Running iso files directly on a PC





welshsteve
Hi everyone. I have an old Dell machine here that has a DVD drive, but it won't load the DVD i put into it (Windows installation disk). SO I want to virtualize the iso file so I can run it as though it was a DVD. Does anyone know the easiest (free) way of achieving this?

Personally I use Alcohol 52% - I've never had any issues with it.

Daemon Tools also very useful.
Try it. Smile

IMO Deamon tools has become nagware and Alcohol is not free.
try Virtual clone drive

Alcohol 120% is the paid-for one, 52 is the free one.


Although heres an alternative:
MagicDisc - used it for a while and it works fine.

I used to use DaemonTools, but I find it too difficult to crack it Smile

Magic Disc and Alcohol 52% are both goood for this.

I had a ve4ry very CD emaulator too

Called WinCD emulator.


Its useul if u carry iso files in an external hard disk and want to open it in other computers and don't want to waste time installing stuff

Win CD emulator (I think that's the name, do check) takes less than 20 seconds to be ready to work, while the pother programs need to be fully installed
