Question/Problems with burning a DVD

  1. I recently downloaded a rip of a DVD and it came in the form of multiple files with odd extensions (e.g. filename.dvd.r44 with ascending numbers) along with a .NFO file and some others. I've seen this format before (when I noobishly tried to copy and paste from a DVD movie) but I am not sure how to burn it to a DVD. Can I just use alcohol 120 to make an ISO of the files? Do they need to be in a special folder? Also, the DVD has to be bootable, so is there anything special I have to do?

    the files are a RAR set and need to be unrar'd with winrar, once done you will have 1 file usually an ISO that can then be mounted in alcohol or burnt to disk.

    You can open the NFO file with Notepad and read it
    Or download an NFO Reader program (most are free)

    Inside the NFO there may be steps to follow

    But basically you unzip the first rar file r01
    Which will unrar, all the archives at the same time
