Default winrar question

i recently downloaded something and it came in seperate winrar files and when i try to open one of them it says "you need to have the following volume to continue extraction" and then under that it says "insert a disk with this volume and press 'ok' to try again or press 'cancel' to break extraction" does anybody have any advice on what i should do?

What you were doing is extracting a split-archive, usuallly done in chunks of say 700 MB (note: this can be any size), to fit on a CD. In order to extract it, you'll need all of the parts...

With your problem, it was asking for the second part...so as he said, find it! If it's something you downloaded, check the site. If it was from a CD, check it out. Ask whomever gave it to you...!

It's pretty easy just make sure you have all the volumes.

They don't have to be in the same directory...
but if they're not, you have to tell it where they are each time...
now THAT will take forever...
