Raster to Other Format tool doesnot recognize raster layer as the input!

I have been trying to convert the raster layers into Grid format. For the purpose, I have been trying to use the tool called "Raster to Other Format". The most surprising thing for me was that it doesnot recognize the raster layer as the input rasters. If I manually type the location name and the name of the raster layer and force the tool to convert into GRID format, it converts.

But I don't want to type the name of raster layers with its location everytime to convert them into GRID. Can anyone tell me why raster layers are not being recognized as raster datasets ? And how should I proceed to solve this issue?

Any suggestions would be really appreciated
