Power ISO is a disc image read/write application that can "mount" or open ISO disc images on your computer so they can be installed or viewed without actually burning the disc image to a physical disc. Power ISO is available online for free in a trial-version format and can be purchased from the software developer's official website for £19.40. You will need a disc image on your computer to open or "mount" it in Power ISO.

  2. 2

    Log in to your operating system's user account again and locate the ISO game disc image you wish to open or "mount" with Power ISO. Open the Power ISO application and select "Mount ISO Image," then browse for the ISO game image. Double-click the ISO file with your mouse and Power ISO will load the disc image.

  3. 3

    Your ISO game disc image will then be loaded in Power ISO, where you can freely edit, burn, or open the ISO image at any time by repeating Steps 1-2. Open the "My Computer" window and navigate to the virtual CD drive Power ISO creates to "mount" your disc ISO image files. Your game ISO image will be loaded in the virutal CD drive Power ISO created, and you can browse the ISO file structure in "My Computer" the same way you would explore a physical disc inserted into a CD drive.
