    Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking on the forum for about a year on and off but seeing as I have myself a problem I thought I might as well register and but my query up here.

    Anyway, recently my brother sent me a burnt copy of Manhunt 2 for the PS2. You see, I got myself swapmagic 3.6 just for this game but I was disappointed as it didn't work. But I know why it didn't work, both my brother and I have no idea how to burn a PS2. I've seen plenty of guides online but it always mention the user having an ISO. I don't have an ISO. When my brother downloaded the game he simply unzipped the files and burnt them to a DVD-R. Below is a screenshot.

    Can anyone tell me how to take these files and burn them properly?.

    I honestly truly appreciate any feedback.

    Thank you very much.

    I am guessing you have made the classic mistake off unpacking the iso
    which means you probably unpacked it twice

    open winrar,and check whether you have winrar associated with iso
    options/settings/intergration-untick the iso tab,and click ok

    then go back to the original rar files,and extract it again
    start from rar 00,right click,and select "extract here"

    if you havent got those rar files anymore,you need to make an image from those game files you have there,and hope it works

    for this use imageburn

    mode/build
    on the right hand side - options/file system/iso 9660 + udf
    drop all the files into the box on the left hand side,then click build image
    burn the resulting iso

    Hi,

    Firstly, thanks for the reply. :)

    My brother has the files and he could send them down my way. But in an attempt to save him sending it in the post I'll try the second solution you posted. I actually have a program that compiles files into an ISO. It's called cdgenPS2. I assume that's the kind of program you're talking about?.

    Also, I hear a lot of talk about certain burners being better than others and it's quite confusing. Is imageburn highly recommended?.

    Thanks for your time!. :)

    (Edit)

    One more question. Would it be better to get that ISO using cdgenPS2 or by using imageburn to rip the ISO of my current DVD containing the files that were too far extracted?. The ISO ripped from the cd is 2.43 gb while the complied version is 2.40gb. :/

    thanks

    Dont really make any difference,you just need the files so you can make a proper iso using the correct setting (udf/iso)
    cant even guarantee it will work,you may need he proper file order
    someone here wil have it,i'm sure.
    imageburn is fine to use for both compiling and burning with

    That's grand. Sure I'll burn it and see how it goes. If all else fails I can get the original files and properly extract them.

    Thanks a bunch for your help!. :)

    Hold on! What DVD-R Media did you use?! Someone please tell me the media they used cause whatever I use fails. I haven't tried Tayo Yuden yet. That's the only one I haven't done yet. What do you guys suggest?

    No it's not the only one I meant that I used TDK and another level brand.
