How to open NRI file?

The most common problem when using Nero ISO CD Compilation Format is that a specific NRI is not associated with the program. This is manifested by the fact that NRI files open in unusual applications or do not have an assigned program. This problem can be easily remedied.

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the NRI 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 Nero Multimedia Suite

The first step is to check if the computer has the Nero Multimedia Suite program installed. To do this, enter the name Nero Multimedia Suite into the system search engine. If it is not, installation may solve the problem, as most applications create file associations during installation. Later in this article you will find a list of programs that can open NRI files.

Programs to open NRI file

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

Step 2. Create association of Nero Multimedia Suite with NRI files

However, it may happen that the application itself does not cause the NRI file to open in the Nero Multimedia Suite 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. 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. Checking the "Always use the selected program ..." box will permanently associate the NRI file with the Nero Multimedia Suite program.

Step 3. Update Nero Multimedia Suite to the latest version

If, however, after binding Nero Multimedia Suite with Nero ISO CD Compilation Format there were still problems, you should update the program to the latest version. Some applications allow you to update from the program level, and for others you need to download the installer from the Nero AG page and install.

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

The problem may also be with the file itself if the above steps don't work. File problems can be divided into the following:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This suggests truncating the NRI file contents when downloading or copying. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. Perform a virus scan using available and up-to-date anti-virus software. Some antivirus vendors also provide free online scanners. However, it is important to scan the entire system, not only the file NRI or the program directory. Sometimes virus-infected NRI files cannot be recovered, so make a backup in advance.
Older version of NRI file may not always be supported by the latest software version. These problems are known and are often very easy to fix using the software developers's website.
There can be many reasons for the failure. Depending on the type of file, it is necessary to repair it accordingly. Some programs offer the option of recovering data from damaged NRI files. The easiest way is to restore the file from a backup, if there is one, or contact Nero
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted file NRI except for the special designation, works normally, but only on the device where it was encrypted, before transferring it to another machine, decryption is required.
The operating system protects files in some locations (e.g. the root of the system partition) against unauthorized access. The problem is only writing to the file, not reading it. If possible, you can try to move the NRI file to another location.
This problem only occurs with more complex files. In this case, the NRI file is blocked by the first application to open it. Running programs (including those in the background) should be verified. Sometimes you have to wait for the session to the file NRI to close. Antivirus programs or a backup being made may lock the file for a while without the user's knowledge. If nothing helps, please reset the device.
