Any way to convert .bin .cue to cdi?
« on: Tuesday May 26, 2009, 12:11:39 AM »
Yea, does anyone know if there is a way to convert .bin .cue files to cdi?

This would be cool so my daughter wouldn't have to us a boot cd for the Dreamcast on .bin .cue games.

Consider mounting the .bin file in a virtual drive, and then use ImgBurn etc. to make a .cdi from that mounted image.

Hmm, in that case, you could add a boot to the .bin, using something like bin2boot.

even if you are able to convert it to .cdi there is a slim chance it may still need the boot disc. I have one that is .cdi and I needed the boot disc to load it...think it was Evolution 2 which I thought was strange beacause the first one was self bootable.
