    Hey guys

    I have an iso file which I would like to split into different files that I can burn on separate disks. I used a program called Split & Concat to split the iso file into separate files. I then click on the first file called something.001 and extract it with UnRarX and i says " something.001 is not an RAR file.

    Can someone help me?

    Thanks

    use "cat" from within Terminal.app

    Code:
    cd [FOLDER WHERE SPLIT FILES ARE]
    cat something.001 something.002 something.003 > something.iso

    Do you have to type of the directory of the file?

    Can you give me an example if the folder is on the desktop?

    When you get to the part where you have to type the file names drage the files into the terminal. The terminal will then type the names for you. this works for all commands. the "drop" operation types the name of the object being dropped.

    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop
    cat [DRAG FILES] > output.iso
    
    [DRAG FILES] means use the tip ChrisA mentions, but be sure it gets them in the right order when you drag multiple files!
