The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the N3R 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 WV-ASM200

In this case, you should first verify that the WV-ASM200 application is installed on the computer. The easiest method is to use the system search engine by entering the program name WV-ASM200 in it.

Programs to open N3R file

Remember to download programs supporting N3R files only from verified and safe sources. We suggest using the websites of software developers.

Step 2. Create association of WV-ASM200 with N3R files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the N3R file to open in the WV-ASM200 application, but you can set it manually. It is most convenient to call the context menu with the right mouse button and select 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 set the program to handle this type. If there is no software on the list, simply select "Browse" and manually select the directory where the application is installed. However, it is important to check the "Always use the selected program ..." box, this will allow you to permanently associate the N3R file with the WV-ASM200 application.

Step 3. Update WV-ASM200 to the latest version

If, however, after binding WV-ASM200 with Panasonic Video Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version. This can be done using the application (if it provides such options) or from the Panasonic Corporation website and install the latest version.

Step 4. Check for the following problems with the N3R 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. Usually this applies to N3R files downloaded from the Internet in case the download did not finish properly. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. A quick virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should clear up any doubts. Alternatively, you can use the scanners available online. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file N3R or the program directory. However, remember that not every infected N3R file can be recovered, so it is important to take care of regular backups.
Older version of N3R file may not always be supported by the latest software version. On their websites, developers usually offer free solutions to such problems, e.g. in the form of a conversion program or an older version of the program.
The file may be corrupted in a number of ways. Repairing is very dependent on the file type. Sometimes the program itself has options to repair the most popular N3R file corruption. The easiest way is to restore the file from a backup, if there is one, or contact
The program indicates that the file is encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted N3R 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.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. These directories are write-protected to them and it's very hard to fix this problem. Copying the N3R file to another location will fix the problem.
This can happen on a file that does not support multiple access. Some file types can only be opened in one program at a time. Closing other programs should help. If the error persists after closing other programs, wait for a while. Some anti-virus or backup software may occupy the N3R file for a certain period of time. If nothing helps, please reset the device.
