My understanding (an admittedly pretty sketchy understanding) of .nrg files is that if they're simply data images with a single session, they are basically .iso files (and most things will work with them if you simply rename them with an .iso extension).
However, if they are audio disc images or data images with multiple sessions, then they are not .iso compatible.
In the Nero control applet select to "make all types and formats avalible in image writer" and then chose to save images as "ISO" rather than NRG.
As for the constant calls to switch (on many boards) from Nero, people just can't understand that Nero does alot that the others (IMGBurn et al) can't.
It would be nice to see nero files supported since I use the software for more "exotic" formats that can't be saved as ISO images.
What things can Nero burning Rom's do that Imgburn can't? and as an ISO is the full image of a disc what else could there be in these 'exotic' formats?
So please, add nrg-support, that'd be awesome!
Multitracking, and ordering, RAM-position cloning....
Lets see, HVD, CHDVD, CVD, EVD, Karaoke (KCD and KDD images), S2D (subtitle on second disc)....
Nero, and ISOBuster, can use NRG images for reverse track recording on EITHER layer (ImgBurn can only reverse the second layer, and NOT from a prebuilt image).
DVD-RAM clones with split-positioning and duplicate positioning. Realising that none of this is "common", it still would be nice to add nrg support for those of us who DO use the more advanced and uncommon power features that can not be achieved in a standard ISO format.
Oh, and there's CDT/CDT+ (CDDA with Text), CDEG, multisession cloning, ...!
Data position measurement clones, Ghosting bans and violations of user rights , (known as DRM),
For those that "need" nrg images, the support would be great.
>> How about a "Pro" version of VCD for a fee? I'd pay for it! kind of like DT and Alc have pro versions and free versions. You could make the pro version support other more advanced images like NRG and IGF files that are much harder to implement support for!? 29.99 lifetime sale?
Pro version is a good idea. I'd also be glad to pay if it supported more formats! Just a pity, lifetime licenses won't be available anymore next year ...
you could try daemon tools....it can read .nrg from what i remember
nice necromancy for a newbie with his first post. Dig up a 2.5year old thread lol
