The .ROM file extension is associated with ROM emulation files or update files. These are generally images (or, in very simple terms, duplicates) of the information contained on read-only video game cartridges or on computer chips and read using bespoke ROM device readers specific to the device being read. These ROM images are then played on PCs using emulations software.. Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair ROM file extension association errors.
