converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

I have downloaded a .nrg which is nero disk image to work with the Parallels (I am working on windows Xp. I have taken the legal key through the msdn subscription but not getting any method to download the iso of the site since its completed through a down-loader (.exe)). Parallels however would not mount the downloaded file . Before some times, I had a same issue that I have monitored to convert the file to .dmg, but I am unable to find any way to perform that with .nrg files.

Anyone have done something like this ..?

Re: converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

In this case, You have to take the support of an ISO file if you really need to manipulate or burn it on a mac. The BIN file are also applicable to perform this and as well as the zip variety. You are mostly going to download different file unless you can pick up a Windows machine to browse it up. If you are able
to go like this then it would probably be simpler just to download from MSDN though.

Re: converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

If you are going in this way then let me suggest you that if nrg is just a single session ISO disk image, then you can just cut out the first some limited kb with dd that would be done from the Terminal.app as follows -

Code:
dd if=image.nrg of=cdrom.iso bs=512 skip=600

Re: converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

Hello everyone ,
One of my friend sent me a .nrg file. this is one of the proprietary file from the Nero disk burner software. I have monitored to download an application named as nrg2iso and after that I have just converted them into an iso file which is also treated as the image file, however I haven't been able to convert it into the dmg file then I can be able to mount it. I have tried the hdiutil command but received the error message as :

Code:
tcsh: Ambiguous input redirect.
Can somebody help me to convert the iso into a dmg?I will be so thankful to you ...

Re: converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

You are going to well, whatever you wanted to do but one thing you are just missing here, As you know , there is not any inbuilt provided utility that can allow you to be able to convert the files in different format , you have to go first for conversion of the files in the proper format and then go ahead for anything ..Just download the appropriate converter for this task..

NOTE : You don't require to convert .iso files to mount them. MacOS X mounts .iso images just well".

Re: converting .NRG files into ISO and DMG

MattyBoy, I am not getting your point, whatever you suggested above seems very complex. I am getting myself to understand actually , how exactly do I use the Terminal.app with proper estimation with such code and my dvd.nrg? Please make some more lights on such topic . I am still running with the problem,please suggest some appropriate fix for this

You should have to Go for the Applications / utilities and then double click on Terminal to launch the terminal window. From such command line section,commonly type out the dd command as I have done in my previous psot . It will copy the .nrg file to the .iso file releasing the number of bites after skip=
