that is the extention of the file? i.e. the last 3 digits after the full stop - .zip, .rar, etc

Once you have the actual movie file itself (a .avi) use ConvertXtoDVD which does most formats flawlessly.

You need to extract the file first, try winzip and then see what kind of file you have, you mightn't need to convert it at all. http://www.winzip.com/prod_down.htm

If you are having trouble extracting the file you can also try 7zip which is a free compression utility.

7-Zip

what movie is it, most likely its been posted several time in different formats. You might want to look for a different release.

TC = Telecine. Basically a copy of the film taken using a machine that transfers from film to digital system. Quality should be as good as DVD. There is a good explaination of the different types of releases here,

Pirated movie release types - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


As for getting a copy. Take your pick usenet, P2P , filehosting, etc
