Opening RDB files

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

What is a RDB file?

The .rdb file extension is most commonly associated with N64 ROM database files. These files contain a list of games created for Nintendo 64 emulation applications. The RDB files do not contain the actual game files themselves. They only contain a database of referenced N64 ROM game files.

The .rdb file extension is also used for Darkbot random database files, Gear CD suite files, Oracle database root files, Redis database files, TrueVector rules database files, Value Navigator database files and Roxio Retrospect backup set 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.
