Hi Guys,

Looking for some help an advice, before anyone asks I’ve done a Google search! lol.

I have an original XBOX copy of a MAME DVD that I used to play. I no longer have the XBOX but am looking to use the ROM's that are stored on the DVD and play them on my PC. The problem is that when I put the DVD in my PC looking to extract the ROM files the DVD appears blank as if there is nothing on it??? However the files are definitely there.

Does anyone know how I can read this DVD and extract the ROM’s???

Thank you Advance


Use nero or something similar to make an image of the disc.
Then use an xbox iso image tool to extract whatever you want from it.
