Upload ISO files to Google Drive for playback conveniently

Google Drive allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations with collaborators. Some people opt to back up Blu-ray, DVD as ISO file to save physical space and protect ISO disc from damage. Afterwards, they would choose to upload ISO files to Google Drive because of the following reasons:
  • It is a convenient way to back up movies;
  • They can carry the files with them while away from home;
  • It is possible to play them on smart HDTVs, other computers, laptops, tablets or other mobile devices via Google Drive. (Get started with Google Drive here)

However, you might fail to copy large ISO files to your Google Drive. Or, find that target device can't recognize the ISO files from the Google Drive after putting ISO to Google Drive successfully. What's more, almost all devices can't play ISO files natively. So, the best way to add ISO file to Google Drive is to convert ISO file to digital formats that Google Drive supports.

In fact, it's easy to upload your ISO files to Google Drive as long as you got a ISO converter in hand. I'd like to know if the ISO converting software does the job of compressing ISO down to a reasonable file size that can be uploaded to Google Drive for sharing or remoted access? And, there is no better converting solution than iFastime Video Converter Ultimate as it offers clean way to customize your own profile and it accurately estimates the output file size, where you can see if it fits your needs.

2. Prepare your ISO image files 

How to digitize ISO collection for uploading to Google Drive

Step 1. Load ISO movies

Click "Load file(s) > Load IFO/ISO" button to import the ISO file you want to convert to the program. This program also supports Blu-ray, DVD discs and folders. This software will import it quickly, and at the same time tick the main title for you automatically.

Step 2. Choose output format

Click and format bar and select the appropriate format. Since Google Drive supports MP4, AVI, MOV, FLV, WMV, etc video files, just select the one you need as the output format from "Common Video" or "HD Video" category. MP4 would be of no problem and you can just leave it. FLV will save you lots of space if you don't matter much about the video quality.

Step 3. Advanced profile settings

Simply click Settings bar and you can tweak the settings to your satisfaction and even save it as preset. iFastime's smart settings will fit most users' needs, I suppose. Keep in mind that the maximum resolution for playback in Google Drive is 1920x1080. 

Tips: If you want 5.1 sound for Google Drive, make sure you have 6ch as the source and you'd better select AAC or AC3 as the output audio encoder and set the channel to 5.1 Channels. Because we are not sure how the Smart Fit actually works for us, and MP3 as far as know, does not support 6 channels.

Step 4. Start converting ISO to Google Drive

After the above three steps, go back to the main interface and click the "Start conversion" button to begin converting ISO movies to Google Drive highly compatible video files. Then you can add converted files to your Google drive and even watch them directly from your drive. Enjoy!
