    no one will help you on this forum man, we only talk about burning original copies that we own, of course.

    you need to extract the rar file
    use winrar.
    right click on rar 001.
    extract it
    then see what you have
    it should give you an iso or bin/cue etc
    then burn it

    you dont extract them all,just one
    try the first one....001
    it will give you one bin/cue file
    thats the whole game
    dont worry about the other rar files
    then just burn the bin file with dvd decrypter

    RAR files are basically 1 or 2 files that are broken up in to mulitple smaller files for compression, and ease of transfer.

    What you want to do, using WinRAR, is Open the file named ***.RAR. Extract that. It will go through all the other ***.r00, r01, r02, etc...

    When you're done, you should just have 1 bin, and 1 cue file. Unless it's multiple dics, in which case each pair of bin/cue files represents 1 disc.

    Once you have your Bin/Cue files, using whatever burning program you're comfortable with, select the ***.cue file, and burn that as an Image.

    So basically you will put all those rar files together and get one or two bigger files to burn. So 40MB multiplied by the 43 rar files.

    Heh, just trying to help. Some people have a lot of trouble I guess...I love having an easy time with computers, as it saves me a lot of headache.

    I remember when I was younger, and didn't know anything. Boy did my neighbour hate us, having to come over every other week to fix our computer.

    what do you mean you mount the image??
    people who upload onto the internet do this to make he file smaller
    iso's are compacted into a RAR file,this means a smaller download

    you need to unrar it to give you the true value

    Mount the image means to use a virtual drive. A program like DaemonTools or ImageDrive. It creates a fake CD/DVD drive on your computer, and using their software you can open up ISO or Bin/Cue files as if they were actually already burnt to a disc. It's a great way to see if an ISO has the proper files before burning it.

    When it comes to PC software, that's all I ever do. I haven't burn a PC game in ages. I just mount the ISO, install and play. :)

    yes,my bad for not explaining myself,i know what mounting the image is,
    just want to know why you would want to do that?

    I did it to see if it was actually the game because the image is only 800mb and when i mount it it shows up on the virtual drive as being 4gb

    cool,no probs,
    but like i said,it will show up like that because they are compressed,
    when u extract it,which i guess you have done by now,the image will be like u say around 4 gb's

    hi:

    i downloaded midnight club 3 and enthusia professinoal racing, and i extracted the .rar file. and inside that .rar file, there contains another .rar file to extract. i.e, compressing it again in a already compresssed file if you know what i mean -_-..anyway, inside that .rar file contains the ACTUAL files of the game not the iso/cue, which i usually get. so how do i burn this game (do i have to rebuild, i duno how to do that), or do i have to make it an iso then burn it.

    any advice would be helpful.
