Is there a difference between emulators and ROMS?

What is the difference?


Answer by  Advocate (175)

An emulator is a program which lets one system (such as a PC) act as another (such as a Super Nintendo.) A ROM is the image of the original data cartridge, disc, etc. which contains the game data and is used to play the game through an emulator.

Emulators are the programs that run the games; the ROMS are the games themselves. Think of it like a DVD player and a DVD - it's essentially the same relationship here as well.

An emulator and a ROM are two different things and are nothing alike. An emulator simulates other systems and then makes older software compatible with your computer. ROMS are small chips in your computer that store information.
