Opening MINISO files

Have a problem opening a .MINISO file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what MINISO files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .MINISO file type?

The verbose .miniso filename extension belongs to the proprietary .miniso DVD/Blu-ray mini-image format developed and introduced by Fengtao Software in the scope of their commercial DVDFab software. The DVDFab series includes a range of tools to copy, compress, and transcode protected DVD and Blu-ray movies. Because of advanced protection removal features, the use of DVDFab may be considered illegal in some countries.

A .miniso file is a relatively small (several megabytes) binary file. Technically, it is a 'mini-ISO' image that stores only a disk's header instead of its full copy. Such .miniso mini-images can be used only with their associated Blu-ray folders, with mounting capability provided by Fengtao's freeware DVDFab Virtual Drive utility.

In every Blu-ray folder created by copying a Blu-ray disk onto a hard drive, DVDFab creates a .miniso file. The .miniso file serves to enable playback of local Blu-ray folders even with those media players that do not support that natively. It is done by mounting the .miniso image onto a virtual drive, effectively connecting the associated the Blu-ray folder and making it look like if it were an actual Blu-ray disk.
