The purpose of the CD-i File Extractor program (cdifile) is to extract
data from CD-i files.
With the current version of cdifile you can extract the following from
any CD-i disc image file that is supported by CD-i Emulator:
raw file in mode2_raw format with 2352 bytes/sector
cue file compatible with chdman (chd management tool from MAME/MESS)
chd file compatible with MAME/MESS (requires chdman)
CD-i Emulator supports "raw disc image" file formats with sector
sizes of 2448, 2352, 2340, 2336 and 2332 bytes, with or without
two-second pregap and/or scrambling. This should cover all the "raw
disc image" file formats out there. In particular, the Nero (.nrg) file
format for track-at-once images is supported, as well as the IsoBuster
(.bin) and CloneCD (.img) files. Beta versions of CD-i Emulator
also support MAME/MESS compressed hunk data (.chd) files; cdifile also
supports such files and can be used to extract data from them.
A future version of cdifile will allow the extraction of files from a
disc image and the extraction of data, audio and video (with format
conversions) from real-time files and CD-i IFF files; it will also
support an interactive mode to browse disc images and real-time files.
