What extension is the file? Hold down the 'Control' button and click on the file. In the menu go to 'Get Info'. One of the first things in the list under 'General' will be Type of File. What does that say?

It says "Kind: Divx converter" I tried to use Divx and it wont work.

Hmmm I've never heard of that file type before. In that same window, what does it say up the very top? Should be the filename.something

The name of the icon thingy is "Ensiferum_-_Victoty_Songs__2007_.rar"

Nvm, I figured it out, had to use an updated Stuffit expander. Thanks for your help :)

Better than Stuffit Expander next time would be to use The Unarchiver. It supports RAR, which is a type of compressed archive like ZIP.

Stuffit supports RAR, split archives and other bits and pieces.
