3. I think I heard that Daemon Tools has compatibility issues with Windows 7, is it true?
4. Inside WMC settings there is a entry to DT, may I use another mounting app there instead?
Thx u all
i've never used any media centres, so maybe i'm not the best person to answer these questions - maybe i'm wrong, and if i am, i hope someone will correct me.
1 - it seems wmc cannot handle iso files. so that option is out. saving each dvd to its own folder is a sensible option, ignoring copy protection issues. other ways include ripping the dvd and saving as an xvid or mkv - this will save a lot of drive space, but you will lose dvd menu functionality.
2 - it's not sensible to mount too many drives at once - for a start, you are limited to the letters of the alphabet (minus reserved ones).
3 - the latest daemon tools runs fine with my windows 7 rtm x64.
4 - i don't know, i've never used media centre.
it looks like you are both going to have to look at third-party alternatives to be able to use a big dvd library stored on your hard-drive.
can anybody recommend any?
