Importing old MyISAM database, frm vs. sdi

I have an old backup of a database with entirely MyISAM tables. MYI, MYD, and frm files. If I just copy these files under the datadir of a MySQL Server 8.0, I don't see the database in the monitor. Paths and file permissions are all correct.

I guess it's because of lacking .sdi files? As far as I understand, .frm and .sdi are kinda similar, but I haven't found a tool to convert the old frms to sdi.

Or do I have to adjust something else on the server so it sees the old database? Insert a line into the mysql database somewhere?

Thanks, Szabi
