How to Download the Files from the Full Concerts - Splitter Thread

Warning: DO NOT change the file name or file format when saving the files to your hard drive.
You must download ALL of the parts (the last part contains the installer to combine the concert)
Open a new folder on your hard drive and download all the files for one concert into it.
Once you have all the parts, highlight them all, right click and extract all files.
A new 'Create' file icon will be displayed.
Double click and it will ask if you want to create the file. Click OK and eventually a message saying 'the file was created successfully' will appear.
A new combined file of the whole concert will now be in your folder.

There is an example for you to try in the first post of the Full Concerts - Splitter Thread

Problems

Note you can only download one file from any file hosting website at a time or you will get messages like 'download limit exceeded'. (unless you have premium accounts)

Some countries may get the following message when trying to download from Megaupload:
All download slots (200) assigned to your country (Peru) are in use.
Please try again later. "Sorry you will just have to wait till a slot becomes free again for you to use."

If you still experience problems or have any questions not answered here, please contact one of the Media Mods: Blu or Shadowiegirl.
