    It is split archives. Probably WinRAR will be able to get the files you want.

    Open the NFO file (tda, MSInfo Document) in Notepad or Wordpad .. it must have the instructions.
    You can associate that extension to always open with notepad only.

    Also check .message and .debug file in notepad/wordpad

    I think they're HJSplit files .. Check this page for other possible split programs

    The .sfv file has CRC check values .. you can use QuickSFV to check if any of the part is missing/damaged.

    ok i joined the files using HJSPLIT but now i have a single 270 mb file named tda-sg9r and it just shows its type of file as "file" when i right click and see its properties. any idea what file is this and will this get further extracted or something ?? i think it should become a bootable iso or something not sure though.

    It shows the file type as FILE because there in no extension to the file name.
    Rename the file to <whatever>.iso or .nrg or .bin and open with a relevant software to see if it works.

    Even if you dont rename it ... opening it with relevant software would make it work. If it's actually a zip file, then it would open with WinRAR .. if it's actually a video, it would run in a player, etc
    You need to forcefully ask the software to open the file ... try this with different (possible) softwares .. try your luck.
    It could be an excutable too .. rename it to .exe to see !

    If you still dont know what it is .. you can try using TrID
    It's command prompt based utility to compare binary signatures of files to identify what they are.
    Try that.

    About NFO viewers ... Notepad usually works for me .. Never used anything else.
    Sorry cant help you there.
    But if you want .. mail me over that nfo file to my.alibi[at]gmail[dot]com .. I'll try whatever I can.
