    I have this certain game... I acquired, digitally. It happen to come in a folder which is divided to at least 41 different files that are named .R** (** represents numbers from 00-41). My question is if I highlight all of these files and, using Imgburn, I create these files into an image? And then burn said image?

    Get winrar or 7-zip. The files you got are in a compressed archive. You'll need to extract them and then burn the resulting extracted file using imgburn.

    The thing is, there are 41 different files. Do I extract each one of them?

    I think I got it. At the end of the 41 .r** files, there is a .RAR file. I currently extracting it. I believe that those .r** are parts of the main .RAR as the main .RAR was split into different files right?

    Correct. The .rar is the beginning of the archive and is then split into smaller parts to make it easier to download.

    .rXX are types of RAR files, often used for Games and Movies, just highlight all the files and extract them.

    It shouldn't really matter. I've seen some tests done where the slowest speed actually produces the worst burn quality. I guess it depends on the brand of disk and burner used. I just personally burn stuff at auto speed.
