Convert DAA to ISO Disk Images in Linux

Posted by on Dec 4, 2008 in Linux3 commentsPrint This Post

Ever acquired a .daa disk image and been unable to burn it? DAA is the proprietary format of PowerISO – I’m not really a fan of proprietary formats of anything, and would rather have the disk as an ISO image. The PowerISO download page has a conversion tool for Linux which can be used to convert that pesky DAA to ISO, and can be used via the Terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) as follows:

wget http://www.poweriso.com/poweriso-1.3.tar.gz
tar -zxvf poweriso-1.3.tar.gz
./poweriso convert /path/to/source.daa -o /path/to/target.iso -ot iso

However, there is also an Open Source version available, developed by Luigi Auriemma. The Zip file contains a precompiled Windozzze binary, along with the source code – which is what we’re interested in for Linux. Once it’s compiled:

wget http://aluigi.altervista.org/mytoolz/daa2iso.zip
unzip daa2iso.zip
cd src
make

it’s really easy to use:

./daa2iso /path/to/source.daa /path/to/target.iso

The new ISO image can be now burned with whatever application you choose.


Something not quite right? Inaccuracies or invalid code? Didn’t work for you? Don’t like me using Ss instead of Zs? Add a comment below! All comments are welcome. Except spam, because spam is a bit crap.
