    Hi all, does anybody know how to read a CD image (*.iso)? I just want to see the content inside the image before burning it. I tried to use Roxio or Nero but they always want me to burn the image to a CD, not read it :cool:

    I like and use DAEMON TOOLS which creates a 'virtual CD/DVD' on you system so you can do just that...load a ISO file on it and read/run/copy it what ever...Pretty unintrusive; small system footprint...check it out here--->DAEMON TOOLS
    ++++ADDED LATER
    Just really noticed you mentioned NERO..Don't you have a virtual drive option in Nero?? Although I still like DAEMON TOOLS better

    ISOBuster will open an .iso file just as though it were an archive. You can extract the files it contains.

    Not sure of the limitations on the free version, but it is bound to have many useful features. The makers have vowed to keep all features prior to version 1.0 free.
