    Hi Guys,

    Finally got my MacBook Pro.

    I downloaded a program via Rapidshare, its in 6 parts in rar files.

    When i had a windows machine i used winrar to extract the files, just right clicked on the first one and 'extract with winrar'. How do i do this on Mac OS?

    Help would be greatly appreciated guys.

    Thanks guys, also had a look around the net as well as posting here.

    Anyone heard of The Unarchiver?

    Unarchiver is best. I use it in all my deployments so users don't have to scratch their heads on any archive. It does them all.

    I just downloaded unarchiver for some .rar files I am working with. After extracting the files, they go into three folders and now I want to burn those to a dvd-r, but the disk utility won't make them an option to burn. What am I doing wrong?

    sorry for the newb question, but I have just discovered .rar and the extraction process, so I'm kinda giving myself a crash-course through it. Thanks in advance for the help.

    I think Disk Utility will only let you burn .DMG ? Never used it to burn a cd/dvd
    If you just want to burn files to a disk use Right Click(or Control Click) / Burn.....
    OR
    You can make a Burn folder under Finders / File, menu
