    just downloaded what appears to be Gears of War 2 NTSC for 360.
    I see in the rar 2 files, DVD and iso.
    Do I need the DVD in some way?

    .dvd contains the layerbreak. Without it you'd have to manually set it.

    Is that ok to burn?
    and how do I use the .DVD file when I burn the game with imgburn?

    Ok sry for double, I fixed what was wrong in the test before, now i wanna burn the game.
    I opened imgburn, selected the .dvd file, then before it starts, I get the pop window says :
    "Can't set the layer break burning position when burning on DVD-R DL media, do you want to continue".
    I thought .dvd file is meant to set the layer break, so, what should I do? I didnt let it continue, I wanna make sure I don't do mistakes.
    I'm using High Quality 'That's' japanese disc DVD-R DL, by Tayo Yuden, probably highest quality in the world, so I don't want to make mistakes.
    So then, should I let it contintue? or theres something wrong?

    It's nothing to do with it not reading -r. It's for the exact reason imgburn said. You can't set a custom layerbreak on them.

    No, no way to set it. If imgburn could do it, it would have when you loaded the .dvd.
