    Heya,

    I got a VAiO PCV-9913 here and I got hands on parts of the data of a recovery DVD.

    Its not an image and its not (yet) bootable.

    Also I dont want to install the recovery XP version, but only install 1 specific software from it.
    (Giga Pocket, to watch TV)

    Problem is, apart form autorun.exe and a Windows Folder, there are 2 giant files:

    SONY.I01 (655 MB)
    File header : 54 43 4A 4E 49 BB 62 50 3D 00 63 TCJNI»bP=.c

    SONY.PAC (1.34 GB)
    File header : 2A 01 01 2A *..*
    7zip starts to unpack and then says "cannot unpack as archive"

    Does anyone know if there was an unpacker for such files or if only the file header got modified ?
    I really dont want to install this bloated XP...just Giga Pocket

    Regards,
