Windows 7: MagicDisc

Well, I have eveything up & running just fine, but still need an alternative to MagicISO & MagicDisc. Is there a program that will both make & edit image files as well as being able to give me Virtual Drives to mount the images on?

No experience, but I've heard good reviews for a couple of the shareware titles.

Did you try uninstalling it, then install it and make sure you approve of installing the driver to install.

FrankYates: I'm a little hesitant to try MagicDisk again since it screwed things up so badly.

Kari: Is Gizmo able to create & edit .iso & .uif files as well as mount them?

I was also looking into PowerISO, but was told their program does not support .uif files. Maybe it'd be easier to convert all my .uif files to .iso? Anyone ever try UIF to ISO?

Have you tried MagicIso?

Yes, reinstalled MagicISO & has helped to convert as well as install .uif files to .iso files. But tried redownloading & reinstalling MagicDisc (7 x86/x64 version) & still received error (pic below)
so I just aborted.

Still would like a program to mount my files though.

Did you ever check out that Wikipedia link I posted earlier? There are two shareware apps listed that appear as though they are very versatile (PowerISO and UltraISO). They both appear to be able to at least read/mount UIF files.

There are also some freeware apps listed, although they appear to be more limited in their functionality. Take note of the OS they run on though.

Yes, the chart was helpful F5ing (wrestling fan?) & right now I'm trying out the freeware
Virtual CloneDrive. Seems to be what I'm needing to mount my images, just wish I could change the drive's name (BD-ROM Drive ...).

I've done it for my Media Card Reader drives & printer drive, but can't find the registry key to change the Virtual Drive's name.

No, not a wrestling fan. Made up user name is all it is.

You can use the F3 key to search through the registry to find refences to BD-ROM to see if it's in there. If not there, you may be able to do it with Device Manager.
