    I have all the files of a game that is now cracked so I can't use the disc any more. What program do I use that will let me drag and drop the files (in order) to create a .ISO so I can burn it to a DVD-R?

    Please help or refer me to someone who could guide me through this.

    Thanks, this is the most informative site I can find.

    Yeah I could find the exact order but then what do I do? Just drag and drop the files. And then what do I need to do?

    You could try using a program like Isopen (you can find it here : http://www.download.com/ISOpen/3000-2248-10282270.html?tag=lst-0-1 ). With that program you can compile files into an iso file (which is what you want to do in this case). I must warn you that I'm really not sure if it will work or not. You could also try to drag and drop them in the good order using a burning program like Nero.

    How do you make a ISO image in Nero by draging and dropping files to it?

    What program can you use to see the order of the PS2 games files?

    First, I have no idea of how you can see the exact order, you said you could find that. To make an iso in Nero open the Burning Rom section and press new compilation and you drop the files in the correct section, unfortunaly I doubt you can keep the same order when doing this if you save the compilation it will be saved a .nri file (which is a type of iso specific to Nero but I'm a couple of programs can read/convert these files. The best way would be to find a real image of the disc instead of its content because the structure is recorded in that file.

    Nero doesn't give you the amount of control you require when making an ISO to specify the order in which the files are burned. That's why the other progerams were recommended. Even then, the only way to really determine the correct order to burn the files in would be to have access to either the original disc which I assume you have or a working backup and in either case the easiest backup solution would be to simply just make a one to one backup of either one of those.
