I split the ISO file (Kingdom Hearts), then tried to run it through the extractor. It didn't work, so I tried running them through individually. There are 3 files. The first stops at 98%. The second stops at 5%, and the last goes all the way through but doesn't find any MPG files. I tried re-splitting the file, thinking that maybe it encountered an error there, then tried running the entire un-split ISO file through the extractor. Neither worked. Am I going to have to buy a capture card or is it just a file error that can be corrected?


I've had the same problem, plus, when i try to extract a large audio file using MFAudio, the program just freezes about halfway through. Any suggestions?


i have had the same problem and killer_moogle i like you'r paine thing

Maybe I should also recommend before doing my ps2 ripping method, try to see if the game's movie files can be read normally with ps2play or pssplex before trying it.

Kingdom Hearts

I too tried to rip Kingdom Hearts and encountered the same error. I then did it without splitting the files, which I don't know why you'd do in the first place, and encountered the same error around 966 Mb, which is where it was before. You who have seen this error as well, does it occur at that specific place for all of us?

Oh, by the way, this means that the failure of the extractor is in no way due to having accidentally split a file half way. Also I would recommend removing that step for people who have greater than the ripped game's space again free on their computers after ripping because it is not beneficial except that the TEMP files created will be smaller at any given time.
PS. This is not to say that FileSplitter isn't worthwhile, on the contrary, it is one of the most helpful utilities out there, just not for this.

I'm going to try to split the files at exactly 966Mb to see if that will make anything turn up.

Didn't work, I'm going to keep trying various things until I find something.

Also I have never seen any .pss files when I 'explore' the PS2 game in my DVD drive. Does anyone know why this might be?
Does the methods outlined in this FAQ, ignoring the parts that are obviously system specific, work for PSX disks as well?

Most, if not all, psx discs can be read with psmplay or anything else.

The movies themselves don't have the subtitles on most occasions. Its usually programmed to run in game only, not just when the movie plays.

Its just not encoded in .pss format. Some companies (such as sony) probably do leave it in .pss, but a lot will tend to go a different way.

:cry: sorry about that...

Also, I think i made a bit of a discovery... any game that DVD Decrypter doesn't read the name of, doesn't seem to work for this whole process. For FFX-2, it read the name of the disc as FFX2 (or something like that). I've tried this with Kingdom Hearts and Xenosaga, and their disc name never appeared in DVD Decrypter. They also did not work for ripping anything. I did not come across the problem in Xenosaga that we have seen in KH where the program just stops. It merely does not pick up on anything... so i believe we're dealing with multiple encryptions here.

I'm going to try a few more PS2 games to test my theory... i'll get back to you guys ASAP.

I really only tested the method with FFX and FFX-2.

Me = fraud :cry:
