MDI files are generated and managed by Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) utility available for Microsoft Office XP, 2003 and 2007. MDI is a high-resolution graphic file containing scanned documents.
MDI files are tag-based, which enables their usage with optical character recognition (OCR) software. Graphical data in MDI can be converted into plain text file and saved as Microsoft Word DOC.
MDI files can be converted into TIFF format for better compatibility with third-party software using this more universal file format. Despite many similarities with TIFF format , MDI format is proprietary to Microsoft. Saving MDI files in TIFF format guarantees image compatibility with other programs and applications.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the MDI extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of MDI file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the MDI file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the MDI file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the MDI file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the MDI file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the MDI file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the MDI file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
If you have additional information about the MDI file, we will be grateful if you share it with our users. To do this, use the form here and send us your information on MDI file.
