Hi,

(1) I have an ISO file that I would like to play without burning it to a DVD. Is there a way to play it right from my HDD ? If yes, do I need any software to do it ?

(2) Also I have a "Multimedia Tutorial" folder that has an exe which when I click asks me to install that program on my hard drive. Is there a way to play that Tutorial without actually installing it on my hard drive ?

Thank you.

Hi georgetok

WinRar can open ISO-files.

Altho, I am curious as to why you would open it? (If thats not to nosy :) )


As for the tutorial, I don't think there is a way around that one..

Hello,

What you are looking to do is mount the ISO with something like Daemon Tools.

Cheers,
Mak

PowerISO is also nice. I've been told that it's better than DaemonTools. I've used both of them and I feel more "secure" with PowerISO because unlike DaemonTools, it doesn't give me that warning message during installation.

You’ll need a demon tool like alcohol 120%.
You can create a virtual dvd player/burner etc in which you can mount the iso file.
An iso file is an image of the dvd. with the right software (alcohol) your computer thinks its a real hardware dvd and you can play, install, copy, browse etc.
There are other demon tools.

Regards,
