Hate these.rar files!

Recommended Posts

Ok after days of downloading skys of arcadia cd 1&2,

 

titled: DC - Dreamcast Skies of Arcadia - Echelon - dj3 - CD2 [found via www.fileDonkey.com]

 

When i looked at the contents of the.rar archive, its not just one cdi or nrg image, its several individual files, they stay this way before and after i unpack them from the.rar archive.

The end result is the following files...

 

e-skies1

e-skies1.sfv

e-skies1.002

e-skies1.003

e-skies1.004

.

. (all the way down to file 035)

.

e-skies1.035

 

I tried burning the seperate files together, by burning them all to a cd, but the cd wont boot up. I tried using 100% alcohol, but you can only select one file at a time. this would take too long,

 

are the file supposed to join together to make 1 big image or do they stay seperate when i find a way to burn them?

SO how do i burn this one?

do i have to use a disk juggler?

 

Thanks

omg. all you have to do is open the first rar file and extract the image. The image will use all those rar files to extract itself. Thats how easy winrar and such are :lol:

no, the 33 files in the archive say 33 files once extracted, they dont combine or anything

He probably means that once you've extracted those numbered files from the archive, open the first numbered file in WinRAR and see what it contains.

everyone has trouble with these the first time hehe

 

open the.000 file and it will say What program do you want to open this with?

 

Pick WinRAR and it will open, then hit extract and choose your location and bam your done, your left with a CD image

I just cant do it?!?!?!!? their is no.000 file, the.001 file extracts but it comes out individually still. Their is a MSinfo file and a File SVF,

The file svf is unrecognized by my computer, dont know if that will change anything.

 

But really i did exactly what Shibathedog said, My extracted contents look exactly like the archived ones!!!!!

I select the file open it with WinRAR, select destination and bam, 38 freakin files

ARGH!!!

The SFV is only a verification file for the compressed files. It contains CRCs and some other misc. info.
