Does anyone know of software, other than ACR, that can convert/save JPG's to DNG format.
I realize this does not improve/decrease quality. It just simplifies things by maintaining one file-type to handle.

Hi Garry, how about Adobe's DNG Converter, or is that too similar to ACR?

I was under the impression that the Adobe DNG Converter would only convert RAW files and would not accept JPG.
Have they changed it?

Ah, oops, I didn't read carefully enough. You where specifically asking about jpg, and indeed the DNG converter does not process those :(
So for batch operations, you'll need to go another route.  It has been a while since I wanted to convert jpg to DNG, but if I recall correctly you can open up multiple jpgs in camera raw, select them all and then click save images...which will allow you to save them all as DNG. Perhaps not as convenient as the DNG converter, but it gets you there.

ACR does do it, but I just wondered if any other program did as well.
