    i have an .nrg file and i have no idea how to open it.

    i tried searching and all i got was download toast and you can (convert?) from there.

    i have toast now.
    but what do i do?

    that was the thread were i got the info to use toast.
    but what do i do.

    i guess i should be more specific.
    i tried saving the item as a disc image.
    but all that does is let me mount the disc image and then that .nrg file is still there.
    how do i actually open it.

    You open in Nero and then you convert it to a DMG or ISO.

    NRG files can be opened on a MAC via Toast

    If you have Toast installed, .NRG will default to that program. Then you save as disc image and you basically have a mounted ISO.

    THen you can see all its internal elements just like an iso!

    --Details: In toast, under the image file tab you should select the nrg file - or open the NRG file with toast, - then either press the "mount" button or "save as disc image"
    I forget which one, but thats how you open its contents.

    Oh I hadnt noticed you did that.
    Well, you can copy all the contents of it into another folder and make it an iso (Disk Utility).

    but if its an NRG originally, then by default isnt the program made for PC?

    On my computer, NRG files open with Crossover - but unless I need to extract a piece from it, it can't run on the mac anyways.
