πŸ“Œ The .GDI container category ordinarily references the file dumps designed for and focused on Sega Dreamcast emulators. Therefore, this certain data type generally comprises a raw copy of the original game content applied and opened by Dreamcast console emulators. Also the .GDI file constitution may embrace .RAW and .BIN object resources. Indeed, the .GDI file samples are distinguished as full copies of original Dreamcast game titles and will only properly run in conjunction with proper emulators. However, the .GDI file elements cannot be burned on a common CD-ROM disk like .CDI sources. As a matter of fact, the .GDI pattern is originated from the GD-R discs that Sega Dreamcast console made use of, so the properly formatted .GDI entries can only be burned with the involvement of GD-Roms and blank GD-R optical carriers. On the logic and mechanics, GD-ROMs are nearly analogous to CD-ROMs considering the clause that they open, burn, or read GD-R optical disks instead. The β€œGD” abbreviation stands for the β€œGigabyte Disc” term. The original Dreamcast GD disks occupy 1.2 GB of space, while about 200 MB of that amount is frequently assigned to music sequences and compositions, from this point the .BIN data structure unrolls. Both .GDI and .CDI data patterns are assigned for Dreamcast console emulators, although the former file method appears more efficient and productive.
