Just out of curiousity, how is this any different from running
hdiutil convert -format UDTO -o myisofile, dragging the DMG onto Terminal hitting return and then changing the CDR extension to ISO?

Actually it's no different. However most of us are not proficient (or even familiar) with the Terminal which makes this drag and drop app just perfect.

Strange I created a DMG in MS-DOS format and then used Damge Isolation. I get a file with the extension .iso.cdr that I rename as .iso, but it won't be accepted by Windows XP (inside Parallels).

I tried the same thing and it worked for me. Did you rename it properly (from the Get Info window) or just hide the .cdr extension?

Very easy. Just drag the DMG file onto the app, and it will quickly convert it into an ISO file.

The name for this program is brilliant. I love it.

5 stars all the way.

extremely useful if you want to send your disk image to a windows user. but if your only going to use your image on a mac, stick with dmg - its more functional, at least on the mac os. program works fine and is very fast.

BTW, the program appears to be a droplet. you simply drag and drog your dmg on top of the program.

It won't work in 10.2, just as a FYI.

Downloading it just to view the Readme.txt is worth it. Oh, works as expected.

I think you are talking about Toast image disks (Roxio) that the extension .toast can be changed to .iso. But DMG image disks are different.

I always thought that you can convert .dmg to .iso by just renaming it...

Nope.

I guess that command is pretty much all this program does, but hey, it's helpful!
