  thumbscrew 19 May 13

Can anyone tell me (In the simplest possible terms) how to extract MP3 files from Winrar? Despite watching "Easy" Youtube tutorials and wading through impenetrable posts, I'm still failing with this alleged simple process!And what's with the password...nobody mentions that!!

rar files are files which contain one or several related files which are compressed to make the size smaller. The result of compressing results in a rar file termed an "archive". To get the original files you need to unrar the file using Winrar or Winzip or a similar program. Part of the unrar process is to ask for a password which is required only if the original archive was set to be password protected by the originator.

Install it and then you will be able to extract (unrar)the file to get at the mp3 files however you will need the password if it was originally password protected.

Winzip should work, if you have it.
