But, what if the file you need converted isn't one of these types of files? There are many formats that are not video, audio, image, or document based.
Here are several freeware file converters for several less common formats like disc images, fonts, compressed files, and more:
Note: Most of these programs convert only certain types of files so look through them all for one that supports the file type you need to convert. Let me know of any other free "misc" converters I can add to this list.
ImgBurn is a free disc image converter program that supports the majority of common disc image formats.
Input Formats: BIN, CCD, CDI, CDR, CUE, DI, DVD, GCM, GI, IBQ, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG, PDI, and UDI
Output Formats: BIN, IMG, and ISO
Actually, ImgBurn is an advanced, full featured CD/DVD/BD disc burning and image management tool but it works great at converting between most popular disc image file types.
FreeFontConverter is, you guessed it, a free font converter. The service operates all online - no download required - and it supports just about every font format that has ever existed.
Input Formats: BDF, BIN, CEF, CFF, DFONT, GSF, IK, MF, OTB, OTF, PFA, PFB, PT3, SFD, SUIT, SVG, T42, TTC, and TTF
Output Formats: BIN, CFF, CID, CID.CFF, CID.T42, DFONT, MM.PFA, MM.PFB, OTF, OTF.DFONT, PFA, PFB, PS, PT3, SVG, CYM.TTF, T42, TTF, and TTF.BIN
If you need a font converted, I doubt you'll find service, or software title, better than FreeFontConverter.
Snippet Converter is a web-based source code converter. You can easily convert between several popular programming languages with this free source code converter.
Input Formats: C# and VB.NET
Output Formats: Boo, C#, Python, Ruby, and VB.NET
Zamzar is an online file converter service that supports several popular archive and compressed file formats.
Input Formats: 7Z, TAR.BZ2, CAB, LZH, RAR, TAR, TAR.GZH, YZ1, and ZIP
Output Formats: 7Z, TAR.BZ2, CAB, LZH, TAR, TAR.GZH, YZ1, and ZIP
The 100MB source file limit at Zamzar makes it impossible to use the service for large compressed files. Zamzar's conversion time is also slower than some other online file converters I've tested.
YouConvertIt is another online file converter service that will convert several compressed and archive file formats.
Input Formats: 7Z, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZ, RAR, TAR, TGZ, YZ1, ZIP
Output Formats: 7Z, BZA, BZ2, CAB, RAR, TAR, TGZ, YZ1, ZIP
YouConvertIt has a 300MB input limit which, like other online file converters with size limits, could exclude it as an option if your file is larger.
