it could be its a discjuggler 3 image, in which case your easiest bet is to burn it to a cd-rw, and rerip it from that cdrw into bin/cue format

i assume your wanting to patch it for the country code right? (you can use a cdr instead, but a cd-rw would just allow you to reuse the disc after thats all)

Maybe you should stop pirating dreamcast games, since you're too stupid to figure out how to burn/convert them.

bin2iso only converts bin files to iso's, not cdi, and plus, the newer cdi files are fucked and you cannot extract a bin file out of them using cdmage if i remember correctly.

ummm, why not just burn it with diskjuggler? and if diskjuggler doesnt work, there is a really good cdi2nrg program so you can convert it to nero. If it still doesnt work, ummm, find it somewhere else i guess.

You're right 'kuma. I apologize for jumping the gun. CDI is a format though that is widely used for dreamcast piracy.

You can use cdirip to convert the cdi to a raw iso file and then isofix to make the iso readable by cdmage or isobuster. The latest version of cdirip supports even cdi files of discjuggler 3.5

its not a dc game, it is Blue Seed for saturn

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)?
