A ROM file is a file that contains a copy of the ROM for a hardware device. It is commonly used for software emulation or for updating the firmware on a certain device.

If it is used for emulation, the file often enables older operating system (OS) software to be run on newer Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Since ROM files are used for different purposes they may use different file formatting. Therefore, a ROM used by one program may not be compatible with another program.
