I think he was just saying that most probably you were starting from hydro.chd as input and converting it to a hydro_new.chd as output
I doubt he was claiming filenames do any difference: if you first changed name to your chd from hydro to hydro_old and then you used your command line, of course you got the same result of his command line

the only thing to avoid is

chdman copy -i hydro.chd -o hydro.chd

which would overwrite your original file when starting the process and you'd lose it if anything goes wrong
