File names - what the hell they are

Rar - Use Winrar or Rar to open www.rarlab.com(I think the link what it is) www.winrar.com
xxx.c00
xxx.c01
Winace or Ace, do a search for Winace.

someimage.nrg use Nero http://www.ahead.de/en/index.html#root

CCD,IMG, SUb - Use Clonecd http://elby.ch/english/products/clone_cd/index.html

Bin/Cue, You can use Fireburner, Cdrwin, and Cdmate

Iso - EZcd cremator. You can also use Winiso

something.zip use Winzip.

If there is anything I forgot please free feel to add.

It’s a better idea to use Nero to burn .Iso files in my opinion.

Got it from you, so you deserve the credits :wink:

thanx for the link!
But for burning any kind of file image, you can use Daemon tool, the virtual device! mount the image file (iso, nrg, ccd…) in daemon tools and to choose Cd burning on the fly, cd to cd!:slight_smile:

Anyone know anything more about extension “*.idx”? It is filling up “my documents” in its hundreds, and the extension website seems rather vague…?

Vobsub uses idx, it’s the control file for the .sub. But I doubt you’re unconsciously ripping DVD’s to your My documents folder…
Do you use ICQ or Outlook Express?

No vob ripping, no ICQ, no Outlook Express. Perhaps related to Trillian though? - I use Trillian to access my ICQ, will try uninstalling and see what happens.

Been using Outlook and Trillian etc but never had more than a few idx files on my hdd.

Been doing some searching and all i ve come up with is that idx files can be used by the following apps:

IDX Relational database index (Microsoft Fox Pro)
IDX Relational database index (Symantec Q&A)
IDX Microsoft Outlook Express file
IDX Index file (Microsoft Clip Gallery v. 1.x)
IDX Index (various)
IDX Corel QuickFinder Information

+plus some DVD ripping proggies and antivirus software.

Found this link also:

Are there any other file types in addition to the idx files that copuld help you recognize the program that needs them?

Thanks for your suggestions Hemispasm - I don’t use any of those programs. As long as it’s not related to Nero or Alcohol, no cdfreak need freak I guess.
I just delete them in their hundreds like a sort of insect infestation in the kitchen, and they keep coming back.
Nothing is not working because of deleting them. But then you could say that about a lot of things in Windows.

.idx files are usually part of Outlook express.

Do you use newsgroups??
Certain ng apps will use idx file also, such as Agent or Newsbin pro. Do a search for .idx and tell me where there are hiding at

Nero’s CD database (titles/artists/tracks) stores information in .idx files as well. In Nero, click “File”->“Preferences…”, and then select the “Database” tab and see whether or not you have the “Use local Nero CD database” enabled (check mark in “Program database path:” or “User database path”) and, if so, if the paths point to your My Documents folder where you are seeing all the files.

That must be it.
I knew I could rely on cdfreaks to sort it out.

.DMF
"Delusion/XTracker Digital Music File "
“DMF = Delusion : Music format (Delusion Digital Music File)” (http://www.icdatamaster.com/d.html)

What the hell kind of audio format is this? Am I being ignorant? enlighten me please!:bow:

(Downloaded free tunes from mp3.com, got this format) :Z

The bundled software, B’s CLiP, that came with my Sony CRX 225E
burns a perfect .ISO every time. The interface is a doddle to use and I’ve not made a coaster to date. More than can be said for Nero 6.

I think I’ll leave DVD burning till I take out a second mortgage

Myn’

I don’t know what they are. but I am human…I think.

I am human and i need to be loved.

IMHO…
