hi i use alzip to unzip and unrar files when doing this make sure you click all files and it should be fine.
The errors might be because the rar files are corrupt,or incomplete

try using quickpar to repair the files as when you dl you should get some par 2 files which when you open with quickpar they will repair your rar files then you need to extract them

Right click the first rar file and extract, if this is not working does it ask for a password ? If not as other people have said the file is more than likely corrupt...

thats it you 2 lost me
i have 31 rar files and 19 r files and a sfv file
if that means anything to you
The important file you have is the sfv file, SFV is an abbreviation for simple file verification. if you use some software like quicksfv with this file it will tell you which of your archives are corrupt.

PARity or par files do the same thing as SFV files, in addition they can also repair/ reconstruct damaged data. Most people use quickpar for this. Obviously since no par files were posted, you cannot repair the archives, with this method.

You can try downloading the damaged archives again or try getting the person who provided the files to create and send a few par files to repair the damaged archives. If the first file is damaged and there are no pars etc you are snookered.

The choice for burning images is surprisingly ImgBurn. It provides better burns than nero and is free (unless you want to make a donation). It may be free, but it burns images way better than nero.

I thought nero could burn IMg files?

i think nero can burn img files but for some reason i cant get it to burn as a dvd to watch on a normal dvd player, i'll try that imgburn and see how that goes. thanks for the link blackbeard.

Hi - useing nero

open nero

close the first box that opens

click recorder [there should be file ,edit view etc at the top of the page]

then burn image , a box will appear, find the image of the film, if you find the image of the film change at the bottom of that box where it sais files of type to image files this will show you images only.

double click the image in the box then burn, i burn at 4 speed even thoe its a bit slower i never get a bad burn.


hope this helps

enjoy your film :Cheers:

Nero wont burn IMG files you first have to rename the file from .img to .iso
then burn iso as above,
Personally I use both nero and imgburn But I only use nero if I'm
using DVD+ discs and want to bitset them to dvd-rom

One of those situations when you are both right, IMG is an ISO format.
You can actually use the nero API with another tool called ImgTools, here's and old review.


The unfortunate thing about nero like most apps it has become bloatware. I used to sing the praises of nero all the time, unfortunately, each new release adds new features, but burns worse. There are quite a few people like me in some of the other forums I inhabit, sticking with the old nero version 5/6 for simple stability and quality.

quite true blackbeard ! i very seldom use nero now certainly not the newer versions i use img burn or convertxtodvd or winimage these three seem to cover everything
