Editors' Review

+

This muscular disc-imaging utility is not kidding around (though we thought the demo might be). PowerISO lets you mount virtual drives, create bootable discs, and generate CD and floppy images. It supports a huge number of image formats, including standard ISO and IMG files as well as files created by almost all popular disc-burning programs such as Nero, CloneCD, and Alcohol120%.

Our one major caveat is that the trial version doesn't let you create images larger than 300MB (most CDs hold 700MB), making it much harder to fully test the product. On the other hand, the trial period is unlimited, so some users may actually prefer this arrangement. Trial restrictions aside, we think PowerISO makes a good pick for intermediate to advanced users.

"Good, consider buying it"

January 14, 2008  |  By Kriss_superV

 |  Version: PowerISO 3.8

Pros

It installed easily. [It uninstalls neatly too]. I first tried it on an .img file to see if it'd work, and it showed all the files. My DVD burner s/w didn't recognize .img but PowerISO did. Was even ready to burn the files to disc. I haven't explored all the capabilities yet, though I must say at this point the program has good value.

Cons

Got confused when windows tried to access the dvd, PowerISO said something about not having exclusive access. Trivial problem.

"ISO editor - Ok but uses file formats that are incompatible with other programs"

January 05, 2008  |  By bognor-bill

 |  Version: PowerISO 3.8

Pros

ISO editing is as good as any other (UltraISO, etc.) so nothing to really shout home about.

Cons

The file system format is totally incompatible with any other ISO program out there therefore the whole reason for using it is now into the trash can. If I want to send an ISO image to someone they would have to have PowerISO on their system which is generally not installed. They should stick to recognised formats that are internationally acceptable like ISO. Won't buy - will stay with UltraISO

"small footprint, but no UDF"

January 01, 2008  |  By lettcco

 |  Version: PowerISO 3.8

Pros

small installation size, no bloated crap like nero, includes a virtual drive, easy to use

Cons

not idiot proof. burned a 4gb file, but unlike nero that warns me that DVD-iso limitation is 2GB and tell me to use DVD-UDF instead, this program just burn it improperly without UDF option. needless to say that dvd came out as coaster.

"Fantastically useful, especially for torrent downloads"

December 31, 2007  |  By fluffy_red_cloud

 |  Version: PowerISO 3.8

Pros

Handles most of the main file types you'll find if you use torrents to download your programs, its fairly quick, lets you explore files, rather than being forced to write straight to a disk and is fairly light on resources. All in all, a useful program to have.
