    Blinzeln support for mounting .daa image files and editing disc images

    Support for mounting .daa image files would be much appreciated, considering poweriso is not free. Also some capability for editing disc images such as iso would be much appreciated.

    An image format cannot just be "supported" if it's proprietary. They can only support it if the company that created the format chooses to release the necessary information.

    Already requested support for PowerISO daa images in a topic located 4 below this "support for more formats".

    (yes, poweriso is not free, but how did you make a poweriso image without it, or where did you get it?..)

    Not going to bother anymore about supporting those image files. Because now I know poweriso copied everything for daemon tools. Tried poweriso out and it's a piece of crap, first of all it's not free and it's still crappier then daemon tools which is free,that's really sad.

    Yeah, .daa would be awesome but, hey, that's life. No one would pay 30 bucks for PowerISO anyway.

    Default vendor lock-in

    this is another sad example of attempted vendor lock-in. while applications such as daemon tools strive to support the most number of formats in order to facilitate interoperability, there exist applications such as poweriso that attempt to muscle their way into ubiquity. many times these attempts are met with dismal failure, simply due to the product's lack of value. sometimes, the product is so innovative and unique that the attempt succeeds and becomes a standard. but rarely does that occur without opening of the protocol. acrobat/PDF is a great example. and sometimes, the ubiquity of the application/protocol is directly responsible for its ubiquity. ms office/word being bundled with new OEM PCs is a great example here.

    people should open their eyes and stop using poweriso, particularly if poweriso is resorting to draconian tactics regarding their file format. even microsoft (gasp!) has embraced interoperability in some regards with the latest office xml format.
