Create and manage ISO images


By attaching ISO 9660 images to conventional filesystems, AcetoneISO makes it possible to process them in an uncomplicated fashion. Images can then by modified according to personal taste, without requiring the cumbersome use of the command-line interface.

Aside from working with ISO images, the software also facilitates the handling of multimedia content. In particular, users of online services, such as YouTube and MetaCafe, can simply download and convert videos without the need for special browser plugins or additional software. Furthermore, by supporting the AVI format used by many DVD players, the software brings computers and consumer electronics closer together.

Images of any type can be burned on optical media, and a most useful split function makes life easier for users with CD drives. The only negative aspect is uneven localization for some languages; however, most of the functionality is intuitively accessible because of the very well laid out user interface.
