Default Help wanted

Hi!

I know I shouldn't be whining about this, after getting everything for (almost) free, but I just don't get the ISO cellar. When I want to download a game I get a list of files and I don't know

1) which one(s) to download, and

2) what to do with them after downloading.

3) I have a "Disc emulator" program called Magic Disc that would be nice for me to use, but first I have to understand how to get an actual ISO file out of the Cellar...

I appreciate any help I can get!

There are several possibilities, depending how the image was created.
It's impossible to post them all in one post , so some general instructions:

Download all listed files, be sure to save them in the same folder.
(Avoid 'desktop', create a special folder for your downloads).
You will need an unarchiver, 7zip usually does a good job and is freeware.
http://www.7-zip.org/
When all your files are downloaded click on the first one, 7zip should open (if installed correctly) and will show the file that's in the archives, can be an *.ISO, *.BIN/CUE, ..... something.
Unzip in the SAME folder.( \ISO\ or something)

For Dosgames:
ISO and BIN/CUE images can be mounted directly in dosbox using imgmount ( ->dosbox readme)
Other (CCD....) can be mounted in magicdisk, then you can mount that virtual drive in dosbox as CDdrive D: ( -> dosbox readme)

Wingames:
Mount the image in magic disk, will behave as a real CDdrive.

As said those are general instructions, will suffice for 90% of the CD images.

If you need more specific help post in
Troubleshooting
After all, this sub is meant as help sub, and you will get faster help there.

[Edit]
Do NOT open the ISO files themselves (WinRAR, 7zip ... can open them files).
This would make them useless for use.
