How can I extract files from an X-Box 360 .ISO file?

  • I downloaded the .ISO for Red Dead Redemption on my PC. I figured several files would come in useful for GTA5 mods. What programs can I use to open and extract files from the .ISO? Someone recommended "Daemon Tools". However, I'm reluctant to try it (even though its just $5) because I can't find a good description of what it does.

    If anyone knows any programs that could help with this, please let me know.

  • @hetake07 You might not get much info on here but this might be a good starting place http://gtaforums.com/topic/828211-rel-open-source-red-dead-redemption-explorer/

    Not sure if it requires a proper disc though and to be honest, it may very well do as it requires the encryption key to decrypt the files.

  • @LeeC2202 Thanks, this is actually perfect. Its almost eerie such a highly specific program exists. Now I just need to figure out how to unpack the .ISO and I will be able to get new model resources.

  • @hetake07 I use 7zip and that lets me open ISO files like an archive... might be worth giving that a shot.

  • @LeeC2202 I had no idea I could do that with 7zip. Hopefully the fact that its several gigs wont crash it or anything.

  • @hetake07 I open Windows ISOs for slipstreaming, which are around 4GB, it will be fine. Just extract the ISO to a folder.

  • @LeeC2202 Red Dead Redemption comes on two separate ISO files each are about 7.3GB. So far Ive tried extracting with Power ISO, Magic ISO, and WinZip. They all have the same result. As soon as I click extract, windows explorer stops responding. The program thinks it extracted fully for some reason, and I end up getting like 200MB worth of data.

    Interestingly, If I extract the first ISO, get what few files I have, then try the second ISO, all the files conflict. Not just because they are the same name, but because they are the same files, you can tell because they are the same exact size.

    You seem to know a lot about this, you wouldn't happen to know what I'm doing wrong would you?

  • @hetake07 Hmmm... maybe you need something specific for 360 ISOs then... perhaps my presumption that all ISOs were created equal is wrong. :\

    I don't have any so I can't check I am afraid.

  • @hetake07 daemon tool lite is free ( well not sure it's still since it make long time but it should)

  • @LeeC2202 @Shaezbreizh I figured it out. Xbox put a failsafe on their ISOs to prevent unpacking like this. I had to first go to the ISO preferences and uncheck the read only box, then I had to open it with a program called Xbox Backup Creator. Thanks for all your help :)
