    Ok, the files are 100% but they aren't showing up as anything I can burn. They are "File" files... not .rar or .zip or .bin or .cue... not an ISO or w/e the nero files are. Not recognised by DVD decryptor or any other program I have (I use Alch 120% to burn games).

    How do I find out what these files are and burn them?

    Game = .Hack// GU Vol1 Rebirth
    Files = e-hackgu.001 to e-hackgu.064

    Folder also contains link to GamesTorrents which isn't english.

    They sound like rar files.

    Have you tried to unrar the files with winrar?

    they are NOT .rar files. I've already stated that. Rar files show up with book icons and end in .rar plus have the option to be uncompressed, and with games, also compiled into an ISO. These files only get the option to be compressed when I right click.

    Games are usually distributed in a number of RAR-archives (compressed files). This has been done to facilitate the actual download of the release. You only need to extract the first file in the sequence (usually named game.rar or game.r001/.001) and the rest of the files will be uncompressed automatically. If you need step-by-step instructions on how to extract RAR archives, see Hursty's WinRAR Guide. When the files have been extracted (uncompressed), a CD/DVD image file will be produced. The CD/DVD image is an exact digital replica of a CD/DVD, whereby all of the data is stored in one file to completely preserve the data structure and integrity of the CD/DVD. Some common disk image formats include: .BIN/.CUE, .IMG, .NRG, .MDF/.MDS, .CCD, and .IMG. These disk images can be burned using software such as Nero, Alcohol 120%, DVD Decrypter, and ImgBurn.

    NOTE: If the file has an extension of game.001 you will need to add it to WinRAR's user defined archive extensions so you can extract the files via the right-click context menu. To do this, open WinRAR->Options->Settings->Integration->Add .001 to the 'User defined archive extensions' box.

    Windows does not always show the appropriate icons for some files.

    If you are 100% confident they are not indeed RAR files, you can try using FileSJ or HJSplit to join the files together (however I must say it is a rarity when you have try this). From my experience this is a very common issue and if I would take a guess they ARE RAR files.

    yes, a above. Some files, even though they are rar files, do not have the stack of books icon you are use to seeing. Some look like a peice of paper (at least on mine) and you can not right click and choose extract with those. YOu have to open Winrar and manually load the first file and then extract it that way.
