Opening DAA files

Did your computer fail to open a DAA file? We explain what DAA files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your DAA files.

What is a DAA file?

DAA stands for Direct Access Archive. Files with the .daa extension contain CD/DVD image files. The DAA file format is associated with the PowerISO file processing tool.

Files with the .daa extension offer advanced features like password protection, file compression, file splitting and more. The DAA format can compress media files, making it easier to store and download the movies and music that are saved in DAA format.

Users can also copy DVD and CD discs to DAA format. These DAA files will allow you to play the media on your computer without having the actual disc in your drive.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
