Get the "Deamon Tools" (use google, best of all: it's free!), download the .bin and .cue files, then mount the .cue file with deamon tools. this creates a virtual cd-drive which you can play from directly, without having to burn the image at all (faster loading times... )!
If you want to burn it on a cd: mount the image, then use clonecd and copy from the virtual cd to a real one.
I did same ended up using 2 winrar files 1 was cd1 2 was cd2 then i extracted with winrar to 2 new folders i put bellow the winrar files.
After extraction you end up with a CUE and BIN file i each new folder and a useless sys info icon thats not needed.l
You then install a programme called DEAMON which is normally used as part of a DVD TO SVCD rippin kit.
As you said you cant see the files but when you mount the CUE or BIN file in the VIRTUAL DRIVE that DEAMON makes you will be able to install the game as if it is a real cd and a real cd-rom drive,obvisiously you need to unmount disc 1 when asked and mount disc 2.
You will still need a serial number or key and a patch for no-cd play,i got them all from a site called K--ZA.
Use a bit of guesswork as im not supposed to say the bad name above on here,enev thought one of the moderators who doesnt like this kind of talk has answered you already.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
