Mounting ISO Files on Windows

Believe it or not, Microsoft does have a tool for mounting iso files on Windows (similar to Apple’s ability to do so with Disk Images). No need to burn the iso to access the file. The download is here. Note the UI is ugly and somewhat undocumented, but it’s not to hard to figure out. Open the program, load the driver, then mount your image file. It’s unsupported, but it works. Hope this helps others wondering how to do this. No need to buy anything fancy.

    Do you have a link to some info rather than just the EXE download?

  2. There’s more information about this program at Softpedia and MSDN (click on the top link that shows up).

    There is an alternative: DaemonTools which is free and allow to simulate any CD/CVD with or without copy-protection. It is rather convenient when you’ve a laptop CD-ROM drive that is lousy and that emulates a chopper-takeoff each time it makes an access to a CD-ROM
