Opening NRW files

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

What is a NRW file?

Files with the .nrw extension are most commonly associated with Nikon COOLPIX and digital SLR cameras. The NRW files contain raw images that have been created with the cameras. These cameras save the image files in a raw, uncompressed format. The NRW file extension is similar to the NEF file format, but NRW files can support Windows Imaging Component functions.

The .nrw file extension is also used for Nero CD-ROM (WMA) compilation 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.
