Windows 7: Mounting an iso image larger than 8 gig

Mounting an iso image larger than 8 gig

Hi, i've been trying to find an iso mounter (like Poweriso) that will be able to mount an image larger than 8 gig.

So far i've only come with the option to put my image onto a dual layer disc, how ever i dont have a multi burner cd driver.

So if anyone has or knows of a program that can mount images larger than 8 gig please tell me

*i didnt think that my computers specs would be a problem but ive baiscialy got
- 2gig ram
- 9500GT AVi graphics card (i think)
- 2.2 dual core

have you tried the free version of daemon tools?

i really don't know whether there is a file size limitation or not tbh.

Probably not the simple solution that you are looking for, but pretty much any Linux box can natively mount an ISO file without installing any other software.

mount -o loop -t iso9660 file.iso /mnt/test
