Alright so heres the deal... I;ve looked all over for answers and I've gotten some but nothing I understand... even though I'm pretty computer savvy.

So I downloaded a game in .rar format and in there contained an ISO file. This was my first time coming across one so I looked it up and I understand its supposed to be the image of the disk in a downloadable format, and you can run it from your comter and it'll think its coming off of a disk.

So I downloaded Undisker which was an ISO extracter and extracted the setup.exe file. I installed it on my computer and it was going alright, I had the CD key and all of that. When I went to start the game, it asked me to insert the game disk, which I didn't have obviously.

So my idea was to burn the contents of the ISO filed onto a disk and put it in my computer when it asked for it. That didn't work. Then I tried burning just the ISO file onto the disk as a whol. That didn't work.

I've tried DAEMON manager and Nero but I'm not sure as to exactly what to do to make this work. I've been trying for 2 days.

Can someone help me out please?

This is probably because the disk is copy protected, meaning that you need a crack to make the game run. This sounds a little bit like warez to me, though. Which game are you talking about?

Well there you go then, it's clearly warez. Just buy the damn game, it's worth it.

If it wasn't obvious enough, closed for WAREZ talk.
