    I am DL'ing a few discographies on demonoid.com, but they are .rar files. how do i change them to mp3? Isn't a .rar like a .zip? Do i need winrar?

    I believe rar is kinda like zip files.

    you need to download a rar program to decode them.

    No, go to http://www.winrar.com and download it.

    Windows does not have RAR file processing capability built into it.

    Cool, thanks. that just helped me get like 20 more albums. Damn, B thanks for letting me know about the BT. this is the coolest shit. I dont think I'll ever even used the old style P2P programs again. Just got Dodgeball, and I'm watching it right now, too.

    yeah i think i'm gonna buy it. the one i dl'ed has all the text in another language, but isn't subtitled. it's still annoying though, and i want to watch it in better quality, it gets on my nerves
