    Hey, tried burning gta San Andreas and it wouldnt burn, after wasting like 8 discs, decided that id download it to see if it would work any better.

    I downloaded it, opened the rar file and all it extracted was an MDF file, does anyone know how to burn these???

    Cheers

    You can use Alcohol 120% to burn the .mdf file, or you can use MagicIso to convert the .mdf file to .iso and then burn with DVD Decrypter.

    I'm using the full version of MagicISO, I don't think the trial version will convert or not.

    1)Run MagicISO
    2)Select Tools-->Any Format to ISO...
    3)The source file is the .mdf file
    4)The output file is iso file that will be created.
    5)Click convert

    You can burn a .mdf file using DVD Decryptor as well.

    Incorrect datatrek

    DVD Decrypter supports these images:

    .bin
    .cdr
    .dvd
    .gi
    .img
    .iso
    .lst
    .mds
    .nrg
    .pdi
    .udi


    Mr.SoLja

    Please spellcheck before posting. It's hard to understand what you're asking. It's easier for people to help you when they know what you're asking.

    1)Run MagicISO
    2)Select Tools-->Any Format to ISO...
    3)The source file is the .mdf file. In this case, locate your downloaded san andreas .mdf file on your hard drive.
    4)The output file is the .iso file that will be created. Simply locate a folder on your hard drive where you want to save the .iso file. Name the .iso file anything you want. I suggest gta_sandreas.iso. Click save.

    5)Click convert

    i don't know....i downlaoded the file from paranoid of gta san andreas (he is on suprnova.org, elitewebt3). his is a iso image, and it works well. just burnt it and it played in my ps2. i used dvd decrypter to burn the file though.
