AnyToISO is the all-in-one solution to create ISO files from everything: from other images, from CD/DVD/Blue-ray disk, from local folders. Moreover it can extract almost any type of CD/DVD image file found in Internet.
The main problem it solves is familiar to many computer users. Many programs can create a disk image in its own format. This is especially true for commercial products. For example, in order to burn a NRG image on a disk you need only original Nero program.
With AnyToISO you can mount any CD/DVD image found in Internet to your Parallels/VMWare virtual machine or burn it on an optical disk after conversion to ISO.
AnyToISO is available in two editions: Lite and Pro (Professional). Lite version is totally free but it cannot deal with files greater than a normal CD size (870 MB). In order to work with DVD/Blue-ray images one should upgrade to a Pro version. Pro version customers have the highest priority level in technical support. Windows version of AnyToISO can also be portable.
Information about ISO Format
An ISO file, often called an ISO image, is in fact an "image" of an entire CD or DVD. The entire contents of a disc can be perfectly represented in a single ISO file. This format is supported by many software vendors. ISO image files typically have a file extension of .iso. The name ISO is taken from the ISO 9660 file system used with CD-ROM media, but an ISO image can also contain a UDF file system since UDF is backward-compatible with ISO 9660. Apple Inc. also stores its own HFS+ file system in ISO images.
