What is a BWI file?

Bwi file extension has BlindWrite CD/DVD Disc Image file type, developed by VSO Software, which is associated with the "disk image files" category.

Disc images created with the help of BlindWrite have this extension attached to them. This program was designed for making game disc backups, and it creates a complete copy of a CD or DVD. With later versions of BlindWrite, it has become possible to open its images with other imaging applications such as Daemon Tools or Alcohol 120%. In addition to that, you can convert the original BWI image to another format of choice, like .ISO. This option is perfect for macOS users, since it is impossible to open BWI files on their system. The BWI format has been replaced with the newer .B5I format presented in BlindWrite v.5. In the sixth version, the developers changed the format to .B6I
