FAQ: How to open files .daa in Ubuntu

Q: How can I open .daa in Ubuntu or other Linux distribution?

A: DAA file is PowerISO Direct-Access-Archive and should be opened with PowerISO for Linux or AcetoneISO.

In order to install PowerISO do the following:

cd /usr/src
wget http://poweriso.com/poweriso-1.3.tar.gz
tar -xvzf poweriso-1.3.tar.gz

It comes as poweriso binary so you can execute it without compilation. Now you can convert .daa into .iso:

./poweriso convert your_file.daa -o your_file.iso -ot iso

Coming to AcetoneISO program.

  1. there is also a tool called daa2iso, which is packaged ubuntu — just install daa2iso from the software centre. it is free software (as opposed to poweriso),

    installing and converting is as easy as
    sudo aptitude install daa2iso
    daa2iso the_input_file.daa new_output_file.iso

    iso files can then be accessed as usual.
