What makes you think the CDI file herrgafgarion is trying to convert is a DC game? IIRC, someone here did post a link to his/her web site that had Saturn games to download, but they're in DiscJuggler (.CDI) format.
i can use DJ but i cant change the country code and then it wont boot so that would be a waste of time, same thing with turning it to NRG, it wont let me change country code, hey DIG grow the #### up man, make a friend or get a hobby that doesnt require you making yourself look like an ass. OH by the way the newest beta of CDMAGE turns it to a bin just fine, burned it today and it works great, thanks for all the help.
Anyways, you are able to extract the files with the same procedure as a DC copy (I think). Maybe the things that change are the files start sector and the boot.bin filename. Someone knows this, or at least the start sector and how to make a working saturn cd from plain files (don't tell me they are standard mode1 tracks)?
If there was no CDmage, you could have burned it to CD-RW (if you have) or CD-R, then rip that back to an image in BIN/CUE format and convert the country code that way. But since CDmage worked, case closed.
