    Try ]merlins-portal.net for the nzb files (point to the files and tells your software what to download)
    also ]nzbmatrix.com is a good one. [url]www.nzb-magic.com/forum/[/url] isnt bad either but not as easy to navigate.

    ]united-forums.com is ok but very l33t ish


    Software wise for nzb's and newsgroups I have a few essentials:
    |Altbinz to handle the downloads
    Winrar for extracting files
    quickpar to repair any iffy downloads using the par2 files that are sometimes supplied for this
    DamnNFO for reading the .nfo files (notepad does the job but DamnNFO is neater)

    ok. Well basicaly i will tell you what happes mate.... i search a full list of newsgroups and a long list of sites come up e.g

    alt.binaires.games.xbox360
    alt.binaires.images.fun
    alt.binaires.mou

    there are literally hundreds.... then when i click on one i get windows mail pop up on my screen saying cannot connect to a server.

    i really dont know what going on here.. all i wanna do is download 360 games =S


    EDIT: downloaded Alt.binz now all i need to know is where to download the 360 games...how do i import NZB files?

    get yourself on newzbin mate

    Ignore those mate try one of the above sites and all the links are there parcelled together ready to download.

    What software are you using to download?

    Have you set your server up in it ready to use?

    ive just downloaded alt.binz mate. not sure how to import NZB files. no i havent set up a server? lol

    Go into setup and you will find something like the following, the settings are the right ones for astraweb you will have to use your own username and pass though!

    Once you have downloaded a NZB file just right click>opn with>alt.binz

    Or there is a setting in the altbinz settings to associate nzb files with it.

    Ok... when i go to download a file from there it is in a RAR format. do i open with or save to comp? once done that then what?

    really sorry for all this brah

    Double click it so it opens with winrar then you can either drag and drop it to altbinz pane or extract it and right click to open with altbinz.

    PS dont worry it took me a few attempts to get going with newgroups I gave it a go, gave in etc no I havent looked back since I got the hang of it, so much safer than torrents to as it cant be snooped on by ISP's if you set the server up so its encypted (like in my pic above)
