    I download alot of .rar files. I have been unsuccessful getting them to open on my ASUS tablet. I have tried WinRAR, ES File Manager, and AndroZip. I can get it to say it is unpacking the file and that it was successful but then I can't find any files it unpacked. HELP!!! TIA

    I've been using 7-Zip for dealing with .rar files on my PC for years and never had any problems. You can get it free at: Download

    ES File Explorer deals with rar fine, just be aware of where you extract the files to. i.e. use the extract here option to extract to the director the .rar file resides in.

    Thanks Spider, I have 7-zip on my PC and that is how I currently unzip and then connect my ASUS and move the files, but I really want to be able to do it directly on my tablet.

    Tom T, I tried ES File Explorer but when I say 'extract the files to' it does not give me any option of where to extract them to; and when I say 'extract here' it says it is unpacking and then says it was successful but there are no unzipped files when I go back to the file.


    I am very frustrated:(

    Odd, are you using the latest version of ES? I saw another app, think it was unRARpro, available for Android but I haven't tried it.

    The Market description of ES File Explorer says it will "Compress and Decompress ZIP files, Unpack RAR files", but if it doesn't work for you that's little consolation. The Market has a free version of the Unrar program that Tom T mentioned, it wouldn't cost anything to try it. https://market.android.com/details?...251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5uZXd6ZHJvaWQudW5yYXIiXQ..
