chessbase 7 light FAQ:

How can I convert my existing CBF-files to the new format?
The easiest way is to convert them directly with Fritz5.
Alternatively use the PGN file as intermediate: ChessBase Light reads and writes the PGN format. So use e.g. Fritz5 or Extreme Chess or a public domain utility to convert CBF to PGN. Then open the PGN database in CBLight and drop its symbol to your CBH database.

How can I convert my data to PGN format?
Create a new database with the ending "PGN", e.g. "MYGAMES.PGN". Drag and Drop a database symbol or a game selection to the symbol of the PGN database. Alternatively you may use CTRL-C/CTRL-V to copy selected games.
