    I've found Nero to work.

    The ccd is the image itself, the cue file tells the program how to burn the file.

    I though img was also the actual image, but I'm not so sure if you've got all 4 at once.

    i've burned the cue file using nero, it seems to work, but it wouldn't play. i'm guessing that the actual file is corrupted, not due to the burning
    what's the sub file for?

    i got isobuster, just download it actually.....how does it work??
    i think i got alcohol 120% too, just need to install it

    EDIT: i've burned it using Alcohol and found the problem......it seems that although my disc drive can burned it, it can't read it.....i'm not sure why.....i tested on my other computer which is new and the disc goes to autoplay automatically....so yeah...thats the next question...is there other way around other than getting a new disc drive?

    .... *blinkblink* wha?

    It burned it, but didn't read it? That's unusual. Well, if the other computer has no problem, it must be the drive. If you have the full version of nero, go to the CD/DVD drive tools and run some tests on the drive and the disk. Also you may want to just try going to My Computer, right clicking the drive, and then click open. If that does nothing, try going to explore on the same context menu and then running whatever it is you wish to run from inside there (it is also best if you refrain from mentioning what it is you wish to run as well, as saying you downloaded a game is not a good idea either; be a little more descrete please XD ).

    If none of that works, you might want to consider cleaning the drive before you go out and by a new one. I had a pretty nice guide written at one time on how to clean and perform preventive maintainance on a CD/DVD-ROM drive at one time. I'll search for it and paste it in if I can find it. May have been in one of the threads that got deleted a while back... I hope not though. That took me a long time to write.


    EDIT:
    I found it. ^^

    "... However, that doesn't explain why you can't read data or audio disks, which leads me to believe that the region isn't the issue. Let me ask a few questions...

    1. Does the drive spin up?
    2. Have you tried cleaning the drive?
    3. Has the computer been severly impacted in any way recently (you hit it, kicked it, put it in a truck and went two-tracking, you get the idea)?

    If the drive spins up, then it isn't the motor. Thats good. If it doesn't, then your motor can be blown, or you arn't getting power to it (which means try a different molex connector off the power supply, or a new power supply if you have one).

    Cleaning the drive is an easy task. If you have one of them little disks with the brushes on them, then you can try that. If not, its a easy task to clean it by hand. What you do is open your computer, disconect the drive, pull it out of the computer, get a screwdriver (the tool) and open it up. Now what you want to do is take a soft cotton swab and put a little bit of isopropyl alchohol (rubbing alchohol if I didn't spell that right) on the swab and gently clean the lense of the laser. If you can see something on the lense that won't come off, you can try to apply more force, but every bit is a risk. Scratch or damage that lense, and you might as well toss the drive. As long as your in there, if you have some grease lying around, put a little of that on your finger and grease the runners, gears, and any other tracts that parts move accross. Doesn't take much, so don't overdo it. I have saved a VCR or two simply by giving it a little grease (my Dad has saved around 10 by doing this).

    If the computer has been impacted recently, then you may have a problem with the laser being out of alignment. You will have to recalibrate it. Prepare for one of the most tedious and most pain in the ass experiences of your life. Your going to have to take the drive apart and try to locate one or two little set screws (small nubs usually with an allen head, a hexigon indentation, that goes almost all the way in, or is inset, to the part they ajust). Don't ask me where they are, every dive is different, so I have no idea. Once these are found, get the proper allen driver and start playing with the set screws. You should see that they ajust the pitch, height, and positioning of the laser. Basiclly, you play with that untill you get it to work. Turn, twist, test... over and over and over agian. There should be a way for you to test the drive without putting it all the way back together. Yes, I am talking about doing this while the computer is on and the drive is hooked up. I won't official say I support you trying this idea (in fact, don't try it at all I don't want to get sued), its dangerous to you and your computer. DON'T TRY THIS... anyway, be sure to remember where you started your calibrations from, so you can put it back to what it was if things get worse. Once you start to get close, you can narrow it down to what screws you need to ajust. It just takes time.... lots and lots of time. If time is money to you... may just be cheaper to go get a new drive if its on sale. ... "

    Mount the image in Daemon Tools. I don't see any reason to burn the image when you can just mount it.
