Unpacking a disc image to hard drive


charlieboy

Question

I have a disc image (.iso) file of a data DVD that I would like to "unpack" to my hard drive rather than to a DVD recorder. I know one can "unpack" a disc image of a video DVD in this way, but that option doesn't seem to be available in Roxio Disc Copier when the disc image is of a data DVD. Is it possible to "unpack" a disc image of a data DVD to hard drive? And if so, how? Thanks.

If you have version 7.5, you have the ability to mount a virtual drive on your computer using Disk Image Loader ( located under Extras & Utilities )

 

First, you have to create an 'Emulated Drive' with the program, then add your .iso file to it.

 

Basically it operates like another Disk Drive on your computer and allows you to open the files like you do on your computer's hard drive. Of course, if you want to make changes to the files, you're probably going to have to save them to your hard drive first. (Haven't done it myself, but I have used Disk Image Loader to play .iso DVDs on my laptop)

Many thanks to all four of you for taking the trouble to reply - it is much appreciated.

 

James - my problem was that I only get 3 options on the destination side if I select an iso of a video DVD on the source side. When selecting an iso (which is on my hard drive) of a data-DVD on the source side I only get 2 options on the destination side - the missing one is the one I was looking for, namely a data-disk equivalent of "DVD-video folder".

 

Marlin/Rollo - thanks for your suggestions, but I haven't had to try them because ...

 

ml - ... your suggestion solves my problem. Having created the emulated drive and dragged the data-DVD iso onto it, the data directories/files within the iso all now show up in Windows Explorer as if they were files on that emulated drive - so I can copy them onto my hard drive with Windows Explorer. Thank you so much.

 

 

Kind regards to you all from Surrey, England.

You're welcome. I learned something when trying to solve your problem and that always makes me happy.

I have V7.5 but I am hoping your version is the same. In the Destination side there should be 3 options – Recorder, Disc Image and DVD-Video Folder.

 

Pick DVD-Video Folder. From there you can use the Capture program or possibably just rename the VOB files to MPG…
