Convert xva file to raw using Qemu

This is for Linux base OSes and Qemu must be installed before running the command:

From your Linux terminal run:

qemu-img convert -O raw input_file.xva output_file.raw

remember to replace the “source_file” and “output_file” with the actual file names. “source_file” is the name of the file you are converting and “output_file” is the name of the file to be created.
