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.

"This product sucks"

July 30, 2009  |  By Thmsmccrckn

 |  Version: PowerISO 4.5

Pros

What a piece of crap

Cons

I used PowerISO and for the most part all it did was ruin 10 blank dvds. The discs are non-usable now and there isn't anything on them. Program says wait while burning, 1% of burn takes place and then it stops.

Summary

Piece of crap. Don't waste your money
