    I Have a Pretty n00bish Question...*sigh*

    Well, I kind of know, but I want some valification on my quandary's. So, I want to download a computer game off a torrent site, or whatever, it will be in ISO form...I think, so do I need to by a blank disk to copy and paste it on so it will work? I think that's how it goes, but I'm not totally sure. Need some help, thank chu.

    Not really. You can try it but i doubt it would work. There are a few different programmes you can use. I use PowerISO. If you can, use CD-R instead of DVD-R/RW.

    That works 100% for PC Games. I've only ever tried any other console once & it kinda worked.

    i think an old ps2 that opens at the top plays burnt ps2 games right outta the box so thats kinda cool, also dreamcasts will do that also.

    i used to have a dreamcast i found in an empty apartment next to mine with a burnt disk in it of an emulator and all regular nintendo games on it, it was sweet.

    as for the newerd systems im almost positive u need a mod chip and all that bologna.

    Yea, even if I got a mod chip...I wouldn't have a clue as of how to install it, I'd probably break my PS3.

    Yea, I would never send it to someone unless I knew them in real life.

    First off. What the hell is a "Valification" lol I think you just want answers.

    An ISO or *.iso file is just an image of a disk. You can just burn it to a CD/DVD but you need a program such as IMGburn*, Nero, Alcohol, Sonic, Roxio, etc., you either open up a 'virtual CD' and access it via a drive letter or you burn it to a CD using one of those applications, then install it from there.(I've answered this question way too many times for my own good.)

    Here are some links:
    ImgBurn*
    Nero
    Alcohol 120
    Sonic
    Roxio

    Alternatively you can just mount the image and play it from there using Daemon Tools*

    Link:
    Daemon Tools*

    Overall I'd suggest downloading Daemon Tools and mounting the image. Make sure the PC Game works before burning it. Then burning it to a DVD.
