The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 6.2
If you need an integral solution to your ISO – and other image file types – needs, PowerISO is a flexible image-processing tool worth considering. It can not only create ISO files from your data, video discs, audio CDs, or entire hard drives, but also mount, extract, edit, and burn ISO and BIN images easily and intuitively. Besides, this comprehensive application comes with a set of extra tools that will allow you to copy discs, rip audio CDs, convert images between formats, unpack archive files, create bootable images, and even save your old floppy discs as compact image files.

There is no image file type that PowerISO can’t work with. It supports not only all the most widely used image formats (ISO, IMG, NRG, BIN, or CDI), but also floppy disc image files (IMA or FLP), and the new Direct Access Archive files (DAA). These image files support features that are not so common in more widely used types, such as the possibility of compressing the image file, add a password to protect it, encrypt it for further protection, or split it into smaller files.

What makes this tool truly interesting is its wide array of ISO-related tools and features. You can do almost anything you can think of to your existing ISO and BIN files. You can open, browse, and mount them in a virtual drive so that you don’t need to burn them to disc to enjoy the content. You can extract their files with just one click, convert image files into any of the supported file types, make copies of your image discs, etc. Finally, it is important to mention its support for bootable discs – it allows you to create bootable ISO files, CDs, DVDs, and USB drives, and even use that USB drive to launch your Windows.

The possibilities are endless, and the program’s ease of use, its integration to the context menu, and its intuitive interface guarantee that any user can enjoy its multi-fold functionality and get results in no time.

Pros

  • Supports not only ISO files, but most image file types.
  • Flexible output configuration.
  • Extracts, compresses, converts, and encrypts ISO files.
  • Supports new and old disc types and formats, from Blu-ray to floppy discs.
  • Mounts image files in virtual drives.

Cons

  • None.
