    Arrow How to extract map files?

    How to extract map files?

    A common problem with maps is the way it extracts the files...
    It sometimes creates the map folder INSIDE another folder named after the Rar File.
    This is commonly known as NESTING.

    In this example, the RAR file Australia_815.rar contains an Australia map.
    See how it extracts to a folder named Australia_815 (after the RAR file)
    Inside is the real map folder, named Australia.

    Copying across like this, it will still be possible to c rack the map (create DCT file)
    However, the device will not be able to see it & you will get No Maps error message.

    Map folders should always be placed on root (in the example here - this is drive F: )

    I need to get some post counts in!

    So, I use dlc/jDownloader combo for maps. Just need to be vigilant if p/w required.

    I never extract archive files from within Windows Explorer.
    In my mind, you have better control using a third party program like WinRAR.

    Winrar asks me for a password to unrar the France 885.4048 files. Can anyone advise as to where to request/find the password, please?

    explorer can not manage rar archives,
    WinRAR is the best solution for me and is easy to have free...
