Opening GI files

Did your computer fail to open a GI file? We explain what GI files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your GI files.

What is a GI file?

Files with the .gi extension are most commonly associated with disk image files. These files are created by a variety of disk creation software applications. The GI files often contain duplicate copies of CDs or DVDs. They can also contain a backup of the information stored on a user's hard drive. Disk creation applications that commonly use the GI file format include Sony CD Extreme, Sonic RecordNow! and UltraISO.

The .gi file extension is also used for Tuningwrench Audio Utility compressed files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
