    I just downloaded the Winrar program so that I could view a video of two files that end with "mpg.001" and "mpg.002".
    When I opened with Winrar, the first has a tiny Winzip icon next to it and the other has one of those Windows blank icons, when no program is associated with it. However, I did extract it to a file, and it is a Winrar file. When I double click it, it says that one of the files is missing date, or something to that effect.

    I have tried this with three different sets of files and I don't know how to fix it.

    Any ideas? I am unfamiliar with Winrar, but somewhat familiar with Winzip. I am running WinXP.

    Thanks!

    Error: I said when I double click it, one of the files is missing "date". I meant "data". THanks...

    They did not have a .rar extension?

    I use this freeware zipper, ZipGenius , works well with .rar files.

    I will try it. Thanks! When I have the files, say, "movie.mpg.001" and "movie.mpg.002", how do I use them? Do I copy and drag into the program, or join them together, or " save as "? In other words, how do they work with the program to make a regular "mpg" file? Thank you.
