Ok, I downloaded a Rosetta Stone torrent. It downloaded as an ISO file, so I used MagicDisc to mount it to a drive. Now I can open the file folder, which shows the following four folders:

Data
Documentation
Speech
Languages


The Documentation folder has an adobe file, which just outlines what the course content is. Speech is a notepad document which is unintelligible. The folder marked Data is full of .rsd files, and Speech has one single .rsd file.

Can someone help me navigate through this to actually run the program? Or do I need to download a different torrent?

Sounds like its not a program install disc but a disc that has all the other **** on it. Do a search of the iso for file types. It might be hidden. Was there an instruction .txt or .nsf file?

Which torrent did you download?

There might be an auto-run option as well.

View the virtual drive under "my computer" (no idea if you're using one of those gay white computers), right click .. and hope there is an "Open Auto-Play" option.

I'm on a windows, but when I do Open Autoplay, it just opens up the folder of the files, not an application.

Sounds like I need to just d/l a better torrent. I found this one on kickasstorrents.

If somebody would teach me how to learn, it'd certainly make it easier.

It's a possibility that you get the language(s) pack, but not the application disc. You can also check where you downloaded the torrent file, probably they have discussion about installation.

It's French. There was no discussion on the site, which kinda bugged me in the first place. I'll just try to download the Rosetta Stone application. Or Pimsleur. I think ModMatt likes that one better too.
