  1. Stupid. Try this:
    ~$ dd if=image.nrg of=image.iso bs=100k skip=3

    Is this really a site for DEBIAN folk?? With tips like that I doubt it.

  2. No no… NRG files DO NOT have a 300kb header. That dd command won’t work. you would want something more like this:

    dd ibs=2048 count=[filesize-156] if=image.nrg of=image.iso
