i know .daa files are PowerIso archive files and can only be run by PowerIso but i realise that AcetoneISO can also mount this file type... i looked up on the synaptic repository and couldn't find either poweriso or acetoneiso in it... can someone recommend me another Ubuntu native alternative that can mount .daa file format?

if there's no other program available i'll have to download PowerISO or AcetoneISO and install it, i'm just abit worried about their stability since they aren't in the synaptic repository

wget http://poweriso.com/poweriso-1.2.tar.gz
tar -zxvf poweriso-1.2.tar.gz
./poweriso convert image.daa -o image.iso -ot iso


will convert image.daa to image.iso. I think PowerISO should be stable, as it seems to be a commercial program.

I had to download and install. I could not find anything in the repositories. It was not hard. Acetone would not install on my mac fut it will on x86.

I seem to remember two or three in the package manager. I don't recall the names. in the search box put in something like converting files. Until you find what works for you. You can also try just iso.
