    I have a PS2 sengoku basara game and the folder has 31 winzip files all named "wjr-sb2j" and 42 R47 files numbered from "wjr-sb2j.r30 ~~ wjr-sb2j.r71"

    when i unzip the files I notice that each winzip file has an ISO file thats at 4.65gigs. How do I get to burning this game if every file is over 4 gigs?

    I noticed another game I got is in the same file format. If I unzipped every file and threw it into burning the disc it would total way over 10Ogigs so I know somethings wrong, plus the R47 files all are 47MB each.

    Can someone help me?

    open your file with winrar then extract the iso . if over 4.7 gb you must rebuild the game

    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.

    thanks guys, so far i extracted the ISO file and managed to burn the ISO to a DVD-RW but it didn't work. I'm guessing I'm not supposed to use DVD-RW's so I purchased a DVD R+ disc.

    What I would like to know is am I missing a crucial step before burning? i.e. patching (which i don't understand when its necessary)

    burn it to a DVD R and it should work. the only way you need to rebuild the game if it is larger than 4.7 gb. and as for patching only if you wanted to change the region pal or ntsc :)
