    I have a ps2 game that came in .001, .002 files so i used 7-zip to extract all the files. My Problem is that when it did, it was not an ISO file. It was the original PS2 files that are in the iso's. (system, video, etc..).

    I would like to know how to make those files into a ps2 iso.
    I've also tried Winrar, same results.


    * In case anyone was wondering, I did not accidentally extract the iso file.

    Yeah, I already set winrar to not extract the iso. My problem is that the game isn't in iso at all.

    -I've never come across this before, I've downloaded many games and extracted them into iso format many times. So I have some experience with this.

    I guess my problem is that I need to make an iso with the files, instead.

    you cant set winrar to extract the iso

    i have never seen a ps2 game that comes this way

    Private message me the link for the game,i will check it out

    and as for your problem,if you have the files,you can use imageburn to rebuild the image

    mode/build/options-set file system to ISO 9660 +UDF / drag and drop all the files into the window on the left hand side/click the build button/burn the iso
    if the iso dont load,you need the file order of the game

    I replied to this thread via PM on how to solve,but i'd thought i'd post it here for anyone else who comes across this problem

    Sometimes,some numbnut will post a game without packing correctly imo,i.e they dont use winrar
    basically the Raw ISO image isnt compressed like normal.....but its just split.i.e using a program called HJsplit
    this program can also be used to re-join them back to the original state

    Now this is where you must not get confused with rar files,and try and join a set of rar archives back together,because that wont work

    Only,and only if you are certain you know what you are doing,and are convinced the files you have are not rar files,should you try using HJsplit

    If you use HJ split on a set of rar files,then change the extension number to .iso or whatever,and burn it,you will end of with a coaster

    So....if you have a set of files that look like rar files,and you havent got winrar assocaited with ISO IMAGES,and when you extract them you get the games files (system.cnf/sles/slus etc etc),then its likely you need HJsplit
