.r01 to .r20 are WinRAR archived files.
Install WinRAR, then double-click any one of the .r files, then choose 'Extract to the specified folder', and choose your destination folder, and OK.
After completion of the extraction you should have a playable video file.
hi, i have downloaded a movie called the transporter 2. When i dowloaded this it came up in the extention r01 to r46, I have no idea how to play this movie. What program whould i open this with? or what should i do? If anyone can help i would be greatfull.
.rar or.r01 - .r## are all video/ audio files that have been zipped for faster download, not necessarily with the program winrar, but winrar will unzip them for you.
If double clicking on the lower numbered file does not work try right clicking and choosing extract to here, which will extract the audio/ video file to the same folder your in. Most of these are .avi files I found the Divx movie player has all the codecs I mostly need so there is no need for me to go searching for codecs.
After you unzipp the rar or .r## files feel free to delete them as you will only need the .avi file unless you plan to seed.
Out of all those files there is only one which does no have '.r##' or '.sfv'.
Click on that one and you’ll see that’s the one that windows will identify as a RAR file.
You just need to extract or unzip that one file. One you extract it you’ll have a playable video. The other files you can delete/erase. They are a mirror packet of the actual workable file. they are garbage.
Thank you Ramses. This is the easiest and it works well. Your words “There is only one (file) which does not have '.r##' or '.sfv'. Click on that one and youíll see thatís the one that windows will identify as a RAR file. You just need to extract or unzip that one file. One you extract it youíll have a playable video. The other files you can delete/erase." Thanks again.
