How to Burn a Nero .NRG to a Flash Drive

An .NRG file is a proprietary type of "Disk Image" file---which is essentially a full copy of a CD burned onto your hard drive as a single file---created by the Nero Burning ROM CD/DVD burner program. Typically, these types of files would be saved somewhere on your hard drive. If, however, you prefer to make the .NRG file a little more portable, you can also save it onto a flash drive just as easily. Afterward, it can either be mounted in a virtual disk drive such as Daemon Tools or burned to a blank CD.
