    Do you own the original, or did you download it?

    If you own the original
    1)Run DVD Decrypter
    2)Select Mode-->Iso-->Read to create the iso file.
    3)Select Mode-->Iso-->Write to burn the iso file.

    OR

    If you downloaded the game
    1)Install WinRAR
    2)Take the first file in the archive. It should be named part1.rar or .r00. Right click on it and select extract here. This will extract the iso file and save it to your hard drive.
    3)Run DVD Decrypter
    4)Select Mode-->Iso-->Write to burn the iso file.

    Thanks for the reply.but..

    I own the game and when I put dvd decrypter in iso read it works then when i go to iso write it shows the file in win rar. I extract it to a folder san andras that I made but it shows no iso file. Would the file to burn be the slus file?

    Thanks again,

    lol, i signed up just to answer your question :p

    It seems like your Winrar has associated itself with your .iso files. In other words, it thinks that you should extract the contents of the .iso file (which is not what you want to do).

    Dont extract the .iso file. Just burn it directly to the disk with dvd decrypter.

    Hope this helps

    Ok, I figured it out.. The problem was and still is the file associates itself with winrar. there was a file with a pic of a disk. I renamed it with iso extention ".iso". now when I open it in dvd decrypter it shows up like this. before and after renaming it with the iso extention.

    before: san andras winrar archive
    after: san andras.iso.ISO

    But it will be a perfect back-up.

    Thanks for the help guys...
