  • How to Get and Run Rolypolys 2
    Despite what the page says, the file in question is actually a .img file, which won't be accepted by most programs out of the box. To convert it into a more usable .iso format, I would recommend using WinCDEmu for Windows, but other CD-related tools should be able to do the job as well. I don't know of any solutions for MacOS or Linux; comments for those platforms would be appreciated! Source: 6 days ago
  • THE R A P T U R E . a garfield comic i made
    What? oh. I used this version from the wayback machine, and then opened the iso with THIS handy dandy and quite small tool! I do that with a lot of games actually,. Source: 8 days ago
  • Where can i find Myth 3?
    Use WinCDEmu to mount the ISO, not the built-in Windows "Mount" command. Source: 12 days ago
  • The Movies: Stunts & Effects via OldGamesDownload
    I downloaded Preinstalled ZIP folder (2.26GB) and used WinCDEmu (an open-source CD/DVD/BD emulator) to mount the file. This is because the games were originally released on CDs or DVDs. ISOs and ROMs are basically electronic versions of the original game discs. OGD has a guide on all of this. Source: 28 days ago
  • I loved Maus so much that I had to get these
    If you are on Windows you can use WinCDEmu (free/opensource) to mount the ISO, or find a similar program for your OS of choice. Source: about 1 month ago
  • Archiving DVD's
    DiscImageCreator for making a complete backup (if drive is supported, otherwise use Alcohol 120%), and MakeMKV for ripping the video files from the DVD or ISO image. WinCDEmu is useful for mounting and as an alternative for creating an ISO image. Source: about 2 months ago
  • how do i convert .Bin and .Cue into one ISO
    If you're just looking for a convenient way to mount the images, have a look at WinCDEmu and just leave the BIN/CUE images as they are. Source: about 2 months ago
  • How to create a portable hard drive with all my physical disc games installed on it
    Older physical disc games often required the disc inserted to play. So not only would you need to install the game onto the portable drive and figure out how to keep the user/save data there, but you'd need to copy the game disc to an ISO image file and keep the ISO on the drive too, otherwise you're lugging your CDs with you. Luckily, Windows 8 or later have built-in support for mounting ISO images (ie. Creating... Source: 2 months ago

  • Is this normal with PS1 roms?(tracks?)
    Good god get rid of daemon tools, it is literally malware. If you need to mount images, WinCDEmu is free and open source. Source: about 1 year ago
  • What do I do if something like this pops up
    Put all the split parts in one folder, right click .part1, click Extract Here. The resulting file will be an iso. This is a disc image file which you can extract again with WinRAR itself (right click, open with winrar, drag and drop the contents outside) or you can mount it with an open source program like WinCDEMu, as if you inserted the actual CD.

  • How do you add windows/dos games that only have a bin & cue file?
    For Windows based games first you will want to mount the ISO file with something like WinCDEmu then you will want to drag the files into a folder. Personally I like to keep everything decently organized. So I would set it up as. Source: about 1 year ago
  • No DVD drive
    I recommend casual pirates to avoid this software and use Virtual Clone Drive or WinCDEmu instead. Deamon tools lite has optional potentially unwanted software that could install if you don't pay attention to those prompts. Years ago, they were caught injecting adware into their installers. If you are going to use this, I'd recommend obtaining the Pro version from the megathread to mitigate this. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Beginner question: Mount ISO to vm when you can't upload iso to datastore
    If 2008 server is too old to mount ISOs (can't remember) you could use a tool like WinCDEmu. Used to use that back on XP. Source: about 1 year ago

  • How do I turn a .bin into .iso?
    I downloaded the .zip file, extracted the .iso file, installed WinCDemu, right clicked on the .iso, and used select drive letter and mount. That made it act like I inserted the CD. I then ran the install program and followed the install prompts. Source: over 1 year ago
