    HI there, I have been downloading a lot of movies that are in "Xvid". I am pretty clueless about this format and I have installed the codec and everything. But when I download these movies, I open the folder and I just see like 30 different files and none of them can be opened. Can someone please help me out? I sure would appreciate some step by steps on what to do, I know I'm an idiot. Thanks guys !!!!!

    Can you list the filename with the extension, that is the part after the "."? It could be a rar archive splitted in many parts.

    macpardeluxe. If he grabs the par files, he can put any corrupted ones back together. And ya, stop stealing movies.

    haha, still lost. I only download the movies that I have already purchased, I find it easier to download em then rip them because I buy them mostly on blu- ray. MOST of the movies I download are movies that you cant find anywhere else, like weird 80's horror movies that they don't make or you cant find on dvd.
