is it possible (and worth) to convert Dreamcast CDI files to CHD?


Recommended Posts

Since I have some games in CDI format and most of the rest are in CHD; I was wondering if it was worth to convert those CDI files in CHD, or even possible. All I was able to find is GDI to CHD converters, but not CDI to CHD. Is that not worth for some reason?

You may get a few smaller CDIs to convert but for the most part you won't have good success.

CDI format was used to reduce the size to fit on a CD, so original data was changed or removed and conversion to CHD isn't usually successful.

I always found it was easier to just find GDI versions before converting to CHD and you're assured you have a complete and working version.
