Can someone help out?

Post by LUNA NOCTURNE on Fri 25 Jan 2013, 18:18

Im new here so if i made the post in the wrong section please forgive me, first time posting, okay so i downloaded The Sims 3 Base game and it's in a rar file, when i extract the rar file with winrar i get a crack, a guide and two ISO files, now i don't want to mount those files but what i want to do is to burn them on a double DVD ( 8.5 GB ), so i got Nero, i know i can burn it with Nero but how do i burn both ISO's on the same DVD? I've burned the game few years ago with Nero like that but lost the DVD and don't remember what i did. So can someone help me out, or im on my own?

P.S. Those double DVD's are not cheap, so i don't want to mess up.

Hello there,

Double DVD's? I'm not sure about those.
I can confirm that it'll work if you burn each .ISO to a different (normal) DVD.

Then first insert the "STARTDISK" one and start the installation wizard. During the installation, it'll ask for "Disc 1"; now insert the second disc and continue installation.
All other steps stay the same.

//EDIT

I personally haven't used Nero for years now, but it should have an option called something like "Burn disc image" or something similar.

Really, will it work if i burn them on two 4.7 GB DVD's? That's even better, but i was wondering can i merge those two ISO's into one and then burn them on the 8.5 GB DVD? Yes, there is an option to burn and ISO CD/DVD on Nero, in Nero burning rom that is.

Hello,

As far as I know, there's no way to merge ISO's. It will definitely work if burned to 2 DVD's. They are, in essence, 2 disks to start with.
Of course you can burn both ISO's on a DVD as long as it fits, but without an "autoplay" function I think.

The hard-coded paths are relative paths, otherwise we'd all be forced to install from a burnt CD/DVD - and I never install from cylindrical optical media that scratches too easily, if I don't have to. So as long as you put them in separate folders at the root you should be fine as long as the disc is large enough to handle all of the data (and it should be, based on what you've stated). Example of what I mean:

Say you want to put The Sims 3 and World Adventures on one disc, you should be fine doing something like this:

[DVD root]\The Sims 3\--sims 3 files copied/pasted here--
[DVD root]\World Adventures\--world adventures fiels copied/pasted here--
