Although NRG can store multiple disc types, the NRG format is not popular with disc burners and CD image editors. Hence, many people would like to convert NRG to ISO for compatibility with more programs. This article shares two simple ways to do that. Let's go for it!
Both NRG and ISO are common disc image files. Here, we simply summarize the differences between them:
1. ISO, as a global standard, is a generic reliable image file format while NRG is exclusive to Nero Burning ROM, the famous disk burning software.
