What is PowerISO?
PowerISO is a disc image and virtual drive application developed by PowerISO Computing, a software company based in China, similar to such software as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. PowerISO is mostly well-known for their pioneering work on the disc imaging industry with their DAA standard, or the Direct Access Archive, which PowerISO natively supports and other disc imaging software do not (except for MagicISO, which is unaffiliated with PowerISO). However, like most disc imaging applications, PowerISO can also support other types of disc image formats, like ISO, BIN, CDI, and NRG, and the maximum single file size that it can support is up to 256 GB. PowerISO is classified as shareware and is available for Windows platforms, Mac OS X computers and machines running Linux.
PowerISO has standard features common to most disc imaging software, such as the ability to extract and rip an ISO, or a disc image, from a physical optical media disc. A user can then burn this image onto another disc using PowerISO, or “mount”, or insert the image to PowerISO’s virtual drive. PowerISO also allows the editing of ISO files, and can convert between disc image formats (such as BIN to NRG).
