How do I extract miltuple rar files?


I installed rar from the rpm for Fedora. That appears to be correct but here is what I see after I run the unrar:
------------------------------------------
#rar x Lotr-Rotk-1.part01.rar

RAR 3.20 Copyright (c) 1993-2003 Eugene Roshal 15 May 2003
Shareware version Type RAR -? for help


Extracting from Lotr-Rotk-1.part01.rar

Creating Lotr-Rotk-1 OK
Extracting Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.cue OK
Extracting Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin
Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin - CRC failed
Unexpected end of archive

Extracting from Lotr-Rotk-1.part02.rar

Extracting Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin
Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin - CRC failed

Extracting from Lotr-Rotk-1.part03.rar

Extracting Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin
Lotr-Rotk-1/Lotr-Rotk-cd1.bin - CRC failed
-----------------------------------------------

It goes on and on for each part file that I have.

It created the folder and the cue file but it fails on the bin file.

What am I doing wrong? Please anyone!

your rar files are probably corrupt. this is common when downloading stuff off the internet that is not supposed to be there in the first place.

You can test rar by creating a rar archive and extracting it, I'm sure it's fine though, and the problem is with your files.
