UltraIso : All-in-1 Image file converter and much more

22 12 2009

I happened to come across this nice liitle piece of software when I was looking for a DVD burner ( a freeware to be specific ) that supports burning DVD images of  ‘.nrg’  format ( which is the properietry format of Nero ). But I came to know that only Nero could handle .nrg files [ and i wasn’t looking for Nero! ]  while all other burning softwares used ‘.ISO’ format which is the standard format for DVD or CD images. One of the search results came up with this software called ‘UltraISO’ which was capable of converting  any Disc image format to another one ( it supports  .BIN, .CUE, .NRG, .ISZ  ,.MDF, .MDS, .IMG and other formats too! ). It can also be used as a virtual drive (just like Daemon Tools or Alcohol ). It has got a nice and neat interface and is pretty easy to work with.

Other features include :
– create Disc images
-burn image files onto Discs
-act as a virtual CD/DVD drive
-image file compression/decompression
-create floppy disc images
-create bootable discs     ,etc.


The only hitch is that its not free.I got a trial version and that was enough for me as I dont plan to convert these image files every other day. Rather, in future, I would go for image files in .ISO format which is supported by all DVD burning softwares! But  for those of you who are really interested, it comes for a mere $ 29.95  😉
