MagicISO vs. UltraISO

Post by keegan » Wed Nov 15, 2006 5:23 am

I am looking to purchase one of these programs. I am wondering what everyone's opinions are on these. They are so freakin' similar I don't know what to think. Is there a comparable freeware program? I haven't found one yet.

UltraISO produces a good ISO every time (for me).

UltraISO is the fastes at creating an ISO image (that I've tried).

MagicISO has crashed on me more than once. But it is the only one that supported the formats I needed at the time. . . It is the most complete support.

Like you said they are the same (almost). . .

1 vote for you to get UltraISO. . . (wait for a few more votes first) :)

LOOOONNNNNNGGGGG forgotten that now (but that was the only reason I ever tried MagicISO and I was happy to go back to UltraISO again once all that was on disk. . . I only used the trial to do what I needed and still crashed out a few times)!!

Well so far UltraISO is the perfered tool (and I know why. . . fast. . . easy. . . many features and STABLE!!

I prefer UltraISO too.
Ver 8.5 support more and more formats too.

MagicISO contains build-in Multi boot editor. But it is very useless.


BCDW+UltraISO best package for me.

I also use EasyBoot. . . I am still finding Features in it I didn't know where there and it's been 3 years using it.

The only other tool I ever need to create stuff is Virtual Floppy 2.1. . .
It gets rid of the press any key to boot off Hiren's disk and other boot Floppy Image changes I may need. :)

Thanks everybody. I hadn't really used MagicISO enoungh (nothing worth mentioning) so I haven't crashed it...... But I gotta agree with the votes for UltraISO, it's a great program. Thanks for the responses, you've all been very helpful.

There is alsow a porgram called WinIso... (Well never mind..).

Site: http://www.winiso.com/

Short info:
WinISO is a CD-ROM image file utility that can convert BIN to ISO, extract/edit/create ISO files directly, make bootable CDs and as a BIN/ISO converter/extractor/editor.

It can process almost all CD-ROM image file(s) including ISO and BIN. With WinISO, you can add/delete/rename/extract file(s) within image files. You can convert image files to the standard ISO format and you have the ability to create ISO image file(s) from a CD-ROM.

I pursonally like Ultraiso :D

don't bother with winiso...it's not nearly as good as ultra or magic
personally i like magic because it has a nice quick'n easy boot img dialogue. haven't figured out yet where i set the no emulation, etc in ultra (basically i'm to lazy to look really)

then i should mention there's poweriso.
personally i'm not a fan, however it includes the proprietary .daa format that many ppl seem to be using for smaller image packs. personally, i don't see the point since iso is so well estabilished and uif could take care of any other issues. it does have a nice explorer like interface though..although i like interfaces with lots of shiny buttons...lol
anyway just thought i'd mention poweriso,

I vote for UltraISO. Fast, support compressed image (*.isz). The only thing that bugs me is when I want to burn audio CD, it tells me it can't because it's not a supported format (?).
