Yes, for all kinds - if there's no copy protection.
Some protections have physical characteristics which can't be stored in a standard ISO.

Another exeception would be multisession discs. The ISO format can only store one session.
Finally, something that doesn't matter/come into play very often: an ISO can't hold the layerbreak position of double layer DVDs.

Oops, sorry, forgot about that thread.
Principally yes, but depending on the copy protection (if present) you need to use DAEMON Tools Pro or Ultra instead of DT lite to create the image.
