File Extension ROM

.ROM File

File extension: ROM
File type: Read Only Memory Image

Notes about the ROM file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The ROM file type is primarily associated with 'Read Only Memory Image'. Various emulators and hardware upgrades use this extension. You need a flash program that is usually available from your motherboard manufacturer's Website. Do not flash a BIOS unless you know you have the image for your motherboard. Flashing the wrong image could disable your computer.
