hi,

I recently got a game ( 2 DVD ). One DVD has the game files directly, while the other DVD has winrar files with extension like .r46, .r47 .... Now, I cant extract the contents of second DVD unless I get the complete sequence of files.. So, I was thinking of creating split files from the contents of the first DVD , but with the version of winrar i have, it creates files with extention part01, part02 ....

can someone tell me how to solve this strange issue?

Thanks

I don't get the point of what you are trying to accomplish. Even if you have the exact same version of winrar, these are two different DVDs, which had different compressed values, checksums, etc. How is using parts of one file going to help you decompress the other file?

no, both the dvd's are not having compressed files. One DVD is having the uncompressed files. The other one is having the zipped split files. The way I see it, someone had compressed it from complete folders. Each DVD was supposed to have these zip files in two sets. But by mistake they put the actual folder in one DVD. So, if I split the files from the DVD 1, it should recreate the same files, but my problem is the format.. i want .r00 instead of .part00.

I don't know about checksum values.. Will it effect the unzip process?

Easy, just contact the vendor that sold you this. It might be possible that you are missing a third dvd, or, if the game is pirated, then you are out of luck.
Also, zipping the other dvd wouldnt work

Have you tried an axe for splitting the files? Lizzie Borden did, successfully, many years back. But then she was not exactly splitting files or hair for that matter. But you never know. Might just work.
