Virtual Disk Support

27 Feb 2014, 19:23

I would like to have support for the following virtual disks file formats to be converted to ISO:

*.vhd
*.vmdk
*.vdi

Is this possible? Please consider it.

Thanks for the proposal but I'm afraid these formats won't be supported, as they're not optical media images. Can you a scenario when such conversion would be required?

When we say conversion we mean:

*.vhd to *.iso
*.vmdk to *.iso
*.vdi to *.iso

Finding an application to simply "mount" a virtual drive has been unsuccessful and there are not many options out there. I have not found one yet that is up to date and that works on current Maverick or Mountain Lion.

I understand that these are not optical media but neither is are my USB thumb drives. I use your program to systematically backup my thumb drives to ISO so I can easily mount them in the future when needed.

I wanted these file formats to be supported so that I can back up my data on my virtual machines to ISO format so that I can mount it easily in the future.
