    In the usage how on earth do you specify to nrg2iso where the image file is.

  2. sgriggl says:

    go to the folder where it is located… your toolbar should show the location of the file – use the full extension in your command line.

    for example, if your image is on the desktop:

    nrg2iso /home/Computer/Desktop/image.nrg home/Computer/Desktop/image.iso

    Guys, you may just simply mount the .nrg file like an .iso file with or ‘mount -o loop -t iso9660 foo.nrg /mountpoint’

    I haven’t tried it yet but it should also work if you go to the directory first…

    (On the Desktop):
    cd /home/USERNAME/Desktop/ (Enter)

    nrg2iso image.nrg image.iso (Enter)

    This quite simply does not work. No matter what I enter, I get this:

    Nrg2Iso v0.4 by G. Kokanosky
    released under the GNU GPL v2 or later

    Usage :
    nrg2iso image.nrg image.iso

    –version display version number
    –help display this notice

    Any ideas?

    I received the message that it was already an ISO file. Changing extension from ‘.nrg’ to ‘.iso’ did the trick

  29. xeros says:

    nrg2iso is abandoned project and Ubuntu has still old version in repositories (0.4.x), while last one was 1.0.1.
    To compile 1.0.1 you’ll have to add this to endian.h to get rid of error:
    #define BYTE_ORDER LITTLE_ENDIAN
    as kernel headers have changed.

    Anyway, it doesn’t convert properly many NRG files (old version creates broken ISO but newer version says that file is ‘Not a Nero image file’).
