On http://www.dvdboard.de/forum/showthread.php?t=121319 are links to 19 RAR
archives, plus md5, plus a .sfv file that contains a list of the 19 files
with what looks like checksums, that I downloaded. I am instructed there
only in German, which I do not read nor speak, to use Windoz to reconstruct a
service DVD required to fix my DVD recorder. Using 'unrar -l *.rar' I am told
0 files (and only in volume 1). Using 'unrar -t *.rar' I am told
No files to extract. Using 'unrar -l pioneer_service.partNN.sfv' I am told
not RAR archive. Can anyone tell me how to extract an iso from these files
I believe there are 2 versions of unrar free and nonfree. the free ones
doesn't unrar all rar files, try and install the non free one
apt-cache search rar | grep unrar
unrar-free - Unarchiver for .rar files
unrar - Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version)
sfv is simple file verification, and has nothing to do with rar per se.
Normally the way to use a split rar like this is to do this:
rar x pioneer_service.part01.rar
This should extract any and all files from any number of archive parts.
It is remotely possible that the files where split and need to be joined,
although if that was the case the names would usually be something
like "pioneer_service.rar.01". To join files on Linux simply do this:
cat file1 file2 file3 > final_file_name
But as I said, I do not think that is the case here. If rar does not work
it is possible that one or more of the files you downloaded got corrupted,
and may need to be re-downloaded. You can use md5sum to check the
files manually, or install cksfv and use it with the sfv file.
