Content IDs are 7-digit codes used by the iQue Player and iQue@Home to uniquely identify each game. The system used supports up to 100 versions of 100 games in 100 genres, and their respective manuals.

Super Mario 64's content ID is 1101104.

  • The first and second characters (1101104) of any content ID define the genre.
  • The third and fourth characters (1101104) actually identify the game, increasing by 1 with each new game in the genre.
  • The fifth character (1101104) determines the type of content - 1 for a game, 9 for a manual. Other types of content were possibly planned.
  • The sixth and seventh characters (1101104) are thought to be the version of the content, though this isn't definitely confirmed.

Internally, the iQue Player converts the content IDs to hexadecimal (e.g. 0010cd30 for Super Mario 64) for storing .app, .rec and .sta files.
