Dude, what a lame thread.
Not knowing what you have, you probably put all those files in a directory and use Craxtion to make an ISO of that directry and burn them.
However, sounds like you've done something illegal (i.e. downloading a game you don't own) so, now that I've answered your question, I'm closing this thread.
