Additional Comments

Format Factory Version 2.96 Tested on Wine 1.5.10 using WineSkin on Mac OSX 10.8. Apple iMac CPU: 2.5 Ghz Intel Core i5 RAM: 4GB DDR3 GFX: AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB OS Software: OS X 10.8 (12A269) After finishing the convertion happens you get an "unexpected error" window, which causes the closing of the program. The ISO file created is complete. Format Factory shows 100% on the screen prior to the error screen. I burned the finished ISO and it works correctly too. I think it may be a special finished sound, dialog or similar that is causing the error. That needs more testing. If the error/crash can be fixed or avoided, I would rate it as a silver instead of bronze.
