problem using winrar (and iso files with Daemon Tools)

posted in General, viewed 3391 times

Often when I download files and try to unrar them, after Winrar finished 'unrarring' one file it will come up with a message

'destination folder already contains processed file' and gives me the option to a) replace all, b) not replace all, or c) auto-rename.

Even if I choose 'auto-rename' it will keep asking me for every file. Why is this and is there a way around it?

For example, I just downloaded a tv programme and it came in about 80 files, labeled xxx.r00, xxx.r01, xxx.ro2 etc.

After I have unrarred all of them (Using 'auto-rename') I end up with a large number of .iso files of about 50mb each.

Now, when I use Daemon Tools to mount any one of them as an image, nothing happens - my cd drive does not show anything and can’t be opened/played. Mostly using Daemon works fine but sometimes it doesn’t and I wonder why. Any ideas?

I CAN open the files with VLC but each file is only 39 seconds long...What’s wrong here?

Thanks so much for your help! reply

Why can’t I send a win.rar file? Every time I do an email and attach the file it states “appending message failed”. Any suggestions? Is it that the receiver cannot accept win.rar files or is there a problem on my end? Any help is appreciated. reply

any set of files with the .r## extension are all in a set. just UnRAR the first file (xxx.r00) and the rest will go with it, hope that helps if you have more questions. reply
