    Hi,
    Thanks for your sharing. I came from a google search.
    I was trying to convert uif format to iso but uif2iso always give me nrg files that i needed to convert again. My original source was some VCDs I backup with MagicISO into uif format. Some of these disc has been trashed.
    Thus, i was trying to find a way to “pipe” uif2iso result to nrg2iso.
    Anyway, the conversion went well, but the resulted nrg and iso files can only be played back on Windows and not Linux Mint 11.
    Interestingly, the iso can be played back on my A.C Ryan media player – which is running some kind of ’embedded’ linux.
    Well, just to share my 2 cents.
