    depends. Where'd you get it? .gi generally means 'global image', and is frequently used by several disk creation software apps, such as Roxio.

    thanks,

    No guarantee that it will open your .GI file but you might want to give the free version of ISOBuster a shot at it.

    That file is likely to be a disk image containing other file types which may be video files.

    Try opening the .gi file with ISObuster (which is free) and extracting the individual video files.

    Open the .GI file with ISO Buster and it will show you the contents of it. You should then be able to right click on each file in turn and extract/save it elsewhere.
