Files with the DMG extension are bootable disc images, supported in Mac OS X systems. This files are often encountered with installers of software downloaded from the internet. Such files are opened with the Apple Disk Utility application, which is used for mounting images in Apple devices.
CDI files are used for storing disc images created using DiscJuggler software tool. What is the difference between a disc image and a backup copy? Disk image not only contains all the data stored on the cloned disc, but also information about the physical layout of the data bits on the disc.
After converting the file to the new format, you will be able to use other programs to support it. Keep in mind, however, that the DMG file after converting to CDI may differ slightly from the original. The most important information should be kept, but if you want the file after conversion from DMG to CDI to be the same, you have to do this carefully and choose the proper application from the list below.
There is no guarantee, of course, that the conversion will come up to all your expectations, but it will certainly help you. If, after all, the effect of converting DMG to CDI does not meet your expectations, you can simply try to find on the Internet a different version of your file in DMG format, properly converted to a CDI file by someone else. If this fails, use the information provided in the further part of the website.
If after converting the file DMG the desired result was not achieved, you can try to change the format of DMG file to other than CDI. On our website you will find more information on the following conversion options
Unfortunately, if after performing the two previously described steps (trying to find your DMG file converted by someone else, and the attempt to convert it to CDI on your own) you still have a problem with your file, then there are only a few solutions left. You can once again try to find and install an application that can open the DMG file in its original format (without conversion to CDI file). Such a solution will be difficult to implement, but it certainly will give the best result.
