don't seem to cover this aspcet very well.

    Regards

    Digby

    In Grabit, click Edit >> Preferences:

    Under the interface tab, there is an option down at the bottom to associate NZB files with the Grabit program. Make sure that checkbox is checked.
    Then all you have to do is download the NZB file from our NZB section and either open it in the associated application, or save it to your computer and doubleclick it, it will open in Grabit and ask to you if you want to import the file selected. Click the grab button, and everything else is automatic.
