    You need to unzip the file. Rar files are basically a container used to compact songs together, which means a smaller file size to download. Right Click the file you downloaded (the rar file) and click the option 'Unzip" or 'Extract'. This should release all the songs you downloaded in the same folder as the rar file.

    Hopefully that made sense, I am not a very good explainer. If you have any troubles just ask and I will try to help.

    Edit: Forgot to mention, if you don't have a program called winRAR, you will probably have trouble unzipping it.

    http://www.win-rar.com/download.html

    There is a link to the site you can download it from, if you just have a standard windows XP system, just click the 32 bit download.

    Once you have installed it, you should get a pop up from time to time saying do you want to buy this program or still use the trial, just use the trial. Don't pay for it lol (obvious but meh)
