    First of all I apologise if this is in the wrong place.

    I recently downloaded a game (Which I also own the original to) and it came as as about 10 zipped files all containg a .bin and a .cue file in each.

    Now my problem is which do I burn to a disc with nero to allow me to play the actual game?

    Do I unzip them all and burn them to a disc or just the first?

    Thanks for your time and patience.

    Mmms.

    Burning PC Games...
    Open the NFO file with notepad...
    It's very important that you READ the NFO file. Most big Games require you to install then replace the .exe file with a cracked version located on the disc. But I'm not going to get deep into the subject, READ THE @$%^&! NFO FILE!

    Thanks for taking the time to answer and Im sure you get this a lot but I did read the guide and didnt see anything on what I am puzzled with.

    there are multiple (7) rar files each containing a cue and bin file.

    Do I burn all the bins to one disc?

    ok here's the entire process...

    *Extracting RAR files: source: http://gunit.punked.us/home.php

    1. You are gonna need a tool called WinRAR.
    Download it at http://www.rarsoft.com/rar/wrar320.exe
    2. OK, you open the .rar file or open any one of the rar files, then you extract it. Rar files vary in format, they can be .rar, .r01, .r02, .001, .002, and etc... -- What I do is usually extract the .rar file and if it doesn't exist, I open the last highest number rar file and extract that.
    3. This should extract 2 files for you. A .bin and .cue file. Once, you have your .bin and .cue file, you should delete those rar files now to free up some space.
    4. You basically burn from there because bin and cue files are image & cuesheet files thats packed up and ready for burning.
    5. Open up Nero's Burning ROM, and goto the option called Burn Image. If you are using a lower version of Nero, it should be under File.
    6. Just burn it and watch it. Note: Some DVD Players dont play burned CD's. Go check if your DVD played is listed at: http://www.dvdrhelp.com/dvdplayers.php NOTE: These instructions applies to VCD/SVCD/PC_GAMES/XXX

    What are NFO and SFV files?
    NFO files are release group notes, you generally open these up with notepad and you read it to find serial numbers as well. So it's sometimes important not to delete these. SFV files are just file checking files for CRC checking, meaning if you have a checking program, you can double check on file completion or check if the file is corrupt.

    How to watch the VCD/SVCD movies on your computer?
    Once you have extracted the rar files to .bin and .cue, you can use a program called VCDGEAR or ISOBuster to open up the .bin file and have it ready for extraction.

    VCDGEAR: http://www.vcdgear.com/files/vcdgear355.zip
    ISOBuster: http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=ISOBuster

    NOTE: On VCDGear, when you convert .bin to .mpg, you have to make sure you add .mpg at the end of the filename because it will just convert to file to THE_NAME without an extension so windows will be all confused.

    How to Play SVCD or M2V files on your computer?
    OK, SVCD and M2V files are a higher encoded video format which uses MPEG2. Windows Media Player does not come equipped with the correct codecs to play these formats. So what do you need to do? Well, You need to donwload a program called POWERDVD, it will install the MPEG2 codecs on your computer and then you will be able to watch the files on your computer.
