How can I burn an ".nrg" image file with K3b?


Hello guys, how can I get K3b to burn an .nrg (Nero) image file as an image? Is there a plugin that I must use? I really need to burn this iso.

You could first try to burn a .nrg file from the command line w/ cdrecord. Also, you could convert it using some other software...

nrg2iso not needed, "dd' is enough ( post #8)

I looked at the source of nrg2iso a guess what:

it simply skips first 300kB (307200 bytes)! So, nrg = 300kB + iso. That means you don't need the nrg2iso (and C compiler to build it ), enough is dd:

'dd bs=1k if=image.nrg of=image.iso skip=300'

:-))

the nrg2iso program has only the advantage: it first checks, if input file is not already iso format. :-)

but i didn't need C compiler, just dd.

good luck!

What is dd? What did you use to convert? The software from that link?

No, you have to put the location of the iso in there where it says "image.iso" "image.nrg" Just replace those values with the location of the file you want to convert. Example

/home/you/myfavapp.nrg

Confused me too. From what I gather, it looks like a Unix command, so it is something you don't do in K3b.

So open up a terminal/console/shell (konsole) window and type

Code:
dd bs=1k if=image.nrg of=image.iso skip=300
(You'll probably have to change directories to the location of the .nrg file)

Replace image.nrg with then name of your .nrg file (something.nrg), replace of with the name you want your outgoing file to be (something.iso)

Then burn the disc using K3b and the .iso file that you just created.
