I don't know what applications join segmented files. Maybe Stuffit Deluxe or whatever you are using for a News Reader (such as MT-Newswatcher).

Once you have joined the segments so the video can be played on your Mac, drop it in the Toast video window with video DVD selected as the format. From there following the Toast Help instructions on making a video DVD.
I'm just a fellow Toast-user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may provide. And do let me know if your issue gets solved. Cheers from Eugene, Oregon!

Try Catenator, freebie. You can find it here:

It has been a while since I downloaded something that ended up as multiple files but I think you will find that one of the files has an ".rar" extension as opposed to a numerical one. I seem to remember that double-clicking on that then created the whole .avi file in the same folder.

The files he's talking about are not RARed, but segmented. So they need to be joined. There are more apps that will do this, but Catenator still works the best and is free to boot. Put the files together in a folder, select them all and drop the whole shebang on Catenator. That's all there is to it...

Thanks guys, Happy New Year


Seems i'm still having problems

I downloaded the Catenator prog and dragged the foleder into it. I saved it onto my desktop but none of the progs inc Quicktime, M player OSX, Imovie etc could open it. They all gave errors.

I also looked for a rar extension . There was one file- dl-b.rar but when I opened that it would not play in Divx or in Quicktime.

There is a preview file which ends.vob and plays fine in Quicktime

Hope to hear back soon. A bit frustrated by this



oh if it helps the sample vob file opens with OSX player not QT.

Install UnRarX. Open your .rar file in that app. It will find all segments and extract the content from it.

Thanks I found somthing called Mac Hacha that allowed me in unzip the compressed rar file.

I can now view the movie in MPlayer OSX but I still have the movie in 5 seperate vob files. I tried to use catanator to join them but it didn't seem to work.

How can I get the 5 seperate vob files into 1 so i can view the movie in one file?

Thanks for the help even though it ins't roxio related

Did you get any other files beside VOB files (.IFO, .BUP)? Were they in a VIDEO_TS folder? If so, it may be a ready-to-burn DVD.

In the Toast Video window choose DVD video from VIDEO_TS as the format. Select the VIDEO_TS folder you now have on your hard drive. Burn your DVD.

Not iDVD nor iMovie, If you are going to be doing a lot of this kind of stuff then it is going to be easier to use Toast.

But you can still burn a DVD using free tools, you need "ffmpegX".

They will be able you talk you through it.
