    Hi, I've been using windows 7 for some time now, works fine here. Except I can't install Daemon tools, cuz it's not compatible.
    So I decided to check if Alcohol 120% would work, but it can't install aswell cuz it requires a reboot and after that the setup will just start all over again requiring another reboot and so on. (just like daemon tools)

    On XP & Vista I didn't have that problem. Anyone knows if i can fix this somehow or another program to run .iso files on a virtual drive would be sufficient too. (only when confirmed working in windows 7)

    Thanks in advance:D

    I was looking for one myself until I read somewhere that PowerISO works.
    Yes it does!

    Magic ISO & Power ISO don't work

    This is really bad news for those who keep their important softwares as ISO images.Most ISO programs don't work on Windows 7.I got Magic ISO and Power ISO(latest Versions) installed on my Windows 7 Build 7057.They seemed to have installed quite well and were also able to make ISO images of files flawlessly.But the problems arose when I tried to install the softwares which I had as ISO files.Some of them appeared to be in the process of being installed but midway when the installer has to copy the temporary files from ISO file to the hard drive ,it gives out messages like-"Please insert the ABCDXXX disc into Drive XYZ to continue the installation".I don't know if the problem pertains only to large ISO files or smaller ones too, but it seems that the reason NERO discontinues Image Drive for its VISTA versions seems pretty much valid in Windows 7 also.
    Hopefully some Virtual Drive manufacturer will come up with a solution soon.Till then,all those folks wanting to mount their PC Games ISO images on the VDs and start playing,will have to do something else more constructive(like me blogging in forums about the problem!!!)
    It would be deeply appreciated if someone with more technical knowledge would throw some more info on the current problem.Thank you.

    not quite the end of the world just a matter of the virtual drive software to be rewritten to work on Win7 , In the meantime there are two or three that do work such as "virtual clone drive" and I also use power archiver to unpack ISO's if need :)

    I have 95gb of ISO's but accept Win 7 is still a beta after all ;)

    Power ISO latest version works like a charm and its causes no hassles on x32 version and im using it. Just run the set up and rest is done, just restart and everything works great. TC

    I haven't seen it posted yet, so I'll throw this one in the pool as well.


    Gizmo works flawlessly, and is also a free program. Tested on both x86 and x64.

    MagicDISK has been working for me.... I have not tried MagicISO though but I guess it's good that I didn't.

    I thought MagicDisc was part of MagicISO? It's just that you can download it as a standalone program as well for free, right?

    Anyways, yeah MagicDisc version 2.7 (Build 106) works fine on the x32 and x64 versions of Windows 7 (I've used it on all builds from 7000 to 7100 now with no major problems! Yay!)
