    1.How do i change a DVD=RW to a dvd rom?
    2. I recently downloaded a game that came in 7 parts all compressed of course.
    My question is do i extract them all to a single folder to create the Iso or not and if not how do I do it?

    getting blazed
    1. use imgburn it should do it for you (imgburn is free)
    2. just use winrar or winzip or whatever you got to unpack a rar or zip file

    are you sure it are Isos?
    it should be .r00 and r01 and so on (or somthing like it). Place all of them in one folder.
    Open the first file (usually .rar, .r00 or .r01) and extract the file in it to somewhere. It will automatically combine them

    just click on the last rar file and it will automatically assemble the ISO.
    it will always be the last file, in your case the number 7 file, or, in some instances, the file ending in rar, no number with it.
    I prefer winrar, its free, google it, and most games are broken into rar files anyways.
    make sure ALL of the rar files are in the same folder (desktop, my documents, my downloads, etc, or it won't assemble the ISO if a file is elsewhere).
    once the ISO is done assembling, you can then send those rar files to the trash, you'll never use them again.
    Then, use blank DVD-R's NOT RW's NOT DVD+R's, some +R's work, most dont.

    It sounds like operator error, bud. The .rar files are tagged to run sequentially to create one file. Any program or process mentioned already in the thread is the right way to do it. Just about every archive utility knows what to do with sequential rar files. A better question would be.. "Hi, I'm pirating games, how do I get it working!?" -- perhaps your source for the files is no good?

    All in all, the correct size for a Wii ISO is 4,699,979,776 bytes (or 4.37 gigs.) If its not that size, its not fully assembled. Saving the .rar format is probably a good idea if you want to keep the ISO, but save space since they're usually scrubbed for compression.

    The depths of HELL
    Or you could just right click on the last .rar file in the folder, rightclick and then select extract here. Works for me everytime.
