Unrar.dll

I need unrar.dll for loading CD's in .rar archives. I've tried 2 different ones, but one doesn't work and the other hangs WinUAE.

Can some kind sole drop me a PM pointing to the correct unrar.dll to use?

why would you leave cd images in archives?
if i rar or 7z cd images, archive gets even bigger than image file itsself...

rar is not that good choice because whole archive needs to be unpacked (=freezes) before emulation can continue. ZIP CD image only unpacks data track, other tracks are on-demand unpacked.

CHD is the only CD compression method that can work in real time.

You must be doing something wrong there. All my archives are at least 1mb smaller.

@Toni

Thanks for the info. I might try to convert all the .rar files.
