DVD Authoring Software


I am interested in both free and commercial software for Linux.
Also, I have PowerISO for Windows and would like to find some thing for Linux too.


Hello @cinema2k

I found a version of the PowerISO for Linux ¹ :

see in “Other downloads”

This is a free utility for linux which can extract, list, and convert image files (including ISO, BIN, DAA, and other formats). Type " poweriso -? " for detailed usage information. File Size: 278KB"

¹ i read on another website:

*free simply command line utility version dedicated for Linux. that uses without graphic user interface.

But I didn’t get to install, you can take a look.

There are good alternatives for you to test and verify that your needs is answered:

Thanks, I will have to continue work with this. My computer is in storage but has access to electricity. Work has me busy.


I have had the chance to use the free version of Light Works and I like it.
It is definitely different.
