    This is not the way to do it.

    Those 4 CD files are not .rar : they are of .iso extension. Simply .iso files are associated with Winrar by default.

    In Nero, you must burn them by choosing "Burn CD Image" (don't make them bootable, they will be by default).

    Or he downloaded the .iso files archieved as .rar.

    In that case, unpack them and burn the .iso files.
