You need burning software that can burn image files which as I said would be Nero or Alcohol 120% (sure there will be others but these are the two I use)

Burning, simply refers to putting it on disc.

Once you have one of these pieces of software then select - burn image file to disc -.

click the cue file and then the image file will be burned onto disc.
Finally getting around to trying out Linux, life's hard when you lack intellect.

As well the bin/cue can be mounted in windows using Daemon Tools or any other virtual CD driver so that the movie can be previewed before archiving to disc (or if you don't have a CD burner).

-------------------
Back to the first post I'd also include: the motivation of splitting RARs into parts instead of one big RAR (naming of pieces); using no compression when archiving already compressed content (MP3s, Xvid); Checks and what can be done about corrupt archives (SFV, PARs).

You need a media player like "Media player classic" or VLC to play the file, its known as an SVCD. google for either of them. then right click on the file and go to open with and select the player you have installed!

What?

I THINK he means how do ppl put a DVD onto 1 cd. The answer is they [which happens to include you and me as opposed to, you know, 'them'] use lossy compression, instead of loseless compression.

I use MagicISO to create and burn iso image. It is a quite good iso creator.

Excellent guide
My only small niggle would be that there is no mention of .par (not compression i know but for newsgroup noobs it is a must and they do always come with your rars) and winrars built in repair function (also works on zip files)- which has pulled me out a couple of times.
A guide like this should be manditory reading for anyone new to fileshring.

The ACE format is as powerful as RAR, in most cases the result is a fourth better than ZIP's one. Unfortunately less accepted than RAR, but very powerful.
To handle these files you should use:
WinACE
WinRAR

You can unpack archived files with one batch console command. It seems useless because a person can just right click and highlight them all to extract, but some of them embed more archive files inside the outside package. I assume they usually are packaged like that from newsgroups or it is just a old fashioned tradition. The script I am going to share helps out with the rar files embedded after a tar extraction. It can work under Linux too with wine and 7zip. It helps but there is a problem with the location of the extracted files. I could not figure it out but it extracts to the root of the folder archive. It is a help for someone that downloads more than one file. You know leeching away at xdcc and ripping the tar files feels like doing a tape backup and restore procedure.
It is a simple windows console script. Just run where all the extracted tar files are with the embedded .rar files in each folder.

Code: Select all
for /f "delims=" %a in ('dir /s /b *.rar') do "c:\program files\7-zip\7z.exe" x "%a"


I tried to play around with the switches to get it to extract to the folder the RAR is located in but it didn't work for me. It still helps out.
