Both IMG and ISO files are disk images. The files contain not only the data on a disk, but information on how it is stored, making it possible for you to easily burn a disk copy or run the file directly from your hard drive as if it were a CD or DVD. There are plenty of free programs that can read both file types, which cuts out the conversion process. One of these programs is UltraISO, which, in addition to reading many different types of image files, can convert ISO to IMG.


Step 1

Download and install the free trial version of UltraISO. Run the program.
