    How do I burn a .img file?

    Someone sent me a .img file to burn to CD. I am just not sure what program to use to burn it. I usually use Nero for all my burning needs and I think Nero will burn this file, but I thought maybe I should ask if anyone new of a program that would do it in an easier fashion than Nero would. If you happen to know please post

    Ok, maybe I'm wrong. I just read somewhere that you can change the .img extension to .iso and it will help it to work in some CD burning programs.

    thats not specifically an ez-cd file, but just an image file.
    cant get much easier in nero my friend.

    go to "file", then "burn image"

    voila. you will have a cd in minutes.

    i know cheezy cd creator can burn images as well.

    SD

    ps. what is the image anyhow?

    Thanks for the help guys,

    I did just let Nero go ahead and burn it. It worked great thanks.

    P.S. If I told you what the image was I would be breaking TechIMO rules

    Angry What am I doing wrong?

    I am using Nero 5.5.9.0, and when I try to burn the .img file, it responds by telling me - "unexpected file format". I know the file is a CloneCD image file, and I have the .CCD and .SUB files to go with it. I would use CloneCD, but it doesn't work on my Pioneer DVR-A03. I would greatly appreciate any assistance that can be given. I have actually tried it with 2 different .img files with no success.

    Thanks.

    I don't think you can burn a CloneCD .img file in anything but CloneCD, those other files are nessacry to get it to work.

    Actually that's not true. You can burn just bout any file in Nero, this is especially true with Image Files. First you'll need to know if the specifications for the CD you will be burning. I'm not sure how to find out, but once you find out all we do is make a Cue file to use with the image file to burn in Nero.

    The information you need is which mode the CD was encoded in, so the software can burn the image correctly. It will either be MODE1 or MODE2. You also need to know the correct Byte Size, the usual standards on most CDs are 2048 and 2352. Most Software is written with MODE1/2352. If the CD has a mulitsession on it chances are it is encoded in MODE2. I'm not sure if this information is entirely important or not, but is needed to burn successfully. Once you have it proceed to the next part.

    To create a Cue file (this information is good for use with any cue file whether it concerns Binary [.bin] ISO [.iso] or Image [.img] or any other ISO file.) simply open any text editor.

    In this help session, we'll go ahead and use Windows Notepad, but any Text Editor is fine.

    Step 1: Open Windows Notepad.
    Step 2: Knowing the correct information, for our .cue file we will say the information for the image is MODE1/2352.
    Step 3: Type the following information to make your .cue file:

    FILE "Name_of_File.img" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    Step 4: Make sure to write it exactly as it appears above, spaces, quotations and all. Only change the info to correspond with your CD. So if it's MODE 2 change to MODE2/2352 no spaces. If the byte size is 2048 then change that number.
    Step 5: Change the file name to the name of your file, do not put directory structure in the file name.

    Yes - FILE "Name_of_File.img" BINARY
    No - FILE "C:\My Documents\Name_of_File.img" BINARY

    Step 5: This is important to remember. This is the number 1 reason for why people get corrupted CDs and think the files are corrupted, it has nothing to do with corruption, and everything to do with the structure. So if the cue file has a directory structure then that file must reside where it says otherwise it will get corrupted. So to avoid this, just have the image and cue file in the same folder and just input the file name in the cue file minus the directory.

    Step 6: One you input the information below from earlier:

    FILE "Name_of_File.img" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00

    Click on File and Save File. In the drop down box select All Files. Next save your file as Name_of_Image_File.cue
    Step 7: Click Save.

    Step 8: Open Nero, click on File and Burn Image. Select the cue file you just made and burn the image. Your done.

    Here's a useful utility for working with various image file formats. It can also convert most formats and do error checking on all but .iso (the .iso format image doesn't support internal error checks)

    CDmage

    I'll go one better on that and tell ya about WinISO. Does everything CDMage does and more, handles ISO, lets you convert any ISO image into any other type, also lets you make your own ISO from scratch, plus has an internal burner. CDMage is also a good choice, however I have had problems using it and don't always reccomend it, a few of my files have come out corrupted when converting.

    Use Alcohol 120% for it. Alcohol can burn most cd images (iso, bin/cue, nrg, ccd, etc). It can clone cd's to a virtual drive if you don't wanna go thru disc swapping too

    Thumbs up How to Burn IMG Files

    It's actually pretty easy to burn an IMG file.

    Use Dvd Decrypter

    http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

    It's even a free download.

    Instructions:

    Choose (Mode) > (ISO) > (Write) > Browse for your IMG file > Burn

    it was in a .rar archive and had 2 files

    Mac OS 9.0.img (161MB)
    Mac OS 9.0.img.rsrc (11KB)

    what can I do to burn or extract the files?

    YES!!!! 2004, this thread rocks

    Kyle, if I have an .img file that I can't burn, I used www.winiso.com to convert it to an .iso and thats easy to burn.

    Also Winiso can just unpack the files somewhere for you as an alternative.
