Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Easiest answer is to burn it to CD

I also believe (haven’t used any myself) that there is software out there that will allow you to treat the ISO image as a mapped drive. A quick google search for “ISO mapped drives” turned up (among others) the following link which claims to do just that.

    If your .iso represents data, the first reply is spot on. The burning software will produce folders and files on the CD, just let it know that it is burning data, not audio or video. However, if you have a movie, .iso is what plays on most set-top boxes for the TV. For computer software, it may need to be converted to .vob or .mpg or .avi. A good freeware, if .vob is acceptable, is DVDDecrypt. If not, then any good video suite, such as Nero, Roxio, Pinnacle, ArcSoft, Intervideo, etc. outputs MPEG. If yours does not accept .iso as input, do it in two steps with DVDDecrypt. Each conversion takes about 20 minutes at 8X speed for about 90 minutes of video. Success to you, vbExcel

    http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/portal.php This piece of software will let you access .iso among other types of CD images in a virtual CD drive. Another program that is fantastic for this use is http://www.alcohol-soft.com/

    Nero burning rom 6 has a virtual drive that lets you run iso files to make sure that they work, if you download nero6 and install the virtual drive this will let you run and test any iso that is created. Regards Woody2812
