    In order to accomplish what you wish you will find yourself performing this task with virtually every game you get. This is the most basic of tasks and I would strongly suggest that you read the documentation that comes with WinRAR and learn that program inside-out. When you open a file with WinRAR there are icons at the top for performing these basic tasks.

    I think you mean the write speed, set the write speed to 1x if your using dvd-r or I think 2.4 if your using dvd+r basically set the write speed as slow as possible

    Flyersman -- "since idont no how to do this can isend someone the file and the send me back the iso".

    A .iso file of a PS2 DVD can be as high as ~4.5GB... I doubt anyone is going to want to transfer that much data simply because you can't extract an archive on your own.

    If you have a .rar archive that contains a compressed .iso file, all you have to do is extract the archive using WinRAR. If the archive does indeed contain a .iso file, extracting the archive will give you that .iso file and perhaps a few .txt files. Hence it should be easy to recognize what file is the .iso file.

    If you are having problems with WinRAR, I recommend using an online FAQ.
