    Red face CAN't OPEN WINRA FILES. PLEZ HELP!

    I have just downloaded Super mario brawl and it is in a large amount of seperate wira files.
    I have Winra installed but I do not understand how to open so many seperate files(83 in all) If I open a file i can see that there is an image file present but I do not know how to open them all up in order to burn them with Imgburn.
    Can some one plez help me out as it has taken me about a 10 days to get all the files downloaded.
    Many thanks

    you don't have to open them all.....open one of them and click and drag the image inside onto your desktop (or wherever you downloaded all the rar files)

    try this:

    open up a winrar file and just tell it to extract and see what it does.

    only problem is, if the person doesn't have the computer setup to show file extensions, it doesn't show part1.rar part2.rar etc......it just shows a bunch of rars with the same file name.

    just highlight the downloaded title that you that you want and hit the extract to button.




    after you click the extract to button...you will get another window to select where you want it to put the iso.... so decide where...and after it's finished you will have an ISO file

    I am running Xp.
    I have tried the suggestions above but I think that there is a file missing. Please do not qoute me on that though.
    As the files are all in the Rar format soI can not see the file numbers even when I looked in the properties.
    So what I am doing is opening up a file and extrating it but I am getting the message"You need to have the following volume to continue extraction".
    There is a browse button under it and I am browsing for the Desktop!
    underneith that it says "Insert a disk with the volume and press OK to try again or press Cancell to break Extraction"
    So I am cliking on OK but I am prompted with the same page again, and again, and again.
    I may well have a duplicate file on there but I can not tell because all the files seem to be the same size apart from a couple of smaller files. There are a total of 86 files to open and on the downloading source there are 86 files numbered 00 to 83 and acouple of files are not numbered but I have downloaded all of them. Hopefully there are no duplicates.
    I have even tried to download a single file from this game on another PC using Xp and I am getting the same result. that is why I think that it could well be that I have a file missing or a duplicate file. I will download everything all over again if i have to but that would take about 10 days unless I am using a wrong download website.
    Thaks again
