How to open DPG file?

The most common problem when using Nintendo DS Movie Format is that a specific DPG is not associated with the program. This causes the file DPG to open by system applications not designed for this purpose, or to display a message that there is no associated program. This problem can be easily remedied.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the DPG file icon you want to open. If the operating system has an appropriate application to support it and there is also an association between the file and the program, the file should be opened.

Step 1. Install DPG Converter

The first step is to check if the computer has the DPG Converter program installed. This can be achieved by typing DPG Converter into the operating system search engine. In the absence of an appropriate program, its installation in the vast majority of cases will fix the problem. Below is a list of programs that support the file DPG.

Step 2. Create association of DPG Converter with DPG files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the DPG file to open in the DPG Converter application, but you can set it manually. The association can be created using the drop-down list available by right-clicking on the file and selecting Properties. The window will show, among other things, the type of the file and the information by which the program is used to launch the file. Using the "Change" button we can select the desired program. The program should be visible in the window, otherwise it should be selected manually using the "Browse" button and the program installation directory should be indicated. However, it is important to check the "Always use the selected program ..." box, this will allow you to permanently associate the DPG file with the DPG Converter application.

Step 3. Update DPG Converter to the latest version

If, despite the association of the DPG Converter program with the Nintendo DS Movie Format file, the file still does not open, check the program version and possibly update it to the newest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the DPG file

Of course, it may happen that despite the above steps, the file still does not work. This could be due to the file itself, the cleanest issues are:

The affected file may be 0 KB or smaller than expected. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the DPG file. Downloading the file again should fix the problem.
The computer may have fallen victim to a computer virus or hacker. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the DPG file that we want to open. As a result of the scan, sometimes it is not possible to recover DPG files, which are deleted if there is a backup of this file, then after restoring it, it must also be scanned.
This can happen especially when the program is dynamically developed and the structure of the DPG files changes over time. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
The file may be corrupted in a number of ways. Repairing is very dependent on the file type. Some programs offer the option of recovering data from damaged DPG files.
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted DPG files can be used by the device on which they were encrypted, on any other device it is required to have the appropriate cryptographic key and decrypt the file before its recovery.
Some operating systems do not allow file operations in certain locations, eg in system directories or directly on the system drive. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. If possible, you can try to move the DPG file to another location.
This problem usually affects more complex files. Some file types can only be opened in one program at a time. Running programs (including those in the background) should be verified. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file DPG to close. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the DPG file for a certain period of time. If this does not work either, restart the device.
