    I have a .nrg file which I want to burn to create the image of a CD for a backup.

    When I double click on it, Ahead Nero says:

    "Unfortunately your source CD has a special format which cannot be written. Sorry, but copying must be aborted here"

    Please help. I am using Ahead Nero version 5.5.9.6

    I'm not a Nero guru so try Nero 6.3.0.2 and see if you encounter the same error m8.

    It works fine if I extract the files manually with UltraISO or WINISO.

    I am sorry I cannot be of more help, but I think that the .nrg file extension is used only for one or two burning programs. I think one of them might be WinIso, but am not positive. I am pretty sure though that you have an image file burnt in a particular burning program; all you need now is to find the program.

    Good luck.

    EDIT- I also thought .nrg are associated with Nero, so try the most current Nero._X_X_X_X_X_[small]Let's go OILERS!![/small]

    Enable show hidden files (folder tab menu) and burn the extracted files as data.

    A Try this, instead of double clicking on the NRG file.

    1. Open Nero
    2. Close the silly New Compilation dialog box
    3. If you are using Nero5, File --> Burn Image --> Select the NRG file. If you are using Nero6 then Recorder --> Burn Image --> Select the NRG file

    B Something else you can try is to change the burn mode from Track-at-Once to Disc-At-Once or something.

    C Last case, open the NRG file up with CDMage (Mode1/2048 if it asks you). File --> Save As and give it a name. CDMage will create a BIN/CUE file for you and you can burn the that the same was a in A but just select the CUE file insead.
