    I have 14 .rar files that should extract into an .iso image, but I can't get them to extract together. Each one gets extracted separately.

    Iv tried BetterZip, Unarchiver, and Stuffit.

    What files do you get from each .rar?

    Do they have a .part extension as well as .rar?

    You could also try UnRarX.

    I'm not totally sure, but it looks like whoever made the torrent screwed it up. If there's a .iso file inside, there should be a single .iso file after expansion, not a whole bunch of files.

    I'll see if I can think of anything else, but that's it for the moment.

    Yeah. I googled a bit and one person was saying some people don't understand how .rars work and just chunk them into different parts which doesn't work.

    Some guy had a similar problem(on windows) and said he had to "/b copy" them together or something..

    Try Joining them

    You could combine all the rar into one single rar file using machacha and then extract them.

    What you could do is change the file name to .001, .002,.003.....014. Now using machacha you can join the files into a single rar file. You can then try extracting them.

    This might work.

    Just plain ".001" or should I leave part of the file name? Should I have the ".001" after .rar or before?

    Have you tried Zipeg? It sometimes succeeds where other programs fail.
    In fact it is my default unrar program nowadays.
    Its free and small.
    Zipeg…
