    1, Find a friend with a PC. Tell him PC is better than mac and ask if you an borrow it for half an hour.
    2, Download MagicISO if he does not have it.
    3, Convert the uif files to iso using tools/convert
    4, Save to a disk/firewire/usb or whatever you may have
    5, Thank your friend and tell him PCs are not that good after all
    6, Use dick utilitys to mount the iso image on your mac
    7, Browse to the quicktime files and view them directly there

    Worked for me....
    I actually copied the files to my movies folders and viewed them with front row.

    Easy Solution for IUF Files

    There are many ways to extract files from the UIF image through Terminal via X11 etc and what not. However for those lacking in experience with script follow these instructions.

    (Works for my Intel based Mac)

    Download CrossOver Mac to execute .exe programs. (30 day trial download)

    Download Magic ISO

    Use CrossOver Mac to Install Magic ISO. (also trial download)

    Use Magic ISO (exe program) to open the IUF file.

    Viola and there you have it.

    This solution is a quick fix for those in need. If you really like CrossOver instead of dishing out 60$ purchase Mac Leopard and use their Windows emulation software pre installed.

    Hope this helped.

    UIF to ISO App!

    Go here for the Application:

    Downloaded and used on a Mac Pro. Great little program and works as advertised. Stay away from Magic ISO and their $30 upsale. No need for a PC.

    This application didn't even exist when this thread was made (or for several months thereafter)! :p

    But it's good to know there's a solution now. :)

    uif2iso4mac ain't a solution for those of us with Power Macs, mine's an eMac, Tiger 10.4.11. :eek:

    It only works for Intel. :(

    I did just figure out that if you transfer the UIF to a PC and use MagicISO to extract the files - they can then be transferred back to the :apple: - I used CDs since I have only small USB drives. I'm content with old school methods and work arounds in general (ipod running through the cassette deck in my car, for example). :p

    .inf and .exe are not working for me, I have that icon that reads "exec" and looks like a screen - anyone know what application I should use to open these or make them run correct?:confused:

    You'll notice that this program comes with a windows executable but also notice it comes with source code.... and a make file.... hmmmmmm

    if you have the development tools installed (they're on the "everything else" disk (disk two) for leopard if you want to install them) then this is easy, just cd to the directory and run the following commands....

    $ cd <then drag and drop the directory for the extracted tool into the terminal window>
    $ make
    $ sudo cp uif2iso /usr/bin/
    $ cd /Directory/With/uif/Files <again, or drag and drop the directory>
    $ uif2iso MyUifFileThatSomeWindowsOnly*******Made.uif FileToStandard.iso

    and there you go, it will take a few minutes but you'll have your file.
