It's not a conversion, pre se. RAR is a compression format like ZIP. Use an archiving program like WinRAR or PowerArchiver to extract the contents.

Why do you need to convert an archive to a cd image? That doesn't even make any sense.

I figure the RAR file contains an ISO image file. He's just confusing one for the other.

Do you figure it's a legal one too? :lol;

Try looking inside the file for the iso or bin?

Also be sure it is a .rar file. Sometimes when I download iso / bin files, they get the rar icon, but are not in reality rar files.
