If you have come across a file that you thought was the program you were looking for only to find out that is ends with an extension UIF, do not fret. UIF, which means Universal Image Format is a powerful compression image file format for backuping CD/DVD. Most people are used to the file extension ISO which, in a way acts like how DMG file works in Mac OS. To convert a UIF file to ISO, I use UIF2ISO4MAC, a program byy Torsten Curdt which is based on the command line tool from Luigi Auriemma.
To use the program is pretty simple. Just open the UIF file and it will convert it automatically to ISO format with the same filename. It’s that easy! Then, when you have the ISO file you can burn it to CD or DVD.
