Is the .img format only for Linux ? I want to open some just to browse the files, open some, etc. I have a program to do it but it doesn't work on Windows 7. Nothing seems to do it. Power Iso doesn't.

Then I guess it is not an image file or there is something wrong with the file

Macrium Reflect generates backups as .img files...I suspect that they are not the only developer that does such and I suspect that you would need the program which created the file to open it..

From that page I see there is a difference between .img files created from CD/DVD and from hard drives. These are .img files from an Android ROM that I want to modify. I guess that would be a hard drive.

IMG files typically contain a clone of a disk's/disc's sectors. PowerISO does support these IMGs, but remember IMGs just contain a dump of a disk (or partition) or a disc, so the filesystem(s) being used on any partition(s) within must be supported.

I think it will work in Linux because Android is a version of Linux. I'm trying to install Linux on an extra hard drive right now. I will post here if I get it to work on Linux.
