    how to open .img file?

    hi
    recently i downloaded a file which is in .img file type (naruto.movie.2004.DVDr.img)

    i would like to ask how do i open that file?
    i have searched all the solution but i still cant open the file. i tried using isoBuster but it change the file to .tao file type, which makes me more confused. some suggested i burned it to a dvd but i dont have a dvd burner. is there any solution to it without burning it to a dvd?
    thnks in advance

    file size : 4.2Gb
    os : xp pro

    I believe an img file is similar to an ISO file. It's an image of the original cd/dvd. You can either burn it to cd, or use a program like win iso to open or extract the files. If you burn it you want to "Burn from disk image file". If you just make a data cd and burn the file to the cd you will be no better off than you are now.

    Since you don't have a DVD burner, your best option would be to use Alchohol 120% or Daemon Tools to mount the image on a virtual drive.

    .img is a nero format.

    Winrar will open them I believe.
    Respect it.

    rename it yourfile.iso, and the "your file" is whatever is the original name, and then see what happens

    Win ISO has a convert function, it would let you create an ISO file from the img file. Then you could mount the ISO file.

    That file has too many extensions that could be causing you trouble.

    right click on the img file and open it with winrar. Then extract the two folders in there which should be an audio and a video folder. Winrar will extract them and inside the folders will be located a bunch of vob files. I use dvdshrink(just look it up in google its a freeware prog) and dvd shrink will allow you to burn the files to dvd using nero automatically. Nero will allow you to take out different languages, extras, menus or keep what you want then it will encode it and will automatically burn it to dvdr using nero. Hope that helps.

    Wait here is the easy way to do it. Download dvddecrypter(search google its a free program) once it is downloaded, right click on your img. file and choose burn with dvddecryptor, make sure you have a blank dvd in your dvdburner and your done in 20 or so minutes.......k

    download and install this software... Once installed you can go to my computer and right click a new virtual drive and mount the image file as if it were a cd. You can then watch it most likely using a dvd app or nero showtime if you are up to date with nero.

    If you intended on burning this for use in a dvd player (assuming its an vcd/svcd) You will have to burn it on a DVD-r obviously. Use Nero to burn it; open nero and select your dvd burner from the dropdown at the top and then click 'recorder' in the file menu and choose 'Burn Image'

    Now I would definetally check the 'determine max speed' box and uncheck 'write' for the first run so you dont mess a disc up trying to burn it to fast... look at the log when you hit next and view the speed it finished at. Then go back and uncheck determine speed and check write using one speed lower than what it claimed max to be.

    deamon tool is a great prog if you want to test out your iso or bin/cue files to make sure they work before you burn them to disk. But if you have nero, dl dvddecryptor right click on the img. file and highlight burn to dvd using dvddecryptor. It's just a lot easier then going through the whole nero process.

    This worked for me. Although I applied this technique to another file.
    Thanks
    Good Day!

    Question

    Hi,

    I've also d/led a .img file type (naruto.movie.2004.DVDr.img) and having problem burning out this image file out with nero..

    When i tried to burn the image file with nero, it say:

    The entered block size does not correspond to the imahe length.
    The block size may be wrong. Do you want to correct the value or ignore the problem?

    when i clicked on the Correct, there is a box popped up and ask me to enter the following:

    Type of image: Data Mode 1

    Settings

    Block size (bytes): 2048
    Image header size (bytes): what should i enter here?
    Image trailer size (bytes): What should i enter here?

    any help will be apperciate!!

    Thanks!!
