    hi

    I have a few gamecube isos, in rared files , but when i extract the .rar file (expecting an .iso of the game) it extracts another .rar file .

    So i then try to extract this .rar and i get an error saying no archives found.....WTF ?

    It does this with all the .rar files i have ( metroid prime , metroid prime 2 , and resident evil zero)

    Am i doing something wrong. With other games , ive always extracted the .rar and being given an image file , so im puzzled really wtf, how do i get the image?

    You're sure your not just getting a .iso file that you are trying to extract with winrar but should actually burn as an iso?

    yeh, winrar ascociates with .iso so it can make it look like a .rar file ...uncheck 'hide file extensons' in the folder option of windows, to see the extension

    hide file extensons. is already unchecked. the file has the 3 books stacked on top of each other ( winrar file) the file name is metroid prime 2 .iso but its a rar file (wierd).

    I tried renaming it to just metroid prime 2 and then tried extracting it but still the same error,

    as strange as it seems i burnt the rar to disk and it works.......

    but why is it not an iso image file ,

    the weird thing is my pc cant read the disk when i put it in but it can usually read whats on a gamecube game disk ,

    ohh well thanks anyway , at least it works

    it is an .iso you said it yourself

    if you don't want winrar to 'asociate' with .iso uncheck it in the winrar options page (ascociations tab)


    and yeh i know i probably can't spell 'asociate' [​IMG]

    Maybe because that's not a rar but an iso, you said it yourself...

    Yeah, for whatever reason WinRAR associates ISO files. It will extract them, but obviously ISO files are not for that purpose.

    well if this is the case why wouldnt win rar recognise my other wii and gamecube isos as winrar files , its only these particular few that have done this , i think its something to do with the way the person compressed the iso .
