Thread: Can anyone help?

  1. #1
    Hi to all,

    new to this as you'll probably see, just downloaded my first movie, terrent completed and saved to the preassigned destination folder.

    Great, problem being that the file has the correct name, but the file type is just that, a FILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    cant do anything with it, do i need some additional software to use this? have i done something wrong?

    please help

    thanks #

    PS: Sorry if this is in the wrong section, please move if needed

    try to play it in videolan http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
    or
    take a screen shot, and post it here

    or in explorer, clik tools, folder options / view - unmark "hide extensions for known file types" then see if it gives you an extension.

    also check at the site site you downloaded it from for comments on how to deal with it.

    Just tell me what the file extension is, then I can help you. You want someone to walk you through it but you haven't told us anything yet.

    Also, what do you mean you need to try again? You mean re-download the file? Why do you think you would have different results?

    the torrent is Transformers_--_the_Movie,_avi,_English,_good_quality

    the size is 695MB

    screen shot to follow.

    The reason i said try it again is that i altered the file name slightly, wasnt sure if this had caused the problem

    Always check the torrent's description and info/NFO to know what exactly you're downloading...
