Opening DPG files

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

What is a DPG file?

Files that contain the .dpg file extension are most commonly associated with Nintendo DS movie files. The Nintendo DS system is a portable gaming device that plays games and movies from a Nintendo DS game cartridge.

The DPG file is a container file format that allows a user to play movies on the Nintendo DS gaming system. These DPG movies can also be played on computers if the computer user has installed a DPG-compatible media player.

The Windows application manager also uses the .dpg file suffix. These DPG files contain program group files that have been deleted with the application manager.

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.
