What is RDG file?

The file with the extension RDG is the Video Files file type. It was designed by TechSmith Corporation. In addition to this file, the Video Files category includes 546 related files. Morae Recorded Video is most often found on 1 operating systems. The file will work on Windows systems, unfortunately not on others. It is recommended to use Morae to handle this file. This is a program created by TechSmith Corporation.

How to open RDG file?

An often recurring problem with Morae Recorded Video is that RDG is not associated with the correct program file. Thus, when you open RDG, the program selection wizard or some other program starts. How to solve such a problem?

The first thing you should do is just "doubleclick" on the RDG 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 Morae

The first step is to check if the computer has the Morae program installed. The easiest method is to use the system search engine by entering the program name Morae in it. If we do not have this program, it is worth installing it, as it will help you automatically associate the file RDG with Morae. Below is a list of programs that support the file RDG.

Programs to open RDG file

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

Step 2. Create association of Morae with RDG files

If, despite the installed application, the RDG file does not start in the Morae application, you must create a file association. This option is available from the level of Properties of a specific file available in the context menu. Information about the file and the program that the file is associated with are available here. 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. The "always use the selected program ..." field will set the Morae application as the default for handling the RDG file.

Step 3. Update Morae to the latest version

The fault may also lie with the Morae program, it is possible that Morae Recorded Video requires a newer version of the program. This can be done using the application (if it provides such options) or from the TechSmith Corporation website and install the latest version.

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

The problem may also be with the file itself if the above steps don't work. The most common file problems are:

Very often, the file may be size 0 or incomplete. This is most often caused by a problem while downloading the RDG file. The only repair option is to download the file again.
The operating system may be infected with a computer virus. A virus scan using an up-to-date antivirus program should fix the problem. If this is not possible, you can use the online scanner. The scan should cover the entire computer, not only the RDG file that we want to open. Sometimes virus-infected RDG files cannot be recovered, so make a backup in advance.
Older version of RDG 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.
There can be many reasons for the failure. The repair method must be adapted to the type of file and damage. Some programs offer the ability to automatically repair RDG file corruption. The easiest way to restore the file is from a backup or by contacting TechSmith Corporation, but this one can be expensive. Not all damage can be reversed.
When reading, a message appears that the file was encrypted or corrupted. The encrypted RDG 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 of the system directories are excluded from modification. The problem is only writing to the file, not reading it. If possible, you can try to move the RDG file to another location.
This problem only occurs with more complex files. You may find that another program you are using is preventing you from working with the file. Closing other programs should help. If the error persists after closing other programs, wait for a while. However, some background programs may block the RDG file while scanning. If this does not work either, restart the device.
