I don't know what kind of file that is, but as long as it contains a filesystem image, you can mount it using the loopback device.

If the image files is in your home folder, just make a new folder then mount the image to it

mkdir foldername
mount imagename.ngr foldername -o loop

Hope this helps

I don't think you are using using the right filesystem type. I am not sure but you may try iso9660 instead of fat32 or ext3.

I have just read that in order to mount a cdrom image you should convert it into iso format. So you may try to convert your NRG file to an standart ISO file.

http://www.infoanarchy.org/wiki/inde...nversion_Tools

Here you can find a way to convert your file to an .iso image.

http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11577
This is another site showing mounting cdrom images.

ok obviously has to be a .iso file to mount, sorry never had to mount a nero image before. I'm not sure how hard it is to convert a .nrg file to an .iso, if that's too much trouble, maybe burn the .nrg file with a windoze machine, then use K3B to create an .iso file from the cd and then mount it.

It shouldn't have to be an .iso, necessarily; I've mounted ext2 and other filesystem images using loopback with no problem. But I also don't know if this Nero thing is even a filesystem; it could just be some structure that somehow holds all the files, but isn't a filesystem (like a .zip archive, sorta). I really don't know, though; see if you can do some research about whether it's an actual filesystem, and if so, what kind.

If it's _not_ a filesystem, then you may be able to open it some other way. If it's an archive of some kind, for example, you might just be able to extract the files you need.
