ISO Mounting Software

leave a comment »

If you are running Windows 8 then mounting ISO images is built in.

If you are running an earlier Windows version then you need software.  The simplest I’ve found is Virtual CloneDrive.  There are others that people seem to like, such as MagicISO and DaemonTools, but you aren’t supposed to install their free versions for commercial use, but Virtual CloneDrive is completely free and works great.

BTW: Don’t even think of using Microsoft’s Virtual CDRom Control Panel – it works on XP, but not on anything later without jumping through so many hoops that your legs will give way.
