Thread: Problem After Extracting

  1. #1
    ok, i have d/l about 5 movies in the last 48hrs from suprnova using abc 2.6.1, now all these movies have come down in .rar files-no problem, i have extracted them but they remain in an 'extracted' .rar file, i mean all the individual files come together to make one big .rar file, and thats it, i had this problem with a mivie called bubba-ho-tep, now it, 'somethings gotta give', cheaper by the dozen' and i cant remeber the rest. am i doing something wrong or something different that i never used to before??

    Have you tried extracting the big *.rar file now?
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    ok im bored so i will tell you the way i do it and it should work for you

    1. once a file is fully downloaded, open your download directory, and double click on the rar file

    2. winrar should open and you see inside the rar file, you should see like cd1 and cd2 directories ( if its got 2 cd's )

    3. click on extract at the top of winrar and choose a directory to extract it all ( make it an empty folder its easier that way

    4. close winrar and go to the directory where you extracted the files to

    5. open the cd1 folder (if there is one ) and right click on the first rar file and choose extract here from the menu, you only have to choose the first file and it will extract all of the others at the same time

    6. in about 2 minutes you should now have the full avi file in the same folder as all the small rar files

    run the avi movie and make sure its ok, then you can delete all the small rar files

    7. repeat step 5 and 6 for cd2

    once you have both avi files you can delete the big rar file you downloaded too, or just keep it in your shared folder for others to upload

    hope this helps

    ok, thats cool, i have d/l a movie called '21 grams', this movie has d/l but it is not .rar, i mean the file extensions are not .rar, so have renamed them adding .rar at the end so they become extractable, but unfortunately they do not become extractable, i keep getting this error message , a dialogue box pops up and says

    You are not supposed to rename the files just open the first one (.001) with winrar.

    It is a split archieve and if you rename the files winrar obviously cant find next file for extraction.

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines


    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to there level and beat you with experience!!

    ok, when the files orginally d/l, they did not have .rar extensions, the first one was alli-21gram-xvid-disc1.000 ' thats it and then the files were in ascending order upto 49 and abc said the movie was fully d/l. the reason why i have added the .rar ext is because they are not recognised by winrar in that bare state, the icons still look as if they need to be completed but i have gone to suprnova to start the d/l again but after checking existing data it says d/l complete.

    EDIT: and there is 49 files for cd2 aswell

    HJSplit can be a handy app. Some people use HJSplit to cut up a film, rather than winRAR
