    Okay I download a file. Ends up giving me multiple files that I think are already decompressed?
    Because extensions are: .r01 .r02 etc. Like 20 of them.

    Do I compress them and burn? And if so, do I change the file extension to ISO for Burning? Btw mounting is a prob for me too, havent had success on that part. Tired of my games getting scratched up :( so much. && Last thing is Disk Utility Settings, such as Rapair, Convert, Save As New Image ( ALOT of settings there)

    Please Macccitymacers, help.

    Those files are part of a RAR archive and you need The Unarchiver or UnrarX to decompress them first. Either click on the .r01 or .rar file to decompress them with one of the applications I mentioned.

    Shaaa I had The Unarchiver just today and it would make a mess. It would switch their extensions and make copies if I clicked..

    I don't know why it would make a mess, I never had a problem with split archives with it.

    Anyway, if your files are looking like this:
    file01.r01
    file01.r02
    file01.r03
    file01.r04
    file01.r05
    file01.r06
    file01.r07​

    then click on the .r01 file.

    If your files are looking like this:
    file01.r01
    file01.r02
    file01.r03
    file01.r04
    file01.r05
    file01.r06
    file01.r07
    file01.rar

    then click on the .rar file.

    Where did you download the files then? And what should come out of it?
    Can you provide a link?
