What is the difference between .nrg and .iso formats?

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index ... grp_user=2

I have come across the format .iso more than the .nrg while searching for Linux live CD. But when I use Nero to backup a DVD as an image is stored in .nrg formats. Is there any difference between the two types of extensions...... can some one help me??

MY ANSWER

NRG (file format) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A .nrg file is a proprietary CD image file format used by Nero Burning ROM, a utility suite made by Nero AG, to create and burn ISO 9660 CD images. ...

ISO is the most common. A computer operating system on a CD/DVD or USB Drive thumb drive is generally called an ISO Image kind of like "system snapshot" in Windows System Restore or other restore operations.

The difference is the Nero software and apparently the only one to use that extension.
