nrg and iso files

  gazmania 14:08 13 Aug 2006

First, apologies if this question is rather simple or naieve but I just can't work it out.
I have a file on my hard drive with an "nrg" extension. I think it is a CD image. I managed to convert it to an "iso" file using a trial version of Magic_iso. However, I can't see how to transform the nrg or iso files into readable data. I also have Nero Express 6.
Can anyone help?

ISO files are not really meant to be "readable data" but are image files to be burnt to a CD/DVD.

Hmnnnn.....I did think on that line. I tried burning image to CD with no success. I get a messae in Nero saying "foreign file format, wrong block size"

You need to choose the burn image option in nero


Download a trial version of winrar click here and try extracting it to a folder, it should give you your readable files unless you've inadvertently corrupted the image by converting it.

ust looked at winrar it unpacks ISO but not NRG. The one ISO file I have simply unpacks itself to an NRG. So guess I need something to unpack an NRG. Thanks for your help & sorry to be a pain.

nrg is a nero image file.
If you double click on it Nero(if installed)will open and let you burn the image.

choose the option to burn image or ISO file as suggested by De Marcus™
