.RAR to .AVI

Hello people,

I've got a film in .RAR format, i want to convert it to .AVI so i can burn it to disk, how do i do this?

Two likely options.

1. It's a rar archive (like zip only better). Search for and download 7zip as it's free and can extract rar files. Right-click the first file and select 'Extract here'. When done you should have a single avi file (and maybe a virus or two).

2. If it's a single file it was probably renamed so that it will transfer. Try changing the file extension to avi and double-click it. If Media Player can't open it, see 1 above.

Hope this helps. You can contact me through my website click here

yeh i've not got a problem with the exraction, when i open the archive there must be about 40 different files, once extracted it merges into the film, but once that single file has come up, i think it's only viewable in winRAR :S

cheers for postin btw :D
