About PowerISO

PowerISO is an ISO file processing utility, to open, extract, create, edit, compress, split and convert CD/DVD images. The program offers full compatibility with ISO and BIN CUE formats.

The program’s interface has been designed with a simple layout, which helps beginners to use it without complications. During the installation, the program asks for the destination path, file extension association, shell integration, and number of virtual drives required for image mounting. These parameters can be modified from the Option’s menu at any time.

Once PowerISO is started, it is possible to create a new image from the file’s menu. By going further into the menus we see the classic elements that can be found in most of the Windows applications: File, View, Action, Tools, Options and Help.

DAA (Direct-Access-Archive) is usually a sophisticated format regarding graphic records. PowerISO provides a few sophisticated capabilities such as compression and security password safeguard.

When entering Options you can choose to change the look of the interface by selecting from the available skins. Some of them look pretty good while others are not so great. Also in the Options section, you can choose various file associations, operate settings on your virtual drives and many others.

Power ISO supports thirty-eight different languages such as English, Arabic, Armenian, Belarusian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lithuanian, Malay, Norsk, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Vietnamese and Kazakh.

Now you may think that this is the perfect CD/DVD burner tool for you. The first thing that you have to remember is that to fully take advantage of all of those features you need to buy the program. It is a shareware license. But you can evaluate the software. The trial version can not create or edit image files greater than 300MB. If you want to remove the limitation, you need to buy the Power ISO full version license code and activate it for Windows 7, 8, 10 and 11 with the registration code.

After you have installed the program and you start it you instantly figure out that this is not a free application.
