I am trying to convert an .nrg file into an .iso file using Power ISO, but it shows me a message saying that both files are similar, and there's no need to convert. What do I do and how do I convert the file?

If you are having problems converting the .NRG image into an .ISO file, you may, first, attempt to go around the conversion process. You should try to open the .NRG file as an archive, with WinRAR, and then transfer its contents into your desired .ISO image.

Another way you might proceed is to try using some other convenient applications designed for this very purpose. WinISO offers a comprehensive, professional solution in this sense, but the program is expensive, and it includes several functions that extend beyond your immediate purpose. You may find some more information on this program at the following URL:

On the other hand, another widely used application that might come to your aid is nrg2iso The program is available for free, and it was created specifically for this sole purpose, so you need not worry about unnecessary functional complications.
