Recommended software for .cdi mounting?

Post#1 » Thu Mar 28, 2019 9:48 pm

Does anyone have a suggestion for a program to mount .cdi images? I used to use Daemon Tools Lite but I hear it's now infested with malware. I've just bought a new laptop so don't want to screw it up.

Thanks!

Assuming Windows, I personally just use MagicDisc for my disc mounting needs. Works on everything from Windows 98/ME up to Windows 8 (and probably works on Windows 10).

Thanks, but it doesn't work with Windows 10 :(

I can see this option when I right click on .iso files but not .cdi. Have you managed to get a .cdi to mount this way??

I wasn't aware there was any software capable of mounting CDI. You definitely can't do it out of the box with any version of Windows.

hmm i mount the pc quake 3 cd image with the win 10 option so i dont have to put the cd in the drive to run servers. Im thinkin its because the pc cant read the dreamcast cdi format thats why it wont mount. Only the dreamcast or dremcast emulator can read it

I used to Daemon Tools Lite and even that I'd seen it's bloated and maybe needs license even?

Sorry that I can't mount CDI neither!

No licence for daemon tools is necessary.

You virtual clone drive too.
