    It depends on which game it is. If the game was originally on a CD (blue-bottomed PS2 game), (or it's a stripped down DVD you DLed) then you would burn the ISO on a CD. If it was originally a DVD (silver-bottomed, like most) then you need to burn it to a DVD+R or DVD-R. After you burn the ISO it should have a SYSTEM file and a few other files when you pop it in your PC DVD drive. (assuming you have one). Also, there is no way to MAKE a boot disc. You have to go buy a Swap Magic Disc or get a modchip. The easiest way.....which I did...is to buy Swap Magic, then just open up your PS2, and leave it open. No slide cards, mod chips, or any other stuff......as for .bin and .cue files.....bin and cue files are like ISOs.....I'm new to images and stuff, but you would burn them just like an ISO.....but if it's an image of a "boot disc" don't waste your time b/c that's a sure fire way to end up with a coaster........and if you are using Nero, go to the ISO tab (no, you don't do DATA DISC and just plop the ISO file on a CD/DVD), make sure you change the MODE to 2/XA......then in the bottom right corner go to OPEN and find your ISO, then burn away! Burn it at the slowest speed just to be safe.

    Good point. I forgot that. That's what I use for games too. I only use Nero for Apps and stuff....that or Alcohol 120%.
