Hi. I'm hoping someone could help me here. I have recently signed up to 'Newsrazor' and use 'Altbinz' as a download manager. I understand Winrar and Par2 extraction programs but am having difficaulty using 'Binsearch'.
Once I locate a file to download it may say something like: Test Drive Unlimited - Vitality [58/97] - Test drive unlimited pc DvD.part01.rar yEnc. I assume there should be 97 rar files but often alot are not there no matter even if I search for them one by one. Also there are several PAR2 files, example: Test Drive Unlimited - Vitality [88/97] - Test drive unlimited pc DvD.vol108+33.PAR2 yEnc .
Altbinz automatically pauses these, why? Also do I need to download the PAR2 files if I get all the RAR's?
I have looked for a tutorial on downloading with newsreaders but can find little. I have a good knowledge of computers and operating systems but am new to newsreaders. If anyone can point me in the right direction or to a tutorial I'd be greatfull, Thanks.
