Opening FW files

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

What is a FW file?

The .fw file extension is most commonly associated with firmware update files. The FW files store the firmware update data that is used to update the firmware of an associated hardware device. Camcorders, digital cameras and other media devices often use the FW file format. These update files can be transferred to the proper device using a USB connection or a memory card.

The .fw file extension is also used for FrameWork database files.
