    i recently found a ps2 game in my computer. it is a torrent file, and has a winrar icon. the game is madden 07, btw. anyway, how can i put this onto a cd that works for ps2, and should it be a cdr or dvd? i have absolutely no idea what programs i need, and waht to do with the fully downloaded file. it is 2.4 gbs in size. can any one please walk me step by step as to how to do this? there are probably places where i can find this, but i dont really know where to look. a redirection to a link or guide would be very helpful. and please, use easy terminology, since my computer vocab is not up to par.

    Look within the very section you posted this thread. This section -- the PS2 DVD Backup Discussion -- has a sticky already dedicated to numerous, if not, dozens of commonly asked questions from users like you who are knew to this. It would be a lot easier if you proceeded there and look for the information yourself because the explanation is somewhat lengthy if you're new to the entire thing.

    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. See the sticky threads at the top of the PS2 DVD Backup forum if you need help in using these programs.

    Extracting RAR files w/ WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com)
    1. Right-click on first file in the sequence (ie. game.rar, game.part01.rar, game.r00, or game.001). From the right-click context menu, select WinRAR->Extract OR Extract to game\.

    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.

    Burning PS2 DVD Images w/ DVD Decrypter (http://www.dvddecrypter.org.uk)
    1. Insert quality blank DVD into drive
    2. Open DVD Decrypter
    3. Mode->ISO->Write
    4. Browse to image file
    5. Set Write Speed to 4x OR half the speed of the disc (16x -> 8x)
    6. Click on Hard Drive->DVD picture to begin burning

    Some type of modification is required to play PS2 backups, either a modchip, using a hard drive & HDLoader, or via swap method (Swap Magic / PS2 Independence Exploit).

    Magic keys are components with the purpose to block the lid sensors of a PSTwo (PS2 Slimline, SCPH-7000X) which will allow you to play your backup CDs and DVDs on your console by using Swap Magic 3.6 or similar.

    I think he pretty much spelled it out for you. You can get them all over but it depends where you live as to which staores are best.
