March 28, 2013 // 9:04 pm - Following up on my PS2Classics Guide on Converting ISOs to XMB PS2 Games guide, today I (Spewfr) have released a PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-Line GUI v1.0 Beta for PS3 users complete with source code.

Download: PS2iso2pkg.rar (3 MB) / PS2iso2pkg.rar (Mirror)

I recently decided to start converting my PS2 ISO's for use with the PS3 system; here you have a Command-Line GUI that I think is simple to use.

NOTE THAT THIS TOOL uses the same RAP key for every game it processes (the same one that PS2Classics GUI uses, so credit to them for all of the hard work over at ps3dev-network)

If enough positive feedback is given to this project, I will continue to enable BIN formats and add other changes...

What this program will do:

  • Create a PKG and RAP for your ISO
  • Pros: Can launch the game from XMB at any point
  • No multi-man required
  • Cons: Requires disc space (but you can use a game data switcher)
  • Requires installation of multiple RAP's


1. Place your icons files inside of the Images folder
2. Run PS2iso2pkg.exe
3. Enter the PS2 Game ID
4. Enter the PS2 Game Title
5. Follow the On-Screen Instrucions
6. WAIT until all [9] processes have completed
7. COPY the "exdata" and "packages" folder to an external HDD
8. Install the PKG entitled with your Game ID
9. Install and run reActPSN (included in packages folder)
10 You're all good!

Source is included in src, Please leave a comment explaining any problems you face (I hope none )

The method by xXRagnarokXx won't work because VMC1 is not loaded by most PS2 games.

I suggest you remove it

you need to resign the final pkg created to your firmware using the eboot & pkg resigner

You must restart and ensure that you entered 5 digits. If it displays 4, you entered four digits. It copies verbatim what you gave it.

No bad news so far - Post your findings! Have my crappy tools finally evolved into useful ones?

Thanks for the help. I didn't enter the SLUS- part this time but the program gave out the wrong ID. It only showed the last 4 digits. When I entered the missing digit, it started the encryption. It seems to complete. I save the ISO.BIN in the "tools" folder but the program does not see it and asks me to move it there. I put it in the tools folder that came with the program. Is that not correct?
