RAR is a compressed archive format similar to ZIP - the sound/video files are inside the archive and must be extracted before you can play them the usual way.

On Windows systems, I think Winzip can uncompress most RAR files without trouble, just as if they were ordinary zipfiles.

Anyway, the best option is to download and install WinRar from[http://www.rarlab.com/] - they also have versions of the software for MacOs and Linux.

EDIT: thanks, SMITTY, for reminding me how verbose I am :-)))))

It always amazes me when people post on a forum asking about what to do with files like this. And yet, it's a lot faster for them to just type in a search that will give them all the information they'd need to get what they want!

Peace,
Adam.
