    This is to inform any of you on how to open certain file types on OS X. I will add this to my Problem Solving Thread.

    .Rar - UnRarX

    .daa - DAA Converter

    .zip - should open by double clicking. OS X has an unzip utility out of the box (at least 10.4+ does, perhaps lower versions may not)

    .sit - Stuffit Expander


    .r00
    .r01
    .r02 - these are parts of a RAR file. Select the main one (either 00, or filename.rar, and it should automatically open it)



    Is there anything not on this list? I did all the ones I could think of.

    this site lets you type in file extensions and tells you what apps typically use that extension, which should help you decide what app to use to open it....

    enjoy :p

    Nice contribution, SmurfBoxMasta

    Take a look at my problem solving thread (link in my signature below) and see if there is anything else you feel I should add.
