Split .rar file

I recently downloaded a large torrent that ended up consisting of 2 .rar type files. Roughly 1.7 gig each, they're labeled as .part1 and .part2.

I've been trying to extract them, but it gets to about 56% and asks for part 2. No big deal...navigate to file 2...it doesn't recognize it as there. I'm thinking I should burn it to a dvd...but the replacement drive I put in only reads cds. -.- Any ideas?

sorry torrents, according to most people depict warez, and such discussion is not allowed.

however, i'll let you know that burning a disc is just a waste as if it isnt being read where it is now, it wont read on the disc.

Discussion of legal activity is allowed. Torrents are not illegal.
Many free, opensource, non copyrighted material is available.


The rar files are a split archive. Even if you burn the to DVD you will still have a split archive that needs to be joined and extracted.

If you did download a legal torrent then ask the source about the problem. It may be that your source files are corrupt.
