How to mount a virtual CD or "ISO" to a drive

You can do this if you have an IQ over 50.

ISO files are copies of of CD’s and DVD’s that people like to use if they don’t want to put an actual disc in their drive, whether it be for video games or movies. There are also BIN files which are basically the same and require the same steps to mount.

1. Download one of the many freeware programs for virtual mounting, Daemon Tools, PowerIso, MajicIso, etc.

2. Right-click on your program in the quick bar and scroll up until you see “Virtual Drives” or some, like PowerIso, already have the drives out and set up. There is by default 2 drives and 4 in others. I’m using PowerIso.

3. Click “mount image” and it will bring up a file window. Explore until you find your ISO and open it.

4. Congratulations, you have successfully mounted an ISO image.
