Does anyone out there have a suggestion for software that actually works on Vista for mounting ISOs? I’ve tried a few with varying results – from immediate BSOD on boot to nothing but a black desktop on boot (cursor included).
- MagicISO – This is the one that worked the best until a reboot. I’d just arrive at a black background with a mouse cursor – no login screen
- Virtual Clone Drive – Caused the Blue Screen of Death upon install and subsequent boot. Even in Safe Mode. I had to boot from the Vista disc, attempt a repair (which failed), then drop down to command line and rename/delete system32driversvclone.sys (I think that’s what it was called). Then everything came back up so I could uninstall this horrible excuse for an app. Note, I just realized that download page doesn’t include Vista as a platform. Oops. I had read others who were successfully using it on Vista so gave it a shot.
- Can’t remember what I uninstalled – I uninstalled it because ULead didn’t recognize the virtual drive. Now that I’ve ran into these recent problems I really wish I could remember the name of the software I was using because it worked except for the ULead visibility.
- Daemon Tools Lite – Yeah, this might have worked but is packaged with spyware crap.
All I want is to be able to mount an ISO as a virtual CD/DVD drive. A nice-to-have feature would be for that drive to appear as a CD/DVD drive in ULead
Media Video Studio 11 (edit: changed the name). For some reason MagicISO did (and worked until reboot) but others didn’t.
