How To Convert CUE/BIN, NRG, IMG, MDF Files to ISO Files on Ubuntu Linux

Do you have problems burning NRG, IMG, CUE/BIN, MDF files to a CD? It is simpler burning a ISO file to a CD, don't you think? This article will show you how to convert a NRG, IMG, CUE/BIN or MDF file to a ISO file.

Note: You'll need the universe repository enabled (check this article). 

Step 1

We need the software used on this article: bchunk (CUE/BIN to ISO), ccd2iso (IMG to ISO), mdf2iso (MDF to ISO) and nrg2iso (NRG to ISO), so open a terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install bchunk ccd2iso mdf2iso nrg2iso

Now you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2

Here's what to do to convert from...

CUE/BIN to ISO
: Open a terminal, go to the folder that the CUE/BIN file is located and type:

bchunk filename.bin filename.cue filename.iso

NRG to ISO: Open a terminal, go to the folder that the CUE/BIN file is located and type:

nrg2iso filename.nrg filename.iso

IMG to ISO
: Open a terminal, go to the folder that the CUE/BIN file is located and type:

ccd2iso filename.img filename.iso

MDF to ISO: Open a terminal, go to the folder that the CUE/BIN file is located and type:

mdf2iso filename.mdf filename.iso


Now you can easily burn the generated ISO file to a CD.
