    Going forward I'm ripping directly to ISO, but is it possible to convert existing "folder games" to ISOs?

    You can create ISO from existing games using mmCM (aka multiMAN) or IRISMAN and other Iris Manager forks.

    OK I feel dense but, how in MM do you do this? I can't find anything that looks like what I would need.

    Change to mmCM mode and press :but tri: on the game. MM mode doesn't have ISO support.

    Or use IRISMAN, the option is found everywhere... Also make sure that you have Cobra payload enabled (you probably don't have it, since normally MM enters in mmCM mode when it detects Cobra).

    I am running Rebug Cobra so, definitely have that (I also went in to Rebug settings and enabled it to be sure)

    So, if I'm in mmCM mode, the folder-ized game will just appear? And then I can convert it to ISO?

    Why not just try it? The answer will be obvious ;)

    irisman can also simultaneously convert and copy to ntfs or split and copy to fat32 as 4gb parts.that saves one step if you're using external storage.

    Yes that is just as good, it just depends whether you want to use PC or PS3 for converting.

    Well the answer was not at all obvious to me, I couldn't figure out how to do it and gave up. I guess I'll try again.

    Well I tried again and no dice. Using mmCM, but the GAMES/ directory doesn't appear anywhere. All my ISOs stored in PS3ISO/ show up fine, but not the GAMES folder that contains the folder-ized games I want to convert to ISO.

    Maybe your games in folder format under GAMES don't have the correct folder structure. Example:
    Code:
    x:\GAMES
       |_NAME OF THE GAME\
                       |_ PS3_DISC.SFB
                       |_ PS3_GAME\
                                |_ ICON0.PNG
                                |_ PARAM.SFO
                                |_ LICDIR\
                                        |_ LIC.DAT
                                |_ USRDIR\
                                        |_ EBOOT.BIN

    That is the exact folder/file structure.

    Is your external HDD formatted with NTFS? If so, they won't be recognized. GAMES folders are only supported on FAT32.

    Yes, MBR NTFS. ISO games work perfectly.

    In that case use IRISMAN to create the ISO using the File Manager, or copy the GAMES to hdd0 and use multiMAN to create the ISOs, or connect the HDD to PC and convert the games using genPS3ISO or Rudi Rastelli's PS3 ISO Tools which is based on Estwald's MAKEPS3ISO.
