put them in the same folder. extract the first one with winrar and the rest will automatically follow. burn iso file

boot from it. pick hard drive tools. pick norton disk docter. run it. it should fix the corrupt files

How to Take Ownership of a File or Folder

Administrators have a lot of power on XP machines. One manifestation of that power is the ability to take ownership of files or folders on NTFS partitions that were created by other users. The owner of a file or folder can change its permissions, thus controlling who can and can't access it. Note that once you take ownership, though, you can't give it back without the other user knowing. Here's how to take ownership of an NTFS object in XP Pro:

1. Log on as Administrator.

2. First you need to turn off simple file sharing if it's on. To do that, click Start | My Computer. On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, then the View tab. Go to Advanced Settings and clear the box that says Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended). Click OK.

3. Now navigate to the folder you want to own, and right click it. Select Properties from the context menu.

4. Click the Security tab, click the Advanced button, and click the Owner tab.

5. In the Name list under "Change owner to," click Administrators. If you also want to take over ownership of everything within a folder, check the box that says Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.

6. Click OK. Remember that this only works on files and folders stored on NTFS partitions. Objects stored on FAT partitions don't have owners or file level permissions. You can't turn off simple file sharing in XP Home edition, but you can take ownership by booting into XP in Safe Mode as Administrator, and then following steps 3 through 6.


You did that?

This may seem stupid...but have you checked if they are somehow "hidden" or on a different folder. Only reasonable way they don't 'appear' any longer...
