    could anyone please tell me how to do the above?

    I have just got a r4i 3ds deluxe card which I have managed to set up ok ( I used to have a r4 card for ds but am very rusty)

    I am struggling to find roms to download that are in 1 complete file and instead have many parts that need putting together as one.

    I have looked into doing this and found a site saying that I can go into WinRAR, highlight all the rar files and click extract to make 1 file. I have tried this but there seem to be other parts of the file (ie r41 file) aswell as the rar files. do I highlight these aswell or just the rar files?


    thanks

    Simply open .rar file (not parts such as r41) and extract. No need to highlight all.

    If they are like .rar, .rar00, .rar01, etc you can just open the first one (.rar) and extract. WinRar will take care of the rest.

    And if there is no .rar extension on any of them, and it's just numbers like .001, .002, etc... You need to use something like HJSplit to join them.

    While the guy above me is right, I've only ever seen that once in my life (and solved it without any external programs using copy /b), and it's probably rare enough that you can just delete it and get the same rom from a different source. Also, for reference, 7zip can open these split rar files as well by just attempting to extract the single .rar file.

    Sometimes its possible to change the first file to .rar and then when it asks for the next file just choose whatever one is next in line.

    the easiest thing to do is to just select all the files via dragging the mouse and right clicking extract all

    all ya gotta do is right click any of the rars and select extract here... no need to highlight all of them.

    This is certainly not the place to ask this question.
