    just downloaded Barbershop 2 through Rapidshare. Now, I try and unrar it using WinRAR (It's in 9 parts), and for some reason, each and every one of the files gives an error that the file format is unknown or it is corrupted/damaged. Have tried downloading the same film from different Rapidshare links, still not working.
    Have also tried unzipping the film using 7-Zip, but to no avail.

    What would be my best bet now?

    Thanks

    If the files have another extension (not .RAR) try renaming each .RAR, and try Winrar again. If this doesnt work files are probably screwed up. It does happen, you see
    torrents for movies with just one file, called RAR repair.
