Help with "TDA" files needed
    #3747388 - 02/07/05 09:45 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I just downloaded a program using bittorrent and it came in a bunch of TDA files. I have winRAR and CDRwin but still can't figure out how to use these files. I guess I need to get them down to a bin and cue then burn to CD, but how? Here is a screenshot of what I am looking at....

Try opening "tda-app1.001" with winrar (www.winrar.com). Also try using notepad to open the .nfo file. Those usually have directions.

Does the fact that the kick ass asci drawings don't display correctly in notepad bother you?

"tda" is most likely the release group not a type of file.
read the nfo file...and see what it says.

Well, I opened the NFO in notebook and the installation notes were extremely vague. I opened the first tda file in winRAR and it came up with the bin file I was looking for. I am now burning it as a CD image image via CDRwin, hopefully as goes well. Thanks for the help!

It's more that a proper nfo viewer will associate .nfo files, as it should be.  Warez isn't the *only* place using nfo files and they don't *all* have ascii art :wink:
