The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
What the feck do I do with these?
I have the nzb file, and the site you gave me, but from then on im clueless??
Download one of these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Usenet_newsreaders which supports nzb files
The .nzb file, is like a parts list for the file you really want.
You need to have access to a newsgroup server to get the parts. I use Astraweb, with the $10/month unlimited download. This gives you access to a server that has all the parts for all the files you will (pretty much) ever look for. Think of Astraweb as like the RLC, but useful.
I then use Newsbin Pro to get the parts and reassemble them for me. Newsbin Pro needs to know the address of the newsgroup you are using (such as ssl-eu.astraweb.com).
Once you have got your newsgroup and download program set up (you only need to do this the once), double clicking the nzb file should start it all up, and d/l the file to your chosen location
Will this solve the probelm I had in the other thread, where the NDS files were corrupt?
I havent had any corrupt files so far, well none that couldn't be recovered using QuickPar, and there has only been 2 of those where QP was needed
To make use of NZB's.
Newsleecher or other such new group reader.
News group provider
Then you can open NZB's and the news group reader will download, repair and extract the file into its own directory wherever you have specified.
For newsgroups pick one with the option of SSL, its a sensible safeguard these days.
Remember torrents share files (illegal in UK law) but newsgroups don't, making copyrighted things downloaded a civil matter as its copyright breach and not distribution of copyrighted materials.
Both have their own penalties of course, user beware and all that.
Separate names with a comma.
