Tip of the Day: Convert NRG Images to ISO

There are two easy to use tools for converting NRG (a file format used for CD images by the Nero Burning ROM application) to ISO: nrg2iso and iat.

To install them on Ubuntu, type:

sudo apt-get install nrg2iso iat

Use nrg2iso like this:

nrg2iso cd_image.nrg cd_image.iso

And for iat:

iat cd_image.nrg cd_image.iso

iat supports many CD file formats, including ISO, NRG, BIN and MDF.

OK, nrg2iso created an ISO image file, but I cannot figure out how to mount it. I've tried the following:

mount -o loop filename.iso /mnt/cd

mount: you must specify the filesystem type

mount -t iso9660 -o loop filename.iso /mnt/cd
mount -t udf -o loop filename.iso /mnt/cd

I get the following error message:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop1,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
