Hi,

If you are talking that you want to make a universal image which will play in all virtual image drive then I don’t think it even possible. Because all image making software are gives their iso image with different extension.

So you can not create an image with all extension at once. That’s why it is not possible.

But there is another way. You can found some image driver making software. They can play any kind of image with any of extension. So my suggestion is if you are not able to make universal image then use a universal image drive for playing all images.

I thought you were just asking about how to make a universal image of an ordinary drive, like DVD-ROM or CD-ROM. Well, if you are talking about your hard drive specifically, making a universal image on hard drive is impossible. Every software in the market that offers hard drive imaging has their own set of image data file.

They do this to maintain their own standards. They have their own sophisticated technology of creating a very accurate and reliable imaging programs. They do this because the hard drive of every computer is the very delicate part of the whole system. This is the part where your valuable data are stored and kept safe.

Unlike CD-ROMs and DVD-ROMs where you can create a universal image of a disk which can be read and used by any CD/DVD burners who allows universal disk imaging. CyberLink’s Power2Go is an example of a program that lets you save disk image in ISO image format (*.iso).

Be cautious in doing disk imaging, you might include a virus in the image.

Scan first your hard drive so as to be sure that it is virus free prior to doing a disk image.
