I apologize in advance for sounding stupid... I only ventured into the world of emulation for the first time 2 days ago.

So, I downloaded Legend of Mana for PSX, and ended up with 7 rar files. I used a rar program to open/compile them and ended up with an .img file, .ccd, .cue, and .sub file.
I suppose these would be helpful if I intend to burn them, but I want to run the game on my mac with an emulator. (FlareStorm)

So where do I go from here? Or have I reached a dead end in my quest for mana?
Any help is appreciated! Thank you.

The most common way to do this would be to download a program which allows you to create virtual drives and then use that program to then mount the image of the disk that you want to play, point the emulator at that drive and then go. I'd normally recommend alcohol 120% for this, but since you're on a mac I don't know what to suggest...perhaps one of the forum members like cipher or flash could help you out.

I've desided to burn the game to a disk and run it that way.
However, I'm still stuck with the img, ccd, cue, and sub files.
Do I need to compile these or something before I burn them? Or do I just burn them to the cd as they are?

your CD burning program should be able to reintegrate the subcodes back into the image using the ccd file. CDs ripped into bin/cue should have no subcodes at all

Good answer there ziggy. At least neither of those links led to goatse.cx.

If you're using toast try simply burn the ISO. I know not all versions of Toast can do that. We had a diskimaging prog here at the shop for our Macs, but I can't for the life of me remember where it is or what it was called.
If I can think of anything, I'll post here.
P.S. Which Mac OS are you running?

I understand that. I'm using OS 9.0 here at my, um, 'workstation'.
I'll ask the designer what he's using (they've the same install up there as you) and see what he knows about creating .dmg files.
