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.

"Always works perfectly"

February 26, 2012  |  By DaDreamWizard

 |  Version: PowerISO 5.0


I got this a looong time ago. It worked fine then and to this day, it's as perfect a tool as ever.

It's always been my 'goto' iso/daa maker & iso/daa content viewer - extractor. That it turns on and off (& mounting) of virtual drives in a heartbeat is a serious plus plus.


no cons at all.


This is one of the older in this genre of applications and experience shows.

It 'can' burn DVD movie images also but don't use any strict iso app to create movie iso's. It can work, but all hardware may not accept it (Xbox 360's and more...) all the time.

This is a handy app that never left me with a day of regret. Not to mention I've tried & played with others over the years and it only reinforced what I already knew.
