Hi mlovell30uk, I will try to help...  :D

What is the tool you refer to ?, can you give me the links ?.

What do you mean by "extract them" ?

Steve :-)

hi thanks ...sorry the link was from a diffrent fourm but im sure iv seen it here on an archive ,,
If you want the music off you can try this.

It is a tool I made for getting the videos off my video surfer and renaming them with the correct name. You will need to install your sound leisure drive into another PC and probably back up those audio files before attempting the tool. It worked fine on my video surfer but I have never tried it on a sound surfer.

The issue with the sound/video surfer models are that they are singles based, they are quite old and have very little hard drive space. Your best option is to install a new PC with large hard drive and the jukebox software of your choice. You should still be able to hook up the coin mech should you so wish with little problems.

I think I know wat you want to do now, you want to get some videos from an old hard drive and change their names, right ?

If so, why can't you just copy them from the old hard drive to your new drive like the post from the other forum says ?.

what format are the videos, mp4,avi ?

can you rename them by hand ?, or are there too many of them perhaps ?

hi yes  i can coppy them but they all have numbers no name and there are hundreds of them ...the tool that was made renames them to the right name.
it gets the info from a dat file .

In that case you would indeed need a tool to rename them, I dont know if one exists, you would probably need to make a custom tool to do it...

what format are the videos, mp4,avi ?
