Yes, one-by-one seems to work fine for me too - thanks.
Now, on large pcap files one-by-one will be quite tedious.  Do you (or anyone) know what programs are out there to automate extraction of various files from a pcap?  I have used Network Miner and it works quite well on pcap files of moderate size.  Is this the best tool, or are there other alternatives out there?

Hi Jim,

In my experience you better save the items one by one (Save As in stead of
Save All).
Most of the times there are a lot of "/" or "?" and you can
not use these
for filenames.
