Hi,

Anyone knows about a tool for extracting files from a *.img file?

rename the file to .iso and then, try to mount the iso file (if not compressed, it could work)

IIRC, DFsee can handle img files.

Unfortunately trying to mount the img results in error "Image file is not in ISO format".
DFSee seems to create *.imz files, don't know if the are the same as *.img. Don't see any option to extract files and
since DFSee is an advanced tool I don't take the risk to test things I know too little about.

Have you tried to unzip the img file, then mount it?

Hi

Did you try with 7z ?

7z x name.img

Thanks, I didn't even think of 7z.
IMG is not listed as supported on 7-zip.org but it did work under win10, will check OS/2 version later.

Hi

- I tried with ArcaOS Archive Tool (Zippy) and it does not open .IMG diskette images files.
- 7z x name.img worked for me in ArcaOS (FYI: yum install p7zip)
- For Windows I use WinImage (Shareware).

Img files are very hard to work with, because of multiple format.

1.  Winimage site has an extract, as freeware, go for v 2.1, it has separate DOS Win32 vers.
2.  Check the magic at the beginning the disk.
3.  OS2HDD will extract DSKF format to a directory target\lable\contents.

You should try EMT4PM as it is designed for opening disk images - it is an OS/2 program.
