    I have come across two sepparate files now which have contained .GI files and I have no idea what the Hell to do with them?
    It seems a program called Primo DVD deals with them but I can't seem to get any info on that either.
    Any help on what to do or where to get Primo would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards,

    i am guessing you are talking about haunting ground,
    i had a rar file which extracted into 3 gi files,which on the face of it,look like thay should be joined,
    hhmmmm,
    i havent had chance to look into this yet,already had 1 coaster trying to burn the first gi image,it didnt boot.
    they burn with dvd decrypter btw

    if you want to burn it you have to use dvd decrypter...
    but if you're using swap magic, then you have to open it with isobuster, extract it, edit the dummy files and rebuild it!!
    (3 gb of garbage.... :S)

    .gi is called global image

    its like an iso to some
    or a bin cue to others

    it takes all of your cd or dvd and becomes a .gi

    its from a program called sonic record now max 4.5 or above

    its now called sonic record now dx--
    its actually an awesome program---

    wow thats a tuff one

    also i know that the newer versions of sonic record now

    when you go to make an image of a game dvd---it tells you the out put
    filesize and one time i compared it to the actuall dvd size
    and it was half a gig less then the original game
    and a warning came up for the program saying

    some dvd contain material and copyright blah,blah,blah
    and may not save correctly---it did say that so i always use decrypter to make an iso---cause the output file size was gonna be less that meant not all the info would be there--so maybe the person
    did it like thre times (just throw it away and back it up another way) i would

    i have sussed it,
    the first time i didnt get the small file i needed to act as a cue for the rest.
    if you have a set of gi files,u need to burn the smallest,as in the same way a cue file is to a bin file,or an mds is to an iso.
