    After much aggravation, futile attempts and exhaustive online research, I finally decided that I needed to post a rough How 2.0 on UnRarX.

    Here is my successful attempt. I hope that it will help others frustrated users to finally get some use out of the .rar archive system.


    1. Download and install UnRarX.
    2. Open UnRarX.
    3. Drag and drop .rar file into the UnRarX window
    4. Depending on the size of the file you may find the following types of files: .nfo, .r00, .r01, .r02, .rar, .sfv, .txt
    5. Drag and drop the new .rar file into the UnRarX window
    6. This may take a while but the following files will appear: .bin, .cue
    7. Open the .cue file (on my OSX it opened Toast Titanium - otherwise it may open up your disk burning software)
    8. I dragged the .bin file into toast as well, but after understanding the process, it might not be necessary.
    9. Burn disc.
    10. Once disc is burned, eject it then put it back into your computer.
    11. Open the disc and presto, your files should be available for normal filing, copying, emailing, what ever your heart desires - legally!

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, I'm not quite sure what I'm doing and i have probably a not so smart question, but how do i install and launch UnRarX I've downloaded it and extracted the files but i don't know what to do next, it doesn't really give me any options, am i missing something?

    I'm not sure about what you mean. UnRarX's sole use is to open .rar files. If you have a .rar archive, first do a Get Info in Finder to make sure that UnRarX is the application set to open it (not a crucial step, since you could instead just drag-and-drop the .rar onto the UnRarX icon, but it's helpful). If UnRarX is the default application, just double-click the .rar file to open it

    I agree with Kye,

    I did the same, downloaded and extracted the files and nothing happens. When I double click on the file to open it it just extracts it again and doesn't actually let me read it. I don't see the point of this program.
