    I downloaded a whole bunch of RAR files that are named 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, ect. The RARS contain video and audio. I assume that there is a way to convert the RARS back to the original format. Is there an easy way to do this?
    I thinking that there is a simple step that will convert these RARS to their native format?

    rars are packed files like zips. you need a program such as winrar to unrar them. rars named 1,2,3 etc are normally part of a spanned set and with winrar all you normally have to do is have them all in the same directory and unrar the first one and it should do the rest automatically

    Right, hope you've got some cold water and a sponge to hand.

    Well create a folder, then right click each rar and extract them to that new folder till they're done.

    A montser to ask. ;)
