Editors' review

ISO images, also known as disc images, are archival files found on optical discs like CD-ROMs. Many software publishers support the ISO file standard (.iso), and most CD- and DVD-burning software only works with ISO images and their own image formats. If you have software, presentations, archives, or other data to burn onto optical discs, you'll need to convert files in a wide range of formats into ISO images. AnyToISO from CrystalIdea is just the tool. It converts a wide range of file formats into ISO images, including BIN, MDF, PDI, CDI, NRG, B5I, and IMG files. It supports all the popular CD and DVD formats, and it will also mount any CD or DVD image found online to your Parallels/VMWare virtual machine. It's free, too.

The developer touts AnyToISO's small and nimble size, and with a 4.2MB download for the Windows version, it's certainly not bloated, considering its versatility. It offers a lot for freeware, such as the sort of user interface we love: just a clean, simple, and efficient Windows dialog box with a graphical layout that manages to be almost Spartan and yet attractive at the same time. Using AnyToISO couldn't be easier, which may reflect the fact that it's a larger and more powerful tool that's been pared down to the essentials for freeware.

The free AnyToISO is a "Lite" version of the Pro software, but it's fully functional with no limitations. It supports all recent versions of Windows as well as Mac OS X.

    "Works only with CDs, not DVDs."

    January 04, 2014   |   By ChrisAllen CNET

    Version: AnyToISO 3.5

    Pros

    None------

    Cons

    The program you download will only operate on CDs. It will not do even a single conversion from DVD media, even if the contents are less than a CD could hold. To work with DVDs, you must buy the Pro version. The program description AND the review are inaccurate in a way that makes the download sound more appealing than it is.

    Summary

    A complete and utter waste of time. CNET's review should be changed to reflect the fact that this is tease-ware, severely crippled so that it provides no functionality if the disc you are trying to back up happens to be on DVD media - REGARDLESS of the size of the content.

    "With no limitations...."

    February 22, 2013   |   By TimmyCB

    Version: AnyToISO 3.4.2

    Pros

    Seems very uncluttered and easy to use.

    Cons

    870MB max ISO size in this freeware version....

    Summary

    If it says "no limitations" there should be no limitations!

    "Free ("Lite") version does not support DVDs"

    January 17, 2013   |   By Joe_Newport

    Version: AnyToISO 3.4.2

    Pros

    None - I couldn't use the product.

    Cons

    Free ("Lite") version does not support DVDs.

    Summary

    The CNET staff review on November 10, 2009 states: "The free AnyToISO is a "Lite" version of the Pro software, but it's fully functional with no limitations. It supports all recent versions of Windows as well as Mac OS X." However, when I attempted to create an ISO from a DVD, I encountered this alert: "Lite version of AnyToISO works with CD images only (up to 870 MB). In order to work with larger files (DVD and more) you should Purchase Professional version. You'll obtain the registration code unlocking the software after the purchase."

    "Unique and functional program"

    September 02, 2012   |   By thomas_kn

    Version: AnyToISO 3.4

    Pros

    AnyToIso has been a mainstay for me for several years. It has handled whatever I have thrown at it, quietly, and without complaints. It is easy to forget that it is a product with developers who work hard to provide a good product. I know that there must be many people who are not aware of such a utility as the function is unique.

    Cons

    Batch operations are supported only using command line

    "Product is LITE not full version"

    March 18, 2012   |   By anzucker

    Version: AnyToISO 3.3

    Pros

    Reads CD .dmg file

    Cons

    CNET editors review is WRONG. It is not fully functional. It will not open a .DMG file larger than a CD. They need to reevaluate the program and SAY that there is a fee for the full version!

    "Liars waste my time"

    December 09, 2011   |   By Win7Hater

    Version: AnyToISO 3.2.2

    Pros

    Did not find any.

    Cons

    It would not open a DVD ISO image.

    Summary

    It wont work with files larger than 870mb.
    Wasted my time. Infesting my registry.

    Try searching web for dmg2iso or dmg2img. Download and extract to your folder with the DMG file. Drop the DMG file onto dmg2iso, it will convert to .img.

    It is too bad CNET allows them to do this...

    "Does what it is supposed to do!"

    July 12, 2010   |   By eyessky

    Version: AnyToISO 2.7.2

    Pros

    This is a light and fast program to convert many different image files to one format, ISO file. If you have an ISO image burner and want to burn other image formats that your software does not support, AnyToISO does that nicely.

    Cons

    nothing so far.

    Summary

    Very usefule software doing what it says. It is not an image burning software, but converts other image formats to ISO. I did not find other similar softwares to do this task on the net.
