Opening 500 files

Did your computer fail to open a 500 file? We explain what 500 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your 500 files.

What is a 500 file?

The .500 file extension is most commonly associated with the NetBSD or FreeBSD operating systems. These operating systems are used for x86 compatible and AMD64 compatible architectures. They are derived from the more popular Unix operating system.

The .500 file extension is also used for Tally files, NCBridge NC200/NC400 series network boot software files, Nintendo Famicom Disk System files, Linux files and Pasofami files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
