    I hope you can help.
    I'm a DVD noobie and have a question for you DVD specialists.

    I downloaded a movie file from the Net.
    It turns out that the file is in NRG format.

    NRG seems to be a file type found on DVDs.
    But I don't have a DVD burner.

    I would like to play this file from the hard drive.

    How can I do that? Am running WinXP Pro/SP2.

    Thank you.

  2. I believe that's a Nero image file, you will
    probably need Nero to burn it to the appropriate
    media either cd or dvd.

    a little searching says media player will play the file, which appears
    to be a Nero file for burning to dvd. It could be that you might need
    to update media player though, sometimes formats don't work in older

    You can mount it as a virtual drive then open it as a DVD or SVCD in
    your software DVD player. To do so install Daemon-tools, use version
    3.46 not the later version 4.XX

    Click on the red icon after reboot and select the .nrg file, then open
    the new virtual drive with the player.

    NRG is a Nero burning rom file ,just mount it in Alcohol
    120%,Gamejack,Daemon 0r any Virtual drive progam that excepts Nero
    files or rip it open with something like Winimage ISO buster,WINISO
    but not sure if they will do Nero files .play with VLC Media Player
    ,BS player,Win DVD,Dvix or what ever media player works for you.
