    I downloaded Bleach Blade Battlers 2 and its in numerous parts. I tried to highlight all the parts and choose "extract here" into one iso file and burned it to a DVD and that didnt work. I also just tried extracting the 1st file like some people said to do and that didnt work. Is there anything else I can do?

    If it has an .r00 extention, then the first file is the .rar I think, its been awhile. If there is no .rar file, then start with the .r00.
    I don't have any at the moment so can't remember which one is first. It's one or the other though.

    Did you try just the .rar file. You only need to right click and extract the one file, it will extract all the files then.

    You need to unassociate winrar with the .iso file extension.
    It's in settings.

    To deal with a broken stack of archive files do this..

    Make a folder called whatever..

    click the first rar file and extract to the folder..

    same with the second.. and when it says "overwrite?" chose yes..

    do this with all until you get to the end of the stack, and in the folder you should have one big file.. 2 to 4 gb's

    That is your .iso.. burn it as an image file with nero or whatever.

    OK...just need to make sure of this first so I dont waste another DVD. When you say the 1st file, do you mean the .rar file,.00 file, or .01 file?

    Usually the folder where you downloaded these files into, it is usually always the very first file in the folder at your top left, you just need to right click that file, and extract.
    Here is a link I found with pictures so you know what to do.

    I had the very same problem.. One day I decided to open my PS2 just for kicks. I cleaned the lens with a Q-Tip. It is now working flawlessly. Be very careful when you clean it..
