r00 is a WinRAR format
but you’ll need the proper codec to view it afterwards. reply

large AVI’s are RARed up and split into small chunks for posting on newsgroups.
to piece it back together you open one of the .R00 or .RAR files, and winrar pieces them back together, you then extract the AVI from it. reply

winrar does this automatically. all those R** files are just pieces or a bigger rar file, that when put together extract to one file reply

Sorry, I’m not normally this thick but it just keeps asking to overwrite existing files so I end up with one file that is the same size as one piece of the movie. This wont play at all. Can you please give me some basic instructions for this. I have 13 files, all 14.3mb except one which is 3.3mb. There is also an SFV file. how do I get all these to unpack into one big file that I can then extract the avi from to watch??

just open ANY ONE of the winrar files and extract the file that is in it to your desktop or to your shared folder ;) read the .nfo file with notepad.exe, and dont worry about the sfv file reply
