Windows 7: Mounting a .Bin file

12 May 2011   #1

7 Pro. 64Bit w/SP1
Mounting a .Bin file

Both MagicISO Maker & MagicDisc are installed. MagicISO Maker has no problem opening the .bin file, but when I select Tools>Virtual CD/DVD-ROM, the only choice is: Install MagicDisc CD/DVD Manager(Freeware)...

Clicking this just opens to the download site. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong as I am new to this & thought I followed the Help section correctly.

You're doing it wrong, bro
Start with right click on the tray icon and go to "Set Number of Drives" (You only have to do that once)
Now again right click on the tray icon and you go to "VirtualCD/DVD-ROM -Mount"
Now you navigate the open dialog to the image you want to mount and there you are.

Perhaps your installation is borked. Uninstall the whole Thing with REVO uninstaller or CCleaner and start over.

Thanks. Realized this about 10mins. after I logged off earlier ... DOH!
Saw MagicDisc's Tray Icon, didn't know MagicDisc didn't open in a window as most programs.

I'll update this after I try the uninstall-reinstall route.

Did a complete uninstall, including doing a full comfuser Search & Registry removal of anything 'Magic'. Cleaned any temp files & internet cache.

Rebooted & later reinstalled Magic ISO Maker & MagicDisk, but same problem. Magic ISO Maker doesn't seem to recognize MagicDisk is installed; still lists: Install MagicDisc CD/DVD Manager(Freeware)...

But I think I can still do what I am trying to do. Which is ...
I have a few other games that are in WinRar's SFX format & I can have them extracted & play them w/o having to actually install them. Which actually makes the games much smaller in size & I don't have to use CD-R/DVD-R disks by burning the ISO's, thus keeping the games on a flash drive.

I didn't even bother to install Magic ISO maker since I was looking for the freeware solution.
You need to d/l and install this one: MagicDisc
but if you're happy with your flash all means stick with it

Yes, that is the version of MagicDisc I installed & it works just fine.
I'm just trying to figure out how to get my .iso of Jedi Knight: Mysteries Of The Sith to play w/o having to burn to disc / install.

When I try to 'Install', I get the message in pic #1
When I open the virtual CD drive to start 'Setup', I get the message in pic #2
When I just start the game's .exe, I get the message in pic #3

I just may have to burn the .iso so I can figure this out.
