i tried to join a file (.001, .002, .003, .004, ect) and the file turned out as "FileName.joiner" i tried changing the extention to .Iso, .Rar, .Exe, but no luck.. what in the world am i supposed to do?

the .nfo file says

a) unpack
b) roast
c) install

whats Roast? and how am i supposed to unpack something thats already unpacked?



edit: i used WinRar to open the first file and i got a bunch of BIN files and 1 CUE file, so i tried extracted and i'll try to burn it. it told me i needed files that i dont have.. its similar to the ones i have, except the file extension is a little different.. should i just change it?

Also, i think "roast" is just another name for "burn"

Usually files noted as 001 ,002 ...... are files left as a result of scan disc activity certainly they were prior to XP .

it does sounds like a RAR split file. maybe corrupt though.

but you could try a nice little program called hjsplit.exe

Those file extensions are usually part of the entire RAR package and should be unzipped along with the main .rar file. When I have multiple files such as that, I highlight them all and open them with WinRAR... it takes care of the rest. You might give that a try.

w/ winrar you can always hightlight the 1st file and do a "test archive files" to see if any of the parts are messed up. also the "roast" part of the nfo was probably something to do w/ the program ... perhaps someone cooking warez :rolleyes:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
