    This has happened to me on three different RAR files. I start extract it and it tells me one or more of the volumes are corrupt. I try to extract it again, and it tells me different volumes are corrupt. Could this be a software thing? Not sure where to look for this.

    I've had this happen to me as well...especially on larger files. It seems .rar files are easily corruptible.

    Sounds exactly like a RAM issue I had in the past. Once of them was borked and was causing all sorts of shit when extracting, burning, etc etc.

    Do the memtest.

    Where did you get the rar's from?
    Do you need a set of Par files to rebuild the Rar's?

    That may be the problem if it was the same rar having the issue each time, but he said it changed.

    Did these rar's come with an SFV file?

    If not google "Brad Smith SFV Checker" and use that.

    memtest ran for 6 hours last night. Zero errors. I do not believe they came with an SFV file. But I will look into it.
