    Is it possible to convert VFD to IMG ?

    I think yes, but I don't want to damage dumps.

    Yes, rename the file extension from .vfd to .img. That's it.

    I know this way, but renaming file extension doesn't damage dump?

    Both .vfd and .img are raw formats, with no metadata. They are identical.

    or you could use something like UltraISO to "convert" but yeah, rename is enough.

    Is there any way to download this otherwise? The individual file link doesn't seem to be working. The Mega download shows to 100% but can't be located anywhere on my PC. Any suggestions? I downloaded the app add-on. I've downloaded it like 5 times and a search shows it nowhere on the computer at all. I'm at a loss and a program I am desperately wanting is in this batch.

    after I installed the app for mega, it saves everything by default to my desktop. Last place I thought to look too hehe.

    If you only want one file, let me know what it is. I can make it a separate DL.

    Well I'd love to have them all. I finally got it download and save properly after alot of changing settings. However the downloaded file says it is not a valid 7Zip archive. Any suggestions for that?

    Nevermind. I finally got it working. Extracting the files as we speak. Thanks for the response though.

    The links for the downloads do not work anymore. Is there a new link where I can download the complete file or download each app separately?

    Thanks

    I have updated the first post with a new link. I repacked the files and added a password to the file, password is with the link.

    I downloaded the fle but it seems to stop at 99%. Is it supposed to stay at 99% for awhile until it is finished downloading?

    use chrome or firefox with the mega extension if it doesn't continue. But yeah, sometimes it will sit at 99 for a few, but usually on upload not download
