    Not quite sure what your asking. Are you asking how to extract files? How to upload a torrent? How to burn the game?

    If your asking what steps you would have to do in order to burn the game, then ImgBurn is fine to use. You have to make sure that you use DVD -Rs [not +Rs]. If you have Imgburn installed, then all you need to do is right click on the ISO file you have downloaded, and choose to "burn with Imgburn". Then, once it's done burning, you need to have a Backup Loader installed on your Wii [such as NeoGamma r7/8] and your good to go.

    On a small note, if your trying to play an out of region game, then you must force the video to your region [this can be done in the setting of the backup loader]. So if your in the US [NTSC] trying to play a european [PAL] then you must force the video to NTSC.

    Download 7zip, it will extract just about everything.

    You don't need to do step D.

    Is it one file, or split files? It could just be a bad archive.

    Well from the sound of it, you probably downloaded it in zip format. Get an extractor kinda like the one mauifrog pointed out and then extract them. It should give you a .iso file. Take that file and drag it over to imgburn and set the speed to either 2X or 4X and then let it burn. If you have trouble extracting it, then it could just be a corrupted file. You should look for scrubbed games as they are smaller files and quicker to download.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    You probably downloaded a file with a lot of peices in it, try looking for the file that is in .rar format and extract it, then burnit using image burn.

    That is a good site. I have good luck with thepiratebay, but there are many others. When downloading a torrent find one that has alot of seeders and leechers and many good comments. Always read the comments. It take a long time so don't be in a hurry, could take a few days depending. Best to only download a few at a time, and you can't do anything with them until they are 100% complete.

    If you have a rar file, it will consist of many many files which are numbered- there is some variability in this. Some times it start with one rar file and the rest are numbers, other times they are all numbered depending on the method used. To extract them you will need to find the rar file or #1 rar file and extract that one. Or select all of the bastards, with 7zip installed, right click on the blue mass of files, 7zip, extract here. Should work.
