Convert Nero *.NRG Files Into The More Common *.ISO Format


If you don't own Nero, here is a solution for Mac and Windows users which will enable you to easily burn the Roland L‑CD1 Image file found at Rutger Verberkmoes' page "Roland L‑CD1 disk image". The file is a Nero DAO (Disc At Once) Image file with 1 session. It's not a standard *.ISO file. It contains Nero specific "garbage" characters at the beginning. A freeware utility called AnyToISO will convert a Nero *.NRG file into the more commonly used *.ISO format. After converting the *.NRG file to *.ISO, you can burn a CD-ROM using commands which are already built-in to Mac OS X (Terminal Window App) or Windows 7 (Explorer)

     Note: If you want to burn a different *.iso file, start at Step #7 and substitute your own *.iso filename
  1. Download l-cd1-nrg.wav (it's shown as L-CD1.nrg at the top of Rutger's page)

  2. Rename it to l-cd1-nrg.zip and then unzip it (The uncompressed file will be named L-CD1.nrg)

  3. Download and run the free App called AnyToISO.app - http://www.crystalidea.com/anytoiso

  4. Click the tab for "File Extract/Convert to ISO" and press the radio button for "Convert To ISO Image"

  5. For "Source image/archive file", click the "Open image" button and select L-CD1.nrg

  6. Click the "Convert!" button and the converted file will be named L-CD1.iso

  7. Copy the new L-CD1.iso file onto the Desktop

  8. Place a blank 700MB CD-R disc into the CD drive (Anything larger will not work)

  9. Open a Terminal window (Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app)

  10. At the command prompt type:
    • cd Desktop (press the Return key)
    • hdiutil burn L-CD1.iso (press the Return key)
    •  
    • The Terminal window will display the following and after a few minutes of burning
    • and verifying, you will have a new Roland L-CD1 CD-ROM ready to rock;
    • Preparing data for burn.... Opening session.... Opening track

WINDOWS      
I've never been able to get the built-in Windows Disc Image Burner utility to burn *.iso images reliably. I recommend a freeware utility called Free ISO Burner because it's a simple, no frills, stand-alone program which does not require any software installation. It's so portable that you can even run it from a USB flash drive if you want to. It works with Windows XP / 2003 / Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8. You can download the program from freeisoburner.com

Be sure to use a blank 700MB CD-R disc for burning (Anything larger will not work)
Operating System Used To Test Programs Was Windows 7 (32-Bit)
