    windows backup convert on linux

    OK so i have found this old DVD that I've forgotten about with a backup of photos that I've created YEARS ago on a windows PC with program Nero.
    Now if i pop this disk into the DVD drive i cant do anything with it ,it seems it needs the Nero program again to restore the files.
    Is there anything on Linux i can use to restore the backup or must i do it on a windows PC ?


    Thanks!

    A DVD made with Nero says nothing about the actual content.

    Nero can do a data DVD with the photo files within and that would be readable in any OS.

    What are the file formats there? What do you see in Files?

    Try renaming the .nco extension to something like .zip.
    Then try extracting it.
    try for one, then if successful try for all.
    Ubuntu file roller should be installed with zip support, if not you can always try and install and use the unzip package.

    It's a Nero BackItUp proprietary format.

    Try the suggestion above first because it's the simplest. It may not work though.
    Next try installing the full (GUI) 7-Zip utility and then try opening the nba/nco files with it. This suggestion comes from this old question at Nero forum.
