Fans of disc management software like Daemon Tools and UltraISO will be able to appreciate WinISO, a tool that combines the features of being able to create, extract, and edit ISO files while also giving you the ability to virtually mount and burn image files to a CD, DVD, or Blu-ray. WinISO is extensive enough to be used in just about every situation where you need a solution to managing your disc.

We’ll be giving away 25 copies of WinISO Standard 6 (retails for $29.95) this week, at a total value of nearly $750! Interested? Read through this article to get familiarzed with the features of this software and check out the bottom of this article for participation instructions.

Easy to Use

The interface itself is very simple and intuitive. Almost every function and feature available to the user is presented across the graphical bar along the top, where you’re able to make, extract, convert, and more.

Nothing is hidden or tucked away in trees of submenus and that comes across to me as a way to help make the application seem more user-friendly and less intimidating. To someone who has never mounted a disc or burned a CD, the entire process could seem difficult and stressful. WinISO’s frontend makes everything come across as simple and point-and-click.

Adding Files and Directories to Make or Burn

By default, upon starting the program, a new volume has been conveniently premade for you. You can use this volume to create your first disc or disc image. Just right click on the area in the screenshot and you can add any file or directory to this disc.

From there, making a disc image is as simple as clicking the Make button.

WinISO offers compatibility in output formats alongside Nero, Alcohol 120%, and CloneCD. Creating your disc image takes just a matter of seconds. Burning is to the exact same effect. Simply click Burn, select a drive and imagine, and you’re off. It couldn’t be much more simple.

Opening Files and Drives to Extract or Mount

WinISO will allow you to open disc image files of any kind. You’re able to see a list view of all files and directories within that image, as shown in this screenshot. Extracting those files is, again, point-and-click.

Even easier is mounting the image that you’ve just loaded. Click Mount and, with no other interaction required, WinISO will mount the disc to the next available virtual drive.

I’ve never used a disc management software that makes these operations as painless and simple as WinISO manages to do. It’s something to definitely be appreciated.

Support & Tutorials

Though my entire emphasis thus far has been on what a simple program WinISO is, they do a great job of making additional information and support available to the user. WinISO offers FAQs, tutorials, a knowledgebase, and further support options to help you get familiar with its software. Some of the tutorials include material such as:

WinISO offers a trial version of their software that you can download for free to manage disc images under 500 MB in size. The software retails for $29.95, and you can purchase it here.

25 copies of WinISO are being given away this week, so jump into the giveaway while it’s available!
