    I want to burn Dynasty warrior 4 xtreme legends onto a DVD disc, these are the files I have.

    DW4_XL.md0
    DW4_XL.md1
    DW4_XL.md2
    DW4_XL.md3
    DW4_XL.md4

    I know i'm supposed to use Alcohol but what is the procedure, these are the main files, there must be smaller file that connects them? What can I do with these files, can someone explain the procedure. I usually deal with ISO, this is the first time I got these extension codes.

    Thanks in advance

    Strange. Have you chacked if the file-size is between 1 and to about 4 GB? Otherwise you have downloaded a fake one. Try a simple splitt and join program(google it).

    I'd say its just under 2gb. Which is a normal size for PS2 games. I want to know for sure if I should join them I may not need to. You see I got a text file with it which said to use alcohol. I dont know the procedure thats the problem. I did a google on these file extensions, nothing!

    I was just wondering if anyone came across this or knows what to do.

    Is it possible to burn onto a disc without the need of the MDS, I assumed that the MDS would be a file which just instructs the software what actions to take, is there another way around it? I have all the major files.

    from what i understand,when you download games and unzip them,you should have everything you need.
    i dont download games so i dont have much experience in what you are trying to do.
    have you tried burning it with dvd decrypter.??

    you just select the mds file,all the other files you have will be linked togther.
    use the search engine on this forum site,it may be more helpful than i have been.
    to be honest i have never heard of "md"files
