    I'm pretty sure you have to use a program like Newsleecher or Grab It

    yes you can use free programmes to download from newgroups. As long as your internet provider is supported. I use Grabit.

    Alright, I am a Usenetserver subscriber here's how it works:

    I am assuming you are looking for Wii ISOs. First, go to GBATemp's release list for Wii ISOs. Find the file name of the ISO. Enter that filename into Usenetserver's very elusive search engine tool. When it finds results, save them all into an NZB. NZB will act as a guide so you don't have to download billions of headers just to find one file.

    Double click the NZB and it will boot up your Newsgroup Browser (I use NewsBin Pro if you're wondering). You MUST download each portion of the RAR files, also, you may want to download the par files too. They are parity files, as per my experience, 40% of my Wii ISO downloads fail because they are missing 3-4 bytes at the end of each archive. Use parity files if this happens. Its a lifesaver. You can literally rebuild files that have completely gone missing out of thin air with these par files.

    QuickPAR is a good program.

    If you extract all the RAR files and get no error messages, then you'll have a working ISO [​IMG]

    There's no point downloading the bigger par2 files until you've downloaded all the rars and checked the files. Newsleecher has an option to automatically pause the bigger par2 files but not the smallest (empty) one. What you should do, is download all the rars plus the empty par2 file, run the par2 file, and that'll tell you if it's all good or if it needs more parts, at which stage you'd download some of the other par2s for repair (see that slyck guide for more info).

    Once the files have been verified with the par2, they're all good, so your ISO will be fine [​IMG]

    what you need:
    news program that supports .nzb ( you got newsleecher)
    binsearch.info to search for stuff and generate nzb (associate nzb w/ newsleecher)
    quickpar to check for file completeness. do so by downloading one of the small .par/.par2 files e.g namexxxxyyyyzzzz.par2, if corrupt/uncompleted it will tell you number of blocks(##) you need. download par files until you sufficient blocks. e.g namexxxxyyyyzzzz.volAAA+###.par2 ###=blocks
    repair
    then use 7zip/winrar to extract and it should work just fine.

    @mslugx
    the free ones suck. got like a day retention and limit it gigs. very hard to get what you want. go pay, spend 3bucks for 3 days. or go one month of unlimited. if you got slow broad band aka under 4mbit, go for the month.

    @iza
    do bother using headers and groups. got to www.binsearch.info
    it will search through all the groups. saves you a lot of bandwidth from downloading (EDIT: all the headers from a specific group.)
    here is what you wanted

    Also http://www.binsearch.info/?q=su-wkoropal&m...v_age=&server=2
    Binsearch is great, you just gotta remember to search in the most popular groups AND other groups.
