Better iso support



  • better handling of all iso formats please as pa is limited to certain iso versions.


  • conexware

    what ISO versions?



  • @davidsplash:

    PA is limited to certain iso versions.

    News to me??? i’ve never experienced any issues with ISOs. now that may be because i dont deal with them as much as you.

    Keen to know what format.



  • I created a disc image with clonecd iso by the way and powerarchiver couldnt open it.

    Another instance is that i have old iso very first versions of the iso format and pa cant seem to open them. I have iso over 4gbs which powerarchuiver has trouble opening. is there a size limit to isos powerarchiver can open

    Can powerarchiver edit non-standard ISO image files?



  • Cheers David, I rip DVD’s with AnyDVD and CloneDVD all usually over the 4gigs. But have never had an issue with opening them with PowerArchiver and that goes back years.

    However, you have raised a good point so on my next RIP i will play around more with PA and see if i have any read, write issues at any point.

    If i find anything, i will post it here. Thanks Fella.



  • if the iso has a loads of directorys inside each other pa seems not to be able to open them, wwell not surprising as winrar can’t either. its a fault with the iso format itself.



  • I have tested iso made by hacking groups only to see how powerarchiver handles them and they seem not to open. Though it could be down to them, being corrupt. Though i have heard you can repair iso in the same way you can zip files can we have that feature.

    thats a valid point for a request mate!! some form of PA ISO Integrity check and repair function…

    Spot on!



  • point to make how do you know if a iso is corrupt with pa if other archivers work ok with it?



  • Hi,

    I did have an issue a while back. I downloaded a kosher ISO (a Linux Distro based on Gentoo) IIRC. I wanted to have a peek inside the ISO before I used it. I complained to the webmaster that the ISO must be corrupt as it would not open in PA. Turns out the ISO was okay, but PA would not read it. This was the first and last time I have come across the issue.
