Hey guys I have a problem. I've downloaded a .img file and when I open it with Nero Burning Rom to burn the image to a CD.
(i.e the contents of the image go onto a CD, so the CD I'm burning is an Exact duplicate of the image) I get errors.

All nero will tell me is that with .bin files "Nero cannot open the image".
With .img files it will open up and ask me do I want to save the image as a .nrg file. If I say yes and save it, all it does is save a duplicate of the .img but instead I have a .nrg too.

I actually want to burn these to a CD but the option isn't there.
Does anyone know why?

Thanks for any help.

You guys might say the image is corrupt but its not. Other people on the forum where I got the image were able to burn with Nero...

Hi Indeceseant,

please try the following steps to burn the image file. Open Nero BurningRom, close the "New Compilation" window and select "Recorder -> Burn Image". Could you burn your image file?

Hi Indeceseant,

Nero supports burning NRG, ISO, BIN, and CUE images, not IMG image files. Do you have that in BIN/CUE file format?

Regards,

Craig

How can I get Nero 9 to burn an ISO file? I'm using Windows XP

I have exactly the same problem as the original poster. It's just ridiculous. I wanted to burn an NRG file that Nero created onto a blank cd-r. The image file size is 691mb and everytime I try to burn this to a cd -r Nero comes up with a bloody "Save Image File" window! What the heck is wrong here????? I've tried several brands of blank cd-r's too.

This is a Vista 64bit OS with the latest Nero software.

Hi painless187,

It seems that you have the Image Recorder selected.

Follow this steps, this should work:

- Open Nero Burning ROM

- Cancel the first "new Compilation" window.

- Under "Choose Recorder" select your recorder and not the Image Recorder

- Then select "File" -> "Open" -> "Image File".

- Select the nrg file and click ok.

- The "Burn Compilation" window will open and will indicate "CD Image"

- Click on "Burn".

- Now the "Save Image File" window should not appear anymore as you have selected your recorder to burn this image.

Did this help?

Regards,

Okay, a .cue file contains information about the image file and information about the path where it is located.

The path information could be the relative or the complete path.

It is possible to open the .cue with a normal text editor.

The first line contains the path.

Example:

FILE "/home/username/download/example.bin" BINARY

In this case the example.bin must belocated in the folder "/home/username/download/".

If you move it, it is not possible to burn it, because Nero cannot find the .bin file. But you can edit the .cue file to:

FILE "example.bin" BINARY

Now, the .cue and .bin file must only be located in the same folder. Now you can move the files together into another folder without any problems.

Very nice instructions. Since my initial post I have uninstalled Nero Linux since I was not able to have any success. I will install it again and give your method a shot. Thanks!
