    What re you wanting to do? the emulator can run iso files just fine using the linuzapps cdvd plugin, there' no need to look for an elf file.

    If I remember off hand elf files = PS2 exe files, if I am remembering correctly then every single PS2 games uses them but renamed to SLUSXXX.XXX or SLESXXXX.XXX for us and eu games and variations of those

    basicly the elf file is renamed to the games code, thats on the back and side of the game box aswell as the CD/DVD

    change it to what????

    emulation and burning you need an iso that is a CD/DVD image and has all the game files contained within the iso, extracting an iso is not a good idea unless you know what you are doing and the only reason you would do that would be to edit the contents only to build a new CD/DVD iso image

    Other possible reason I can think of is HDD/USB installing maybe????

    are you trying to use the freemcboot agent under fire mod using an elf file? besides rebuilding it such as making a cd game into a dvd, or the 007 mod i have no idea why you would need to change an elf.

    Your looking for a second elf file then, they do sometimes rename these to bin or exe, though still remain to be an elf file, usually for games that have extra features in them or multiple games

    well you cant put freemcboot on a ps2 without 007. there are a few others that were unconfirmed but tested by someone but i just picked up 007 to save a headache.
