    Hello. :) This short guide explain how to get DVD9 games to work as PS2 classics on HAN and CFW. I looked into FF12 izjs English translation, to find issue that stopping it from boot on han. I figured out 2 issues that iso had. First one was size of iso that was not dividable by 0x4000. Second one was issue with script inside PS2 Classic GUI. Function for adding LIMG for some reason read non standard iso in bad way. DVD9 is also non standard iso, so we need to fix it manually.

    Required tools:


    Steps:

    1. Open iso in Imgburn, and check sector count.
    • Open iso like you want to write it to DVD to get this screen.

    2. Open calc site (http://www.calculator.net/hex-calculator.html)
    • Now convert sector count from decimal to hex

    • Write down "Hexadecimal value" result somewhere

    3. Open iso in PS2 classic GUI, and select "Add LIMG"

    • Confirm adding LIMG sector if prompted
    • Close PS2 Classics GUI

    4. Open iso in HxD
    • Search for 4C494D47 in hex

    • Replace both, sector count to result from hex calculator (279890 in this case), and sector size to 0x800
    • Remember to not change file size here! You need to replace value, not add it.

    5. Save iso, and open it again in PS2Classics GUI
    • Select encrypt
    • When asked to patch LIMG sector, select NO

    • Create pkg as usual using freshly created iso.bin.enc, and follow next steps required for HAN (resign).

    Nice one kozzy.
    A DVD9 PS2 classics conversion tutorial was something that was really missing in the ps3 arsenal.. ;)

    FYI @aldostools Maybe is possible to fix it inside GUI, now when we know what is issue, and what is solution?

    I got it just right before going to work, for now i can only say that sector count, and sector size are correctly detected for GT4 (where previously was not). But i wasn't had enough time to make pkg. I will test it better after work. :)

    If possible, please also test previous working ISO images from CD and DVD5 (specially the ones larger than 4GB). Just to confirm that these didn't break with the changes.

    Feedback from other users are welcome too ;)

    So.. Summary for now.

    GT4 DVD9 work fine (!)
    Bloody Roar 3 (CD 0x930) work fine
    Metal Saga ~1,5GB work fine
    Dead or Alive 2 (4,674,387,968 bytes DVD5) work fine

    But.. I'm not HAN user, so more testing is needed. Anyway looks like everything work like it should now. Finally after all those years ps2 classics DVD9 are now playable on HAN, and CFW without cobra. :)

    I'm starting to hate these stupid heuristic algorithms...

    EDIT:
    In that case use sendspace's mirror.
