  1. 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

  2. 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)

  3. Uh no, Guest you can’t simply mount it with that command. Wrong FS type. Thanks for the advice on nrg2iso. Works great

  4. 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?


  5. open terminal, go to directory where file is,type

    nrg2iso file.nrg file.iso

    simple even a noob should cope

  6. hi….

    tq for the tips….

    but for me when i converting the .nrg file it says its already .iso 9660 file what i did is

    i change the extension image.nrg to image.iso

    and burn it using brasero…..

    to get brasero just search from ubuntu software center….

  7. I had to rename the file. For instance ‘New Moon.nrg’ to ‘image.nrg’ and the simply follow the format ‘nrg2iso image.nrg image.iso’. Thanks,worked geat for me.

  8. On ubuntu cant convert…

    Rozpakowanie nrg2iso (z …/nrg2iso_0.4-4_i386.deb) …
    Przetwarzanie wyzwalaczy dla man-db…
    Konfigurowanie nrg2iso (0.4-4) …
    [email protected]:~$ ./nrg2iso
    bash: ./nrg2iso: No such file or directory

    too bad :/

  9. [email protected]:~$ sudo apt-get install nrg2iso
    [sudo] password for response:
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    E: Unable to locate package nrg2iso

  10. I have found where is problem. I have written into the terminal
    sudo apt-get update
    and then repeat procedure and it is OK now.

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

  12. i just changed extension (right click, properties) to .iso and simply opened it with archive manager.
