You extracted the rar files and inside was one single file ? Could this have been an .iso file ? It appears sometimes asociated with WinRar. But the .iso file is the file you need to burn with Nero, not extract with WinRar. Load the iso file as an image in Nero, or any other burning proggie and burn.

DVD images are iso, or img. CD images are usually bin/cue. And of course size can give you hint...

Well, after I extracted one of the many .rar files, then there came another .rar file from the one I extracted. And then I extracted that, and THEN there came a folder named "fifa"... To be honest I'm very "unsure" aboutwhat an .iso file is :S But if you take a look on the overview of files that I posted sooner, can you tell me if there is any .iso files there?

Hmm, very weird. It's also very uncommen that actual gamefiles get posted.
Usually there's a lot of rar files :

game.rar
game.r01
...
game.r94

or

game.001
game.002
...
game.094

Which when extracted leave you with an iso file

game.iso

This sometimes has a Winrar icon, just like a regular winRar archieve.

But if you've got an actual gamefolder and gamefiles, you would need a tool that creates an image file. I'm sorry but with creating images from actual game files I have no experience.

There's probably a certain order in which the files need to be organised.

That rar should extract as an ISO. Did you extract the ISO again with winrar? Don't do this.

I did extract that RAR file with WINRAR and that is where I got all those files from. Am I doing something wrong??

Thanks
