.P00 File Extension

C64 emulator file

Question: What is an P00 File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an P00 file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an P00 file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .P00 extension are known as C64 emulator files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the P00 extension, please let us know.

How to open a P00 file:

The best way to open an P00 file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the P00 file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the P00 file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

The P00 file format is indeed used to emulate hard drive content for Commodore computers such as the Commodore 64, PET, CBM, Vic-20, and Amiga.

A popular emulator that uses them is VICE. In VICE, you set up a folder as your virtual hard drive. Then when you are running the emulated Commodore computer within VICE, and you save files, then they show up as P00 files in that folder. You can move them around in your computer and then open them in another folder in VICE. So they seamlessly integrate your real system and your virtual one.

I do not know how to open them, though, except for in the emulated system.
