I have a Nero Disk Image(.nrg) File and I would like to mount it on OSX to copy it's contents. I've tried to rename to .iso and to use NRG2ISO with no luck.
Any tips ?

A little googling led me to this thread on MacRumors.com
It appears that if the ISO is a single session CD image you can just knock the first 600 bytes off with a terminal command and it'll be readable as an ISO (change file type to .iso after performing the command).
I'd recommend making a backup of the .nrg file before trying this though!
$ dd if=image.nrg of=cdrom.iso bs=512 skip=600

Had the same experience as the OP. Tried using nrg2iso, tried renaming the file to .iso and also tried the
dd command from that MacRumors thread. Nothing worked.
However, I then found nrg4iso which worked perfectly! The project has been abandoned since 2007 but it still works.
dd variant not work for me. So, i find another one with poweriso:
Use: ./poweriso convert ~/Desktop/image.nrg -o ~/Desktop/image.iso -ot iso
There are not many options on Mac for this purpose. I think AnyToISO is good freemium choice. Its freemium version supports up to 870 MB.
