How to Convert CDI to ISO

Updated March 23, 2017

CDI, or CD-i, is similar to a regular CD; however, it can store video, graphics and computer data. In addition, the defunct Philips CD-i gaming console used the CD-i format for its games. You can convert CDI to ISO with an ISO creator. The ISO disc image is a popular disc image used online. The ISO contains replicated data from a CD, DVD, Blu-ray, VCD or other disc formats. You can play ISOs on your computer with disc-imaging software such as MagicISO, AnyToISO Converter and UltraISO.
