Hello all. After several hours, I've had to give up with this problem.

I have a movie file of type .UIF

After extracting it, I tried to use MagicISO to convert it to an .iso image file for burning to disc. Clicking 'File' - 'Save to...' - I managed to get this .UIF file to show up as an .iso file.

I then opened my DeepBurner, and clicked "Burn ISO image" ... and imported the .iso image file. Clicked "BURN".

All went well... the DVD-R disc was ejected, with a notice saying 'successful burn'.

But the disc won't play in my PC or in my standalone DVD Player.

I've tried ConvertXtoDVD... it won't do the job.

I'm stumped.

Thanks for any help

.UIF - Magic ISO Universal Image Format File

MagicISO is a CD/DVD image file creating / editing / extracting tool. It can open / create / edit / extract CD/DVD image files, and it can convert bin to iso and back. Universal Image Format (UIF) is a compression image file format for backing up CD/DVDs. MagicISO has a freeware program called MagicDisk that can open UIF files on Windows computers. For the Mac, you have to convert the file to ISO format and the tool UIF2ISO promises to do that by simply dropping the UIF file onto the tool. Once converted, the file can be opened or burned. .....

I've downloaded and installed 'MagicDisk' - only to find it's a Trojan Horse for getting the unwary to install a non-free registry cleaner called 'Uniblue Registry Booster'.

And it won't let me uninstall it...
