    You extracted it one step to far.

    First you need to open winrar and go to OPTIONS/SETTINGS/FILE INTERGRATION and untick the ISO tab.

    You are then able to see your ISO file.
    The problem now is you have extracted it, so I hope you have your .rar files yet.

    If not you can use Nero if no separate file is over 2GB to burn it to DVD.

    open nero burning rom,and select udf/iso option and then select all files in that folder, copy to Compilation.
    Burn it at 4x speed on DVD-R media.

    I always assume when people post..
    You do have a modchip or Swap Magic to boot the backup? If not you will need to have your PS2 modded either by hardware, or software to play backups.

    that is true, i had this same problem.

    I Burned a couple of DVD's with different methods thinking that i did something wrong

    What i didn't knew is that you require a mod-chip, swap-magic etc. to make your back-ups work, so i modded my PS2 with a modbo chip and it all works fine for me now

    Once you download a game from a torrent, it will has extensions like part.00, or .00. You can open these files with WinRAR, no other software is needed to open these files. The two softwares you need for this, is WinRAR, and DVD Decrypter.

    DVD Decrypter, depending on your settings, can burn .bin, .img, .iso, .nrg, and .mdf. You need a DVD BURNER to burn these images, I also recommend that you buy either Maxell, Verbatim, or Taito Yuden [Japan], DVD-Rs or DVD+Rs to burn backups with.

    Depending on your burner, it supposts certain speeds. Burn each game at the lowest speed your burner supports, if your burner supports 2X, 4X, ad 8X, burn at 2X, 1X is too slow.

    You can also burn the DVD at half the maximum speed, for example if u buy verbatim with max writting speed of 16x, u can set the DVD Decrypter to burn it at 8x(half the maximum speed).

    It works fine for me.

    PS:Forgive the bad english, im still at school

    Is your DVD drive working do you know? Is it an older drive.

    This post here will tell you about modchips and what they can do.

    Depends where you live on how can you get one.

    An example of one is here, and scroll further down to see installation instructions.
    More info on using the Toxic OS For DMS4 Pro chips

    There are other tutorials there as well on it.

    You could also check out the memor32 card. Its just a memory card that enables you to play backups by using the firmware you install to it, and also to be able to boot Swap Magic for those backups that won't play with the memento firmware.
    You can read more about it in my blog in my profile.

    Hope that answers your questions.
