You can not restore a save file directly from CD.  You therefore have to
copy the file from the CD first of all into a savefile (now standard stuff
When saving a standard tapefile to a CD, the tapefile must not be
compressed, or it all goes belly up.  No such restriction on save files.

There is also the option of using zip/gzip/zlib etc (there are several open
source programs for this) when copying the data from the save file to a
compressed file.
The problems are 1. The length of time it can take on a slower 400 (like
mine) and 2. The extra disk space it takes whilst creating the copy.

You can convert savefiles into the CD format, but I dont believe it works
compressed savefiles... ie the DSPOPT shows the save but the RST fails...
