    i was having alot of trouble playing some .avi files that i have and so i searched around for different players and converters. i've come to the conclusion that the files are either mislabeled or corrupted in some way. the file names end with .avi.001 and .avi.002 and so on. if i click on properties they name the file type as "001 file". i'm thinking they must be just mislabled or something, i was wondering if you guys know how to fix this problem. do i just need to rename the files so they end with avi? any help would be appreciated.

    u need a program called hjsplit to "join" the files into one .avi, that's why they all have an extension such as .avi.001; .avi.002 & so on...

    i don't have all the files though. i think it's a total of ten and i only have the first three. is there any way of viewing them withought having to join them all? i'm not so interested in getting the complete thing but if that's what it takes then i'll download the rest. i'm getting these through sendspace and they take a while for each and i have to download them one by one.

    thanks for the response.
