So you downloaded a NRG file for burning
a CD ... but you don't have Nero to burn it
In this article I'll show you how simple it is
to convert a NRG file to an ISO file.
A NRG file, as is a ISO file,
is basically a complete image of a CD-Rom. The problem with NRG files
is that they require you to have Nero in order to burn them - also
most virtual CDRom tools do not support Nero (like the free CD-Daemon).
We will use a program called NRG2ISO (by
Illig) which you'll also find on the Download
Note: Read the disclaimer!
Copying copyrighted CD's is in most countires illegal!!
The first step is to download the NRG2ISO application
from the Download page or from Rolland's
The downloaded file (nrg2iso.rar) must be extracted using WinRar.
After extraction, double click the NRG2ISO.EXE file.
This window now appears;
NRG2ISO: Start window
Convert NRG to ISO
As we already mentioned in the header of this page;
a NRG file can only be burned to CD by using Nero.
Well, with the application NRG2ISO this
is extremely easy by converting only the NRG file to
an ISO file.
This can also be usefull in case you CD-writer software is incapable
of burning NRG's or when you're using a tool like CD-Daemon.
The ISO file can be burned with most CD-burning software
(even with Nero: Burn
ISO files with Nero).
Click the button "Source
file" field. Use the upcoming dialog to select the desired
NRG2ISO will automatically suggest the same file name, now with the
extension .ISO. You can change the name manually if
you want to.
Now click the button "Convert", and it's
a matter of waiting a few minutes.
Once the ISO file is completed, you can
use most CD-Burning programs to burn the image.
