Newsgroup downloads help please!!!

24
Found 15th Feb 2009
Ok, this will be a really easy question to answer for someone.

Just downloaded a linux image from a newsgroup, it completed ok, but all I have in the download directory are lots and lots of files with (0001) (0002) at the end (not extensions)

Winrar doesn't want to know

Any idea how to get these files to work?

Tried a combining tool, mastersplitter. No luck again.

HELP!!!

Thanks, but these files don't appear to have an extension as such so that program won't work.

maybe 7-zip might be able to deal with it?

are you sure winrar wont open it? Normally i use it to open the .001 file (or the rar file in amongst them) and it loads each file consequtively.

double click the001 icon and select open with winrar or right click and then open with winrar or rename allthe files ie insted of 001 rename to r01 /r02 / ro3 etc

file is broken.

To be honest, this is the first time I've tried newsgroups and I'm pretty disappointed. Hard to find what your looking for, archaic filetypes/splits etc.
I'm not a n00b by any means, but the drawbacks outweigh the benefits imo

DCX is correct here, although right click and open with>choose programme>winrar does work if you select associate and all the different compression extensions when you installed. HJsplit will do the job perfect though!

u get the astraweb deal grex?

That was pretty rude. :x

Don't misunderstand, I have hjsplit and 7zip - the files have extension. they are named xxxxxxx(0001), xxxxxxx(0002), xxxxxxx(0003) etc etc, split right up to xxxxxxx(0089).

there's no par2 files in the download :?:

I think the issue is that, whatever has happened, the files should (possibly) have .001 etc extensions, but for whatever reason they don't.

Sod renaming 80+ files, I'll grab it from somewhere else

Thats what Ive always used to join split files like these seem to be. (most PPC videos are uploaded this way - it threw me a couple of years back when I saw them first!)

He is quite shy it seems!

The files are probably corrupt
I would say you havent used the par2 files

download and figure out how to use quickpar
IF you downloaded all the files available you would have seen a par file, once you have installed quickpar opwn the par2 file with it, and then it will examine your file you downloaded (the 001, 002's etc) and if it finds it's corrupted it will fix them
(tick the repair button)
then you can use winrar to open the 1st file.

Not all have par2's these days, people seem to be getting lazy and not including them.
