corrupted rar file. How to use anyway???

Hi,
I have a rar of which winrar says that the CRC is wrong, and the file is corrupted.
It is a huge videofile however, so I don't really care if there's a small part in it which isn't good.
I allready tried to "keep broken files" when I extract, and I allready tried to repair the file.
It doens't works.
What can I do to extract the (corrupted) data anyway??

Thanks in advance.

pimpernel,
Is this a downloaded video file? It may just be due to a bad download of the file. For repairing steps, see here:

Are you running a version 2.* of WinRAR?

Version 3.* compressions seem to produce those errors when using a version 2.* of WinRAR.
Moving to v3.* will cure the CRC error reports.

Download the latest version of WinRAR by www.rarlabs.com and run it...If it doesnt work then try the fix..I know you've tried it already. But the new version might make a difference...If that doesn't work then there is no hope except for downloading the file again...Sorry, but thats the way it has to be..I've experienced it alot of times!
Chill...
Good Luck!

It seems to be able to repair it, teuntje (demo version can only say if it will repair it or not)...
I'll buy the full version.

Thx all.
