Windows Vitrual PC can't support Dual Layer DVD ISO file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry in advance guys, I can't find any forum better than this one.


    I have extracted a file by mounting the ISO to the DVD drive in Windows Virtual PC (Win7 32bits), and compare with the results that I extracted using Win ISO. They are different :(


    My host pc does not have a Dual Layer DVD rom. Is that the reason I can't mount that Dual Layered ISO to VPC? But it doesn't give any error when mounting.

  • Hello


    For these ISO images that you can't directly mount in VPC/Virtual Server, you can often use a CD/DVD emulator such as Daemon Tools (free,  ) or any other emulator as you wish.

  • The problem is that it can be mounted without any error.

    But you will find a lot of strange error (Not from the OS, but from the Application that you are installing / media that you a playing) when using it, you will always suspect the ISO image is corrupted, and kept on asking the originator to re-send a good copy.

    This problem is very annoying. I hope VPC can at least inform user that the ISO image is too large and is not supported.
