Opening SMC files

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

What is a SMC file?

Files that contain the the SMC file extension are normally associated with Nintendo's Super Nintendo gaming system (SNES). The SMC files contain digital image copies of the games that were originally contained within an original SNES game cartridge.

The SMC files that contain these game copies allow the SNES games to be played on a personal computer. In order to play the games, the computer must have the proper game emulator installed.

In some cases, the games that are contained in an SMC file are copyrighted. In other cases, the games may have been released for unrestricted use and are not copyrighted.
