Use stuffit expander and drag all three at the same time on it. You need to have stuffit 4.0 and dropstuff with expander enhancer also installed all shareware.

I tried that exact system and it failed.  I called Alladin and they told me it only works if certain programs make the split.  I tried on several MPEG files and this system did not work.  I used enhansed 4.0 with no success.

I would like another suggestion and thank you for your attempt!

Sometimes they are corrupted, therefore nothing would work.

Try opening the three files in Word, if they aren't too long! Use a monospaced font such as Courier (about 9 point). Strip off any additional stuff at the beginning and end of each file and try cutting and pasting 2 into 1, and 3 on the end of that so you join the files. Save that as text only, and drop that file on Stuffit Expander. You have to be careful how you do it.

This only works with some types of files but I have done it successfully many times.

PS If this works and you don't find Nate01's comment helpful, then allow me to submit this as an answer.

I tried on 2 different sets of mpegs and it worked on neither.  The MPEG files were not compressed because Sparkel played the first (1/2...) of both.  I am still lost.  I do appreciate your efforts.  I have tried several file combine programs with no success.  If you have any further suggestions please let me know.  Also, thanks for the offer but I really want to learn how do do it myself.  Teach a man to fish...
