WinRAR – Extracting ISO Mistakes
I am writing this post because I am frustrated with the amount of novices who use WinRAR and ask:
I have just downloaded a PS2 game. It comes with X amount of RAR files. I proceed to extract the first file and at the end it gives me another RAR file. I extract this file, only to see DATA files and SLUS files and the like. How do I burn this? Where is my .ISO file?”
This is where I bang my head against the wall, because you have the .iSO file in your face, but you don’t even realize it. When you install WinRAR, by default it may associate all .ISO files as a WinRAR archive. WinRAR will allow you to extract this file, and this is exactly what is happening here.
Please go to the Options -> Settings -> Integration Tab and you will see all the file associations. Unselect the .ISO file, and you are good to go. Now you won’t ever be confused because you will see the .ISO file as a regular file, and not a WinRAR file. No more mistake extracting something that you shouldn’t.
