    Help movie DL & file burn question pls

    hi guys

    ok just getting into downloads and dvd burning...

    i have recently downloaded a movie, now i dl this from rapidshite, it was in 5 files, now dl is complete how do i burn this onto a dvd via nero, i understand the basic instruction of burning dvds but if the film is in 5 files do i have to burn 1 file at a time?
    or is there a way to burn them in order at once?
    i hope that makes sense?

    sorry to be so thick.

    thanks
    adam

    well you need to unrar them and see what that leaves you. if its like .avi or whatever it will need to be re-encoded in nero to work on a DVD player. this can take a couple of hours

    Or are they .vob files?

    as above said unrarr them into one folder then convert into a dvd as its looking like you have dl an avi sized film
    use winavi to do the converting then burn to dvd


    youll need to check where you dl it from to get the password, sometimes its the name of the place you got it from

    hi guys

    thanks or the replies, ok i have dl winavi and have coded the files just fine on 1 film, but on the other 2 when i try to unzip it comes up with quite a few error mesages and will not unzip, if that just a bad dl or am i missing something?

    I think you should save your time and download your film from elsewhere by the sounds of things.
