Here's a little tool I coded to backup your nfl dvd9 disk to a dvd5 beerchug.gif

user posted image

Instructions
You first need to have the contents of the DVD9 game in a folder on your pc.
Extract the exe and dat file from the rar archive.
Run the tool. Click the browse button [...] and browse to the directory of the game that contains the '0' file (ESPN_NFL_2K5\vc_53450030)...
Click the GO! button and sit back because it may take a while (especially on slower pc's tongue.gif )
Once you see the message 'Process Complete' you can close the tool.
Your game directory should now be approx 4.25GB in size ready for you to burn to a dvd5 disk wink.gif

*All Movies are removed using this tool - also some music


Get the tool HERE

MOD EDIT: Fixed link to tool. smile.gif

Found a little bug in tool that I've just fixed, but for anyone who has already downloaded the pre-fixed version check your ESPN_NFL_2K5\vc_53450030\
and if you see a file called 0_NEW make sure you rename it to 0 before you create a new iso. wink.gif
The link in my first post contains the latest (bug fixed) build of the tool.

I don't think that's quite the same thing as what he coded here.

[Sonix], nice work. Since there have been so many topics started on this subject, I'm going to pin this topic temporarily so that posting on this topic is curbed (in theory).

Nice job. smile.gif

Very nice work Sonix... been sitting on these files for quite some time. Nice to get a working copy.

And, a cute little interface. Solid.

For some reason, the game is not working for me. After using your tool I burned the game and from the beginning there are many glitches. There is no music at all; when picking teams the helmets for each team is just a shadow; it freezes when I first try to play a celeb vip; there is no Chris Berman or voice when a game loads up, just a blank screen that says press A to skip then goes to the screen where it says (insert team) vs (insert team) but without the voice, then it just freezes on a black screen after that and I cannot play a game.

Ok, tool is back online all bugs are fixed (the link in my first post will get you the latest version 1.2)

After the process has finished check the folder called "vc_53450030" and double check all files are the following names/sizes:

This should be final version now as I've tested thoroughly on both dvd and hard drive and no probs found wink.gif

hey sonix great tool, i just have one question what exactly did you get rid of in terms of movies and music? is it just the live action footage and such? how much of that crap was on there to take so much memory anyway

@zhugeliang
All the movies were taken out exept for the espn logo one (all the other movies were relinked to this one) also the background music tracks were removed.

@-PK-
The extracted files were just files, just no filenames or extensions....the movies could be played (with glitchy sound) in power dvd if you added the .mpg extension to the extracted movie files.
