Opening V64 files

Did your computer fail to open a V64 file? We explain what V64 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your V64 files.

What is a V64 file?

Files that contain the .v64 file extension are normally ROM files that have been created from a Nintendo 64 ROM game cartridge.

If a user copies a Nintendo 64 came cartridge into a computer file using the Doctor 64 software application, the game file will be saved with the .v64 extension.

The V64 files allow users to play popular Nintendo 64 games without the need for a Nintendo 64 gaming device. However, the user cannot play the game on his or her computer without a proper N64 emulation application.

V64 files are compatible with both Mac and PC computers as long as the proper game emulation software is installed.

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.
