    The file is packed in many rar files, right. If so I can't help you :) . But I can tell you that I tried Stuffit and it didn't work. I had to use Winrar on my Windows box.
    I might be wrong on the Stuffit theory though. I gave up after only one try.

    Try these guys if Stuffit won't work.

    Honestly I haven't tried this using files with .r00 .r01 extensions (personally havent seen them in that layout before), but you could try RAR Expander. It supports multi-archive files such as that and also can handle password protected ones as well.

    I mostly use the unrar binary through Terminal (you can get it at rarlabs.com) - Stuffit crashes for me sometimes too and RAR Expander doesn't let you paste passwords for any archives - the 3.6b3 through Terminal is faster too on bigger files it seems.
