    I'll help you if you help me :)

    Firstly i think what you are doing wrong is you are pressing 'X' instead of 'O' which in the MGS games is the confirm button (not 'X') - if thats not it then i apologise as i cant help you :(

    if that is what it is then you can help me now :)

    where did you download your copy and how did you burn it? - thats all i need to know

    (i already have a copy but can't seem to get it to work when i burn it :( - just wanted to see if the copy you have is the same as mine)

    what was your downloaded file like? was it just a DVD img or was it a lot of winrar files?

    If you have rar files, then you will need to build the ISO using CD/DVD Gen.

    thanks Ashman :) - sorry about all these questions but do you know where i can get a program that does that? (thats user friendly) i have come across a program called 'cd/dvd genearator' but it seems a little difficult to use and it keeps asking for the 'product code' for the DVD :(

    Look for one of the rar files that is named similar to this: SLUS.7545

    The file name without the period is actually the product code.

    Right ok! i am extracting it all again now so i will try this in a minute :)

    hopefully this will work :)

    usually the .rar files have a bin/cue file in and i know what to do with them but i was at a loss with this one :)

    *keeps fingers crossed*

    Just make sure that you drop the files in CD/DVD Gen in the same order that they were in WINRAR.

    right! i have found the product code but will i need to put stuff in the - producer name, Copyright holder, and the Volume identifier sections?

    and after that i assume i just place the files in to CD/DVD Generator? - but when you say same order do you mean Alphabetically (which is what they are in Winrar? - directorys first and then a .dat file a .elf file the product code file and a .cnf file)

    thanks so much for your help i have been clicking reset on the browser to see if anyone has replied nearly all day :(
