I believe I have posted in the correct area, please forgive me if I did not. I also searched this topic and have found no clear answer.

I have read that you can change a .toast file to a .iso simply by renaming the extension. Is this true? Has anyone used this method or is there a better way?

There is a long explanation, but long story short I need to burn a .toast image on my windows machine as my mac is too old and is not equipped with a dvd burner or any converting software that I can find.

I think you can. You could always convert it to iso via disk utility if it doesnt. Or with any to iso.

If you find a post helpful, don't forget to use the reputation system (top right of post.)

Try and see? I'm sure it works, but trying won't damage anything.

That is correct. .toast can be renamed to .iso. Also .iso can be renamed to .toast

However .dmg cannot be renamed to .iso (FWIW)
