The idea of compressing an iso bz,z,cdz,etc.. has become more and more common now. Most emulators even support opening rars and 7z. I think 7z even compresses to a solid state form that can be mounted to a file rather quickly. At any rate, most psx emulators dont support this much. Moby did some work with bz and z but those compressions are kind of week.

Has anyone heard about any attempts at 7z support in a plug-in? I dont think many developers work on plugins much any more, though I was curious. Also the idea of cdz is getting more popular but I'm not sure its much better then bz.

It would appear that the compression used in .cdz files is gzip/zlib based according to the 4th post on this forum topic:

As you can see there's not much of a file size benefit, and the .cdz format spec is still non-public so it would be very difficult to add support for it in a plugin.
