How were you cooking them? They shouldn’t be boiled like wheat-based pasta. My usual method is to bring a pot of water to boil, remove it from the heat, add the noodles and let them sit in the water for 7 to 8 minutes, then drain.

By the way, if you’re looking for a tasty recipe in which to use the noodles, I made this last week and it was delicious: http://smittenkitchen.com/2012/06/cold-rice-noodles-with-peanut-lime-chicken/#more-8664

I am lazier than @hergreenapples, and I just fill a large bowl with hot tap water and let them soak (how long depends on how thick they are, I just keep an eye on them and poke them every once in awhile, but 20 mins usually). I also find they stay separated better if I toss them in a bit of oil immediately after draining them. 

Also, if I am going to add them to a stir fry, I keep them quite al dente in the water bath and finish the cooking in the pan so they absorb the stir-fry seasonings and don’t overcook.
